Ink spitting (blow by) is ink that gets through the metering process and on to the image area in unintended places.  This creates a frustrating problem on press and print quality outputs that customers reject.  Ink spitting is often the result of a doctor blade that is poorly matched to the metering application.

 

Daetwyler's new Pearlstar blade greatly reduces or eliminates ink spitting.

 

Whether you are metering coatings, adhesives, inks or high-end applications like UV inks, the right doctor blade matched to the metering application will have a significant impact on the quality of your outputs and your pressroom's efficiency.

 

Call on Conversource for your everyday and most challenging doctor blade needs.

Pearlstar by Daetwyler

 

Advantages:

  • New coating technology significantly reduces ink adherence to the doctor blade and lowers friction values, which greatly reduces or eliminates UV spitting in Flexo label printing
  • Reduced ink adherence also results in significantly less drag outs and streaks in the print
  • Reduces back doctoring in Flexo printing
  • Outstanding performance with (cold seal) lacquers and in combination with adherent fluids
  • Reduces defects in the entire print run and increases performance
