Gamutstar is available with radius or lamella type tips, in widths of 10 mm – 60 mm and thicknesses of 0.15 mm, 0.20 mm and 0.25 mm.
New fluid-repellent coating – MDC Pearlstar Doctor Blade
The new MDC Pearlstar doctor blade for flexo and gravure printing and coating applications. It offers the promising opportunity, to reduce and even completely avoid the adhesion of colours, paints or adhesives during printing and lamination.
Pearlstar is provided with a new proprietary ink repellent coating. This significantly contributes to the reduction of build-up of inks, varnishes, cold seal adhesives and other transfer media onto the doctor blade. Such a performance enhancing measure results in considerably fewer drag outs and streaks in the printed image and also offers corrosion protection. This repelling property added together with low friction values make it ideal for customers experiencing back doctoring issues. Pearlstar is available in lamella/radius tips with widths of 10 mm – 60 mm and thicknesses of 0.15 mm, 0.20 mm and 0.25 mm.
