Developer for ALUCOREX plates


Use only the SPECIAL alucorex developer to develop the image. To obtain the developer, dissolve the granulated concentrate bag in 1 liter of distilled water at room temperature.

The order of development:

  • place the exposed plate in a plastic or glass bath so that the solution completely covers the surface of the plate. After a few seconds, the image will begin to appear;
  • use a soft brush or brush to remove reaction products until a metallic Shine appears. After 3-4 minutes, small gas bubbles will appear on the surface of the plate. This indicates that the development is over;
  • at the end of the development, wash the cliché in running water. To wipe the cliché, it is recommended to use paper napkins or a soft cloth. After the development and washing inside the image should not be gray or green dots.

If all the above conditions have been met, the normal depth of the cliché is 20 µm.

Before printing, wipe the cliché surface with alcohol or acetone.

To increase the run-time, place the plate in boiling water for 10 minutes.

To reuse, clean the paint cliché with solvent.


Features of working with the developer

Keep fresh solution in a glass or plastic container with a sealed lid. The developer in a leaky package loses its properties after a few hours.

Never mix a fresh developer solution with an old one. Use the developer in the amount necessary for the development.


Security regulations
