SWED/CUT

M-FLEX® I

Reliable long life performance and excellent wear resistance. 

SWED/CUT M-FLEX® I Doctor Blade

The M-FLEX® I doctor blade is a first generation proprietary high-density carbon steel formulation that provides excellent wear resistance and uniform edge wear in a variety of flexographic and gravure applications using water, solvent, UV, and EB inks and coatings that require resistance from blade-to-anilox pressure with less flex.

MICROSTRUCTURE MATTERS

Compared to standard strip steel, the M-FLEX® I doctor blade’s microstructure is defined by it’s small and evenly distributed carbide particulate which assures slow and even edge wear, low friction, and smooth ink film formation.  For you that means a higher quality doctor blade that reduces the likelihood of common print defects, reduces wear to your anilox rolls or cylinders, and allows you to run your blades longer.
