    Abstract: A photographic contact printing process is disclosed having application in the mass production of replicate video discs from a master disc, and other applications wherein it is desired to replicate micro-detail over a relatively large area. A problem with conventional contact printing from a mask to a photographic medium is one of maintaining intimate contact over a relatively large area since dust, dirt, etc., are almost impossible to completely eliminate in any practical manner. In accordance with the present invention, a contact printing process is provided wherein intimate contact is not necessary for making high quality contact prints. The present invention recognizes that in contact printing information from a master disc to a replicate disc, the contact printing process is significantly less sensitive to imperfect contact between the master disc and the replicate disc if one employs a replicate disc comprising a photosensitive material having a certain optical properties.

This is accomplished by using compounds of the general formula ##STR1## wherein R.sub.1, R.sub.2, R.sub.3, R.sub.4 being the same or different, represent hydrogen, alkyl with 1 to 5 carbon atoms, R.sub.1 and R.sub.2 and/or R.sub.3 and R.sub.4 represent the alkyl groups necessary for completion of a 5- or 6-membered heterocyclic ring, wherein the ring may comprise a further hetero atom, such as N, O or S;R.sub.5, R.sub.6 being the same or different, represent hydrogen, aryl, alkyl with 1 to 4 carbon atoms;Y represents --S--, --SO--, --SO.sub.2 --; andn is 0, 1, 2, 3,which are added to the material as fading inhibitors. These compounds can be easily synthesized and are compatible with the system, having an absorption maximum below 380 nm and reduced fogging tendency. They may also be employed in the form of their hydro salts.

  • Patent number: 4414315
    Abstract: Process for making a lithographic printing plate having an oleophilic amplified image prepared by(a) providing a silicated aluminum substrate with a hydrophilic, anionic, negatively charged surface and a layer on said surface of a light sensitive, cationic, positively charged, water soluble diazonium material having at least two reactive sites per molecule, each reactive site being capable of being chemically altered by actinic light or chemically reacted with an anionic material;(b) selectively and incompletely exposing the diazo layer to actinic light to alter only a portion of the reactive sites thereby adhering the diazo material to the substrate in the exposed areas;(c) coupling the diazo layer with an anionic material to reinforce diazo in the exposed areas in situ and remove diazo from the unexposed areas by contacting the substrate after exposure with an anionic material in water in a quantity and for a time sufficient to couple the anionic material with the diazo and dissolve the coupled product from

  • Patent number: 4391897
    Abstract: Process for removing unexposed diazo from a silicated aluminum lithographic printing plate having a hydrophilic, anionic, negatively charged surface and a layer of a light sensitive, cationic diazo material which has been selectively exposed to actinic light in an image area. The plate is contacted after exposure with a solution of an anionic material in water. Anionic material from the solution ionically couples with unexposed diazo material and the solution still containing anionic material dissolves the coupled product from the unexposed areas producing a clean, hydrophilic background.

  • Patent number: 4291109
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a method and apparatus for producing color transparencies on a recording element comprising an additive color filter screen having disposed thereon a coating of a visible light-transmissive, invisible light-sensitive, silverless material, preferably a diazo or vesicular material. The method comprises the steps of imagewise exposing a panchromatic auxiliary layer, e.g. a photoconductive layer, to a multicolored object, such exposure being made through the recording element of the invention. This step acts to produce in the auxiliary layer a monochrome image containing color image information of the multicolored object. Next, the silverless material is exposed to invisible actinic radiation, such exposure being made through the monochrome image formed in or on the panchromatic auxiliary layer. This step serves to transfer the color image information from the auxiliary layer to the silverless layer of the recording element.

  • Patent number: 4282300
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for producing a highly readable diazo copy from a blue line original. An illumination source provides actinic energy which is substantially absorbed by the blue image of a diazo blue line print and in which no substantial exposure of the diazo paper can occur from energy which is non-responsive to the blue image. The light source produces major energy in the range of about 4600 to 5900 Angstroms. A filter or other means is provided to remove any spurious wavelengths which are non-responsive to the blue image and which can expose the diazo paper.
