SWED/CUT

MFLEX® PLUS

Ultimate performance for low-impact and longer blade life. 

SWED/CUT MFLEX® PLUS Doctor Blade

M-FLEX® Plus is our most wear resistant, non-coated, ultra-refined carbon steel that maintains precise metering of water and solvent inks or coarse coatings. It is reported to maintain precise metering for ink and coating applications many times longer than other non-coated blades and some coated blades.

M-FLEX® Plus is ideal for use in HIGH SPEED HD FLEXO environments including Expanded Color Gamut providing precise metering for all print types including high screen print. It has been proven to help prevent back doctoring and significantly lowers anilox wear and scoring. It is safe for use on high line count anilox at very high speeds.

Microstructure Matters

Compared to standard strip steel, the M-FLEX® PLUS 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.
