These polymer plates have the particularity of reacting to a certain range of ultraviolet light and being revealed with water. Photopolymers can be exposed with UV light equipment such as those used in screen, flexo and offset printing. Good results can also be obtained with home exposure equipment, but these are not recommended for photographic or demanding jobs.

Water-soluble photopolymer plates are a good alternative to some traditional engraving procediments, reducing the use of more polluting or toxic products for the user.
