Electrolysis

 

 

PRODUCTION LINKS

Since 2011 we have incorporated the electrolytic printing process into our range of activities at La Ceiba Gráfica. This electrochemical process minimizes toxic effects on the health of the printmaker and the environment, since it does not use acid for etching the plates, and does not give off gases or deposit toxic residues in the drainage system.

 

Electrolytic printing is an electrochemical process that acts by means of a continuous, low-voltage current in a saline bath. The bite characteristics of electrolytic printing open up a wide range of possibilities to printmakers for experimentation and research, enriching the visual range of the medium.

 

Our acid baths for steel measure 70 x 120 cm and those for zinc and copper measure 75 x 75 cm.
