Toyobo (also known as Boxcar) photopolymer plate - 0.43mm thickness
This extra shallow plate is ideal for very fine lines like writing, drawings, signatures, fingerprints, etc. We suggest starting with an exposure time around 2min 30sec. This is only a recommendation, and the final exposure time for you will depend on the type of UV light you're using and the strength of the bulbs.
"These plates are fabulous! Had to have a play with curing times, but achieving some great fingerprint results. May even switch to these and the inkless method for all my fingerprint jewellery!" - Clare

IMPORTANT - Photopolymer plates are light sensitive until fully cured, and must be stored in their UV-proof package. Work in a room with as little light as possible, and keep away from windows with natural UV light. To light up your workspace, LED lights work well as they don't cure the plate.
PLEASE NOTE: Exposure time of your Photopolymer Plates can vary depending on the type of clamp you're using. We highly recommend doing test strips first to find the exposure time that works for the combination of clamp, plates or sachets, and light you're using.
Please read our Photopolymer Plate instruction sheet to learn how to create informative test strips.
