Depth Measurement Gauge
Laser plate making is about making quality etched graphics with the right dot pattern at the right depth for your pad printing production needs. Being able to accurately measure the depth of your plate is a critical element for dialing in your printing process. Our specially designed Depth Measurement Gauge is accurate to .0001" and is able to measure laser or steel plate depths with precision and repeatability.
Do you need to identify a specific Pantone number of the product in your hand? No problem, simply hold the Color Cue over the product, press the button and Color Cue will provide the PMS number instantly. You can then use the number to accurately mix the proper ink color and begin printing.
Is the quality of print important? Do you need to see what is causing a defect in your printing plate? Has too many years in the industry looking at ink affected your vision? Our full range of eye loops and optics will enhance the vision of even the most optically challenged.
Laser/Ink Jet Film Positives
If you want to produce film positives in house off a high quality laser or inkjet printer, ICN has specially designed film. It is created to accept ink and, without blotching or bleeding, produce high quality opaque film positives. When ordering, please specify whether you are using a laser or ink jet printer.
Printing a big reverse and you need a little more opacity in the center of the graphic? Use the Toner Spray to help improve the coverage and opacity of your Laser or Ink Jet film positive.
Screen Film for Polymer Plates
To make high quality polymer plates for pad printing you need high quality screen film to make accurate dot patterns. It is offered in 150 line (bold images), 200 line (standard images) or 300 line (fine images) formats in half or full sheet sizes.
We distribute Justrite Safety cans for flammable solvents and other dangerous liquids.
Functions of the safety can:

- Offer compliance with federal OSHA regulations, state and local fire codes.
- Facilitate pouring and filling

- Lead free steel with chemical-resistant finish
- Internal flame arrester within the fill-pour spout dissipates heat to prevent ignition
- Wide free-span opening on lid for easy filling
Most popular types:
- Type I: economical can with a single spout for filling and counterbalanced pouring
- Type II: one larger spout for filling and another spout with a hose for smooth pouring
Solvent Plunger Cans
Justrite Plunger cans are designed to moisten cleaning cloths and swabs. Pushing down on the brass pump assembly fills the upper pan with a measured amount of liquid. Surplus liquid drains back into reservoir. The perforated pad screen serves as a flame arrester.
This is not only the safest way to moisten wipes but also the most economical. There is no waste because excess liquids drain back into the can. You use only the amount you need.
Bench (Washer) Cans
Bench cans provide an easy means of cleaning small parts in solvent. Simply place work on spring-loaded, perforated dasher plate, press down and agitate, then release to return dasher to drain position. Plated steel dasher is an effective flame arrester. Hinged cover minimizes evaporation losses. Protected rim reduces the possibility of hand injury. Cans are made of sturdy 24-gauge lead-free coated steel and finished in a tough powder paint for added durability.
Oily Waste (Safety Disposal) Cans
These cans are for safe disposal of rags and cloths soaked with solvents, thinners, oils, adhesives and other flammable liquids. The lid opens no more than 60 degrees and stays closed when not in use, isolating contents from fire sources and limiting oxygen so spontaneous combustion risk is virtually eliminated. Elevated bottom helps disperse heat and reduce moisture buildup and rusting.
Disposal cans come in a variety of sizes. Hand or foot operated covers are available.
We distribute Justrite cabinets for flammable liquid storage such as ink solvents. The cabinets are engineered to store hazardous chemicals safely as well as to help organize, segregate and visually identify dangerous liquids.
These steel safety cabinets meet and exceed the National Fire Protection Association Code (NFPA 30) and OSHA 29 Code of Federal Regulations. They have also earned certification from Factory Mutual (FM approved), and Underwriters Laboratories (UL/ULC listed).
Cabinet sizes vary from 4 gallons (15 liters) to 120 gallons (454 liters). Smaller cabinets allow solvents to be stored at worksite locations. Under counter, wall mount, slimline and piggyback styles are available. For high capacity storage there are cabinets designed specifically to house 30-gallon or 55-gallon drums.
