Anyone have any experience with these? Head guy is wanting to discuss switching from our Fuji plates. Personally, we don't have many problems with the Fuji plates we're using and not really interested in opening up a whole new set of issues by switching. Curious as to others who have experience with Kodak Process Free ones though.TYI.


We been wanting to switch too, but the Kodak plates have too light of an image for our auto loaders on our KBA presses for them to work. That's the only issue that I know of here. We have tried the first and second gen of the Sonora plates.

Miserable experience with the image not staying fixed, and woefully inconsistent screening

We used them without problems for 5 years. They will fade if left exposed to light for too long. Only reason we stopped using them was we got a better deal on Heidelberg plates.

Our Fuji processless plates do not tolerate light either.
