Our plate supplier has expressed that he is concerned about the amount of ozone in our plant but did not explain why. Can you tell me what this has to do with the plates that he supplies us?
Ozone is generated by electrical motors and corona treater equipment and is a form of oxygen. The reason your plate supplier is concerned is that ozone will attack all forms of plates and will eventually cause cracking in the plate surface, which will obviously make them unusable. For this reason you should store plates well away from areas that ozone may be generated as well as away from any direct UV such as sunlight, which will have a similar effect.No Comments
