The technical field to which the invention relates.
The present invention relates to film-forming polymers that contain attached to the main polymer chain soluble in the grounds of the resin, at least two side absorption in the infrared spectrum of the residue, selected from two different classes of dyes of the cyanine type; and containing heat-sensitive positive plate offset plates.
The prior art prior to the invention of
The process of offset printing is based on the General principle that the printing ink and water are immiscible. In conventional wet lithography paint, and water is simultaneously applied to the plate surface. In a positive offset plate plates hydrophobic or oleophilic image area formed after exposure and manifestation of the plate will accept printing ink, while the hydrophilic or oleophobic area without image, i.e. the background arising after exposure and manifestation will take water. Printing ink on the image is then transferred onto the surface of printing, such as paper, through an intermediate rubber cloth (offset printing).
In General, pre-press offset plates form a coating sensitive to radiation coating on anon the second aluminum substrate. The so-called conventional printing plates contain coatings that are sensitive to UV radiation, and in a positive offset plate plates solubility of the coating increases during exposure of the image, and so it can be removed by the developer to follow after exposure stage of manifestation. On the negative plates floor plates during exposure of the image is transformed into an insoluble state, and in the process of development will be deleted unexposed region.
For many years traditional UV-sensitive positive plate offset plates was based on the fact that the dissolution rate Novolac resin aqueous alkaline solutions is strongly reduced in the presence of diazomethane(DNH)sulfonates. This inhibition of dissolution caused by the formation of very stable matrix with hydrogen bonds between Novolac hydroxyl groups and sulphonate groups DNH (Arnost Reiser, Journal of Imaging Science and Technology, Volume 42, Number 1, Jan|Feb 1998, p.15-22).
When exhibiting under the action of UV radiation is fotorazlozheniya DNH patterns corresponding to interkarneval acid reaction, known as the Wolff rearrangement, which occurs with very high speed and considerable heat, creates heat burst of high intensity, which is th facilitates the efficient allocation of novolak matrix with hydrogen bonds and allows him to penetrate and dissolve under the action of aqueous alkaline developer. Also due to the formation of soluble carboxyl-products this increase in the dissolution rate can be high and can reach three orders of magnitude, which leads to very good image resolution.
Recently, the above-mentioned phenomenon of inhibiting the dissolution of Novolac resins have been used with great success in compositions for pre-press printing plates, which can be used together with new generations of technology exposure. After developments in the field of digital and laser imaging, namely the so-called technology "computer"form, or CTP, printing industry, producing artistic graphics currently require printing plates, which can be efficiently exposed with the use of these new technologies, known as laser prepress pravarasena printing plates.
Within the different types of laser pravarasena exposition of technological equipment (P technology) the most a large amount of development occurred in the exposure equipment using laser diodes emitting light at wavelengths in the near infrared (IR) region of the spectrum 780-850 nm. These systems became known as thermal system.
Prepress thermal plate and the use of equipment thermal P systems fall into two different categories: negative working and positive working.
In negative prepress plate thermal plates used IR-absorbing compounds in combination with photosensitive generators acids (irradiation-induced decomposition of latent acids of Branched) to reduce the solubility of the polymeric binder. The energy delivered by the laser, is sufficient to complete the reaction and reduce the solubility of the composition, and therefore, the reaction is terminated at the stage of heating before the manifestation of the print plate. Data pre-press plate is known as the negative plate thermal plate preheating.
In compositions for positive print working thermal plates laser light is converted into heat by the action of IR-absorbing compounds, and this heat can be used as a conventional UV-sensitive compositions DNH sulfonate/novolak direct destruction of inhibiting dissolution of the hydrogen bonds formed between the polymer binder and an infrared absorbing dye, which itself behaves as an inhibitor, and any other additional inhibitor.
In practice, the hydrogen bonds formed between the polymer binder, such as Novolac resin, and any not sensitive to IR-radiation inhibitor, can also be destroyed with heat formed directly by the laser, but this print is lastina will require very high energy to carry out this change and would not be commercially viable.
In thermal positive prepress plate precursor composition type IR-dye/novolak thus have a dual function: first, as a material converting light into heat, and, secondly, as (from)a dissolution inhibitor for Novolac resins. IR dye can be described as giving both the required effect - IR sensitivity and inhibition of dissolution.
