M-FLEX® I

Reliable long life performance and excellent wear resistance. 

SWED/CUT M-FLEX® I Doctor Blade

M-FLEX® I is great for basic shorter runs with frequent blade change environments in print and coating applications where consistent precise metering is required. It is formulated of high-density, non-coated carbon steel that exhibits excellent wear resistance and uniform edge wear. M-FLEX® I is an ideal doctor blade for metering solids, line work, screens, and basic process using solvent and water based inks. It is particularly suited for wide web flexibles, multi-wall bags, kraft bags, and more.

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.
