Hydro’s HA1052B alloy offers enhanced features in H18 and H19 temper. It is based on our HA1052 universal alloy for offset printing applications. With our new surface treatment, HPSplus, we ensure an optimized homogeneous surface that enables offset plate manufacturers to add value to their process chain, providing increased throughput rates on the production line, higher energy efficiency and consistent product quality. All our products are suitable for mechanical and electrochemical graining, with gauge-range of 0.1–0.5 mm and width-range of up to 1,650 mm.