After the processes of coating and drying production line prepress thermal plate must undergo the process of stabilization in order to achieve the education grid of hydrogen bonds, which give the desired insolubility of the coating. However, due to the weak nature of the ability of a typical IR-absorbing dyes to the formation of hydrogen bonds thermal print forms (plates), produced using the compositions for coatings containing a mixture of IR-dye and Novolac resins, form only a weak matrix, and thus the stabilization process proceeds very slowly at ambient temperatures (in comparison with the systems of DNQ/novolak). To avoid long storage times at ambient temperatures, the duration of the process may be increased due to the period of storage of large quantities of prepress plates in the furnace for conditioning when R is Guliyeva elevated temperature and relative humidity.
European patent EP 0823327 describes pre-press offset printing plate comprising a photosensitive composition showing the difference of solubility in an alkaline developer between exposed and unexposed parts, and the composition contains photothermoelectric material and high-molecular compound, the solubility of which in an alkaline developer changes by changing others, in addition to chemical parameters. Many examples, such as examples 1-10 and 74-77, discloses a photosensitive composition containing a phenolic resin/novolak, which is applied in the form of a film thickness of 2.4 g/m2on the aluminum plate, dried, and then subjected to stabilization at 55°C.
European patent EP 1024958 describes a method for the production of prepress positive thermosensitive plates without pre-heating, which includes a coating composition containing a phenolic resin, on a substrate, drying the composition and subsequent thermal treatment of the substrate with the coating, and heat treatment is carried out, at least within 4 hours, preferably at least within 48 hours, at a temperature in the range of 40-90°C., preferably at least 50°C. and not higher than 60°C. In the description of the inventors claim that they believe that if a higher temperature is neither too is Kai the time selected for the formation of stable mesh structure is too large to be of practical value. The compositions contain mixtures of phenolic resins and absorbing infrared light connections. The dry weight of film coating of the composition on the substrate lies in the range of 2.0-2.5 g/m2. Although the method is used to obtain a stable and persistent prepress offset plates, there are problems associated with high costs and production time due to the need for additional production process (from practice it is known that even at elevated temperatures, this process may exceed 10 days).
WO 02/11984 describes a composition for prepress positive photosensitive thermal offset plates without preheating, whose composition for coating includes a hydroxyl-containing polymer (for example, Novolac resin), and the production method, in which the coating weight of the composition on the substrate is less than 1.1 g/m2preferably not more than 0.9 g/m2. The patent application relates to a method for avoiding the stage of technological air-conditioning with heat treatment prepress plates after coating and drying of the plates on the production line. However, the use of such small mass of the coating in comparison with typically ispolzuemye masses of coatings can lead to a significant reduction of the service life of the plates, as, for example, the useful life time of service form and resistance to chemicals of the punching Department.
If such prepress plates are delivered to the end user prior to the completion of the stabilization process, then the process will continue at the enterprise customer, which will lead to unacceptable prisadochnym works that should be made by the consumer in the technological parameters of exposure and symptoms. On the other hand, if the manufacturer of the plates are not exactly in control of the conditioning process, it can lead to significant variation in characteristics of the same end product (ISO plate and settings manifestations). There are also obvious problems for the manufacturer associated with higher costs due to higher energy costs, increased times of the production cycle and the complexity of the software.
Despite the successes already achieved in attempts to obtain stable and persistent prepress plate, there remains a need for compositions that do not require the additional problem of the conditioning process in order to obtain a stable product.
In the above-cited patents in the compositions for coatings prepress plates used IR & rsquo; s who in the mixture or with the addition of Novolac resin, but we also know that absorbs infrared light, the connection may take the form side of the chromophore groups attached to the main polymer chain.
U.S. patent 6124425 describes coatings based on thermosetting absorbing in the near infrared spectrum of the polymer, processes for their preparation and methods of their use. The patent describes obtaining a photosensitive polymer, both negative and positive working type and obtaining offset plates containing polymers.
WO 01/94123 discloses the receipt and use of polymers containing cyanine dye, attached to the main polymer chain, the polymer further comprises about-financeasia groups attached to the same polymer chain, and optional dissolution inhibitor.
European patent EP 1186955 describes the use plenkoobrazuyushchie polymers containing infrared chromophore, upon receipt of the photomasks, predecessors photomasks, electronic parts and their predecessors. The patent does not relate to the production of offset plates.
