High-performance printing blade. Ceramic-tipped flexo blade is a steel blade with an enhanced working edge. It requires no run-in time and provides constant quality throughout its lifetime. The tip wears slowly and evenly, resulting in fewer blade changes, hence less press downtime, and maintains consistent print quality. Although the blade tip ceramic material has a different, softer composition than the ceramic coating of the anilox, the two are perfectly compatible. As the blade tip is protected, there is no risk of metallic slivers or shavings off the blade mixing with the ink and causing lines.
Corrosion resistant material best suited for water based and aggressive inks or coatings. Used where carbon steel blades will rust.
Rust resistant steel grades.