European patent EP 1297950 describes polymers for use in obtaining offset plates containing chromophore components that absorb in the visible part of the spectrum in the wavelength interval from 400 to 780 nm. The patent refers to the attachment of the pigment is s dyes to the main polymer chain to avoid the formation of spots on the substrate offset plates.
The above-cited patent applications relate to the problems of multicomponent systems in the production or migration of the dye after him, but not to post-process conditioning. In these patent applications, all of the examples relate to the use of the chromophore of only one type, attached to the main polymer chain.
The present invention is to overcome the disadvantages of the known thermal photosensitive positive offset prepress plates, which require long-lasting post-process conditioning at elevated temperature and which does not suffer from a reduced latitudinal characteristics during their operation.
Summary of the invention

Detailed description of the invention
None of the known technical the solutions is not specified or is not supported the idea of merging two different classes of cyanine chromophores directly to the main polymer chain soluble in the grounds of the resin. It has been unexpectedly found that the addition of a second chromophore group of the cyanine dye type in soluble bases resin gives unexpected positive synergistic effect on the stabilization time for prepress plates made with this composition. This improves the stabilization process, pre-press plate to such an extent that it eliminates the need for additional process, the process terminates itself within days of storage at room temperature.
Not wishing to bound to any particular theory, the inventors hypothesized that this surprising effect in stabilizing prepress plate due to improved sterically strained, made two covalently United chromophores of different molecular structures, causing as a result, the formation of more stable matrix, which is able to resist unwanted penetration and dissolution of the unexposed areas by the developer.
Soluble in bases resin intended for use in obtaining polymeric dye used in the photosensitive composition of the present invention may be any resin used in offset plates of this type, which contains a nucleophilic group capable of interacting with the absorbent in infrakrasnoi spectrum cyanine dye. They are well known in the field, their dissolution rate in alkaline developer is increased after exposure to radiation.
It is preferable to use a phenolic resin. They are products of the condensation reaction between the corresponding phenols, for example by phenol, alkyl substituted phenols (including Cresols, Xylenol, carbonaceous, p-tert-butylphenol, p-phenylphenol and nonylphenols), diphenolate, such as bisphenol a (2,2-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)propane, and the corresponding aldehydes, for example formaldehyde, Harlem, acetaldehyde and furfuraldehyde. The type of catalyst and the molar ratio of the reactants used in the preparation of phenolic resins, determine their molecular structure and therefore the physical properties of the resin. Used the ratio of aldehyde:phenol in the range of between 0.5:1 and 1:1, preferably from 0.5:1 to 0.8:1 and an acid catalyst is used to produce those phenolic resins, which are usually known as novolak, which are thermoplastic in nature. Higher ratio of aldehyde:phenol in excess of from 1:1 to 3:1, and the alkaline catalyst will give a class of phenolic resins, known as resale, and they are characterized by their ability to heat-curing at elevated temperatures.
More preferably, the resin used as the main polymer chain is absorbing in the near infrared spectrum of the polymer, is a Novolac resin. Depending on the method of conducting the condensation reaction can be obtained a number of phenolic materials with different structures and properties. Novolac resin may be a resin obtained by condensation in the presence of an acid catalyst, at least one compound selected from aromatic hydrocarbons, such as alkyl substituted phenol, m-cresol, o-cresol, p-cresol and at least one aldehyde selected from such aldehydes as formaldehyde or acetaldehyde. Instead of formaldehyde and acetaldehyde can be used paraformaldehyde and paraldehyde is recommended. The mass-average molecular weight Novolac resin, calculated as polystyrene, measured by gel chromatography (hereinafter designated simply as GPC) (mass-average molecular weight, measured by GPC, hereinafter will be referred to as Mw)is preferably from 1,000 to 15,000, particularly preferably from 1500 to 10000. Aromatic hydrocarbon Novolac resin preferably is a Novolac resin obtained from the condensation of at least one phenol selected from among C-alkyl substituted phenols, o-cresol, m-cresol, p-cresol and at least one compound selected from among these aldehydes, as fo is Maldegem or acetaldehyde. Among them, preferred is a Novolac resin, which is a product of the co-condensation of the aldehyde with the phenol, including m-cresol/p-cresol in a molar ratio of from 70/30 to 30/70, or with phenols, including phenol/m-cresol/p-cresol in a molar ratio of from 10 to 100/0 to 60/0 to 40. Among the particularly preferred aldehydes is formaldehyde.
Polymeric dyes can be obtained, for example, by reaction of the above resins with a mixture of two corresponding indelaware and benzo[e]indolenine infrared dyes containing reactive halogen atom, in standard conditions with flow required dehydrohalogenation. Reaction conditions similar to those described, for example, in U.S. patent 124425, WO 01/94123, European patents EP 1186955 and EP 1297950, cited above, but when using sequential or simultaneous administration of the two dyes instead of only one dye. Preferably two dye that must be attached to the main polymer chain of the resin, is injected simultaneously as a mixture.
The ratio of the total number of infrared chromophores to soluble bases resin in a suitable case has a value lying in the range from 1:50 to 1:3, preferably in the range from 1:30 to 1:5. Relationships are calculated so that, for example, 1:50 is equal to 1 part by weight of the total IR-dye is I (0,5+0,5 if both dye used in equal shares) to 50 parts by weight of novolak, ie 2% by weight, or 1:3 is 1 of all dyes to 3 parts of novolak, i.e. 33,3% by mass.

In the composition for coating can optionally contain other optional components. Sensitive to infrared light, the composition may further include a pigment to facilitate visual inspection of the exposed and developed plate. This makes it easier as a visual determination of image defects and the use of measuring optical density. Suitable pigments are those that dissolve well in the solvent or solvent mixture used for coating. Typical examples include triarylmethane dyes and phthalocyanine dyes.

Surfactants that may be used include fluorocarbon surfactants such as FC-430 company 3M Corporation or Zonyl Ns company DuPont, block copolymers of ethylene oxide and propylene oxide, known as Pluronic and produced by BASF, and polysiloxane surfactants, such as BYK 377 production BYK Chemie. Data surfactants improve the property coverts composition to give a good appearance during its application to the substrate, allowing you to avoid defects and the appearance of empty seats on the layer. The amount of surfactant is in the interval from 0.01 to 0.5% by weight calculated on the total weight of solids of the composition.
Photocast is sustained fashion composition, intended for use in the present invention are usually obtained by dissolving the above various components in a suitable solvent. The solvent is not specially limited if only it is a solvent which provides sufficient solubility for used components and excellent porosity of a coating film. This can be, for example, cellosolve solvent, such as methylcellosolve, ethyl cellosolve, methylcellosolve or ethylcellosolve, propylene glycol solvent, such as onomatology simple ether of propylene glycol, monotropy simple ether of propylene glycol, monobutyl simple ether of propylene glycol, acetate nanometrology simple ether of propylene glycol, acetate of monoethylene simple ether of propylene glycol, acetate monobutylether simple ether of propylene glycol or dimethyl simple broadcast dipropyleneglycol, ester solvent such as butyl acetate, amylacetate, ethyl butyrate, mutilated, ethyllactate or methyl-3-methoxypropionate, ketone solvent, such as cyclohexanone, methyl ethyl ketone or acetone, or a mixture. The proportion of solvent is usually a value in the range from 1 to 20-fold in mass relative to the total amount of the photosensitive composition. Of these solvents predpochtite the school is a mixture of acetone/onomatology simple ether of propylene glycol.
The substrate used in offset plates of the present invention, can be any lithographic substrate. This substrate can be a metal sheet or polymer film. The preferred metal substrate is a sheet of aluminum (including aluminum alloys). Particularly preferred is an aluminum substrate, which was subjected to electrochemical graining, anodizing and sedimentation separation layer. The preferred polymeric film substrate is a polyester film. For wet offset plate substrate should have a generally hydrophilic surface, wet offset plate has a hydrophilic substrate and an oleophilic photosensitive layer. Particularly preferred hydrophilic substrate for wet offset plate is an aluminum substrate, which was subjected to electrochemical graining. A rough surface can optionally be anodized with the formation of a solid surface aluminum oxide using an acid electrolyte such as sulfuric acid and/or phosphoric acid. Roughened and anodized aluminum surface can be further processed to improve the hydrophilic properties of the surface. For example, the aluminum substrate can be treated on the surface with a solution of silicate NAT the Oia at elevated temperature, for example 95°C. alternatively, may be applied phosphate processing, which includes processing the surface of the alumina phosphate solution that may further contain an inorganic fluoride. Can also be used hydrophilic polymer solutions, such as polivinilatsetatnaja acid. The preferred polymers are polivinilatsetatnaja acid and its copolymers. The ways of applying hydrophilic separation layer on the aluminum in the production of offset printing plates are well known in this field.
As a method of applying a coating of the photosensitive composition on the surface of the substrate intended for use in the present invention, preferred is a standard way, such as meniscus coating, more preferably the coating on the plate to make using a roller device for coating meniscus type, and the percentage of solids in the coating for this type of application lies in the range of 5-15% wt./wt. when using a solvent or mixture of solvents, depending on the linear speed and the rolling speed of the applicator. The coating is applied so that the dry weight of the coating was in the range of from about 1.2 g/m2to about 2.0 g/m2. More prepact the positive values were used from about 1.4 g/m 2up to about 1.9 g/m2.
Prepress offset plate of the present invention after coating is subjected to a drying process. The preferred method is a method of regulating the temperature in the drying process in several stages. At the first stage of drying that occurs in the drying chamber, the temperature interval and the duration of drying is set to drying lasted at least 10 seconds until complete drying of the photosensitive layer with a constant speed after coating. Here the end of drying at a constant speed represents the time from the beginning of the drying up until the evaporation of the coating film will not reach the stage defined by the internal diffusion. The amount of residual solvent at the completion of the first stage of drying is preferably a value ranging from 8 wt.%, more preferably in the range of 6 wt.%, by weight of a photosensitive material. Drying temperature in the first stage of drying is preferably at least 25°C and preferably at most 60°C., and more preferably at most 45°C. Then the second four stages of drying, the amount of remaining solvent is gradually reduced preferably at most up to 2 wt.%, more preferably the b is more up to 1 wt.%. Drying temperature zones in the second stage drying can be equal to or ordered so that the temperature is slowly increased and then decreased before the gate area. Ordered scheme is preferred. The temperature in these zones is preferably at least 100°C., more preferably at least 130°C., preferably at most 140°C.
After drying the substrate coated cut longitudinally with obtaining pre-press printing plates of the present invention. Then they are stored at room temperature for stabilization. As shown in the examples, such a short time of stabilization, as from 4 to 7 days, is sufficient to obtain a stable and durable prepress offset plates according to the invention.
In another aspect, the present invention relates to a positive plate offset printing plate obtained after exposure by the image exposure and processing described above prepress plate. The exposure of the image causes a change in the dissolution rate relative to the unexposed parts of the infrared light-sensitive coating and the exposed part of the coating. In the process of development of the exposed part is dissolved with the formation of the image.
The exposure can be conducted using direct laser addressable is expositional equipment (CTP technology). Examples of lasers that may be used include semiconductor diode lasers emitting in the region of wavelengths between 600 nm and 1400 nm, especially between 780 nm and 850 nm. Examples are laser diode mounting fixture to form sold by Creo under the trade mark Trendsetter, which emits at 830 nm, or Dainippon Screen PlateRite 8000 having a wavelength at the nominal output power of the laser 808 nm, but can be used any laser with sufficient power to generate the image, and whose radiation is absorbed by the composition. Additional details of the process of laser exposure is well known to specialists in this area and are discussed in detail in the aforementioned patent applications.
The sensitivity prepress plate according to the invention, the most high, when exactly corresponds to the wavelength emitted by the laser creates an image of the equipment, so that the composition prepress plates made sensitive to 830 nm, will have less sensitivity in the equipment emitting radiation at 808 nm, and Vice versa. When using polymer absorbing in the near infrared region of the spectrum according to the invention containing two different types of chromophores with different absorption peaks, the invention has an additional advantage that is protected by the required sensitivity for equipment at both wavelengths of 830 nm and 808 nm.
After exposure, the exposed plate are on automatic processor with a suitable developer composition. The composition of the developer depends on the nature of the polymer substrate, in the present invention, it is preferable alkaline aqueous solution. the pH of the developer is usually a value in the range of 11-13 with conductivity 70-80 MSM. The automatic processor depends on the model, but the manifestation is usually conducted in the temperature range of 20-25°C and dive time 25-35 seconds. The necessary conditions for the manifestation of thermal plates are well known to specialists in this field.
