MICROKOTE® II

Ink repelling coating eliminates particle collection behind doctor blade. 

SWED/CUT MICROKOTE® II Doctor Blade

MICROKOTE® II is our most popular ink repellent coating with the highest corrosion resistance of our alloyed based steel to achieve an amazing result in specialized coatings and ink applications. Significant defect reduction is reported when running UV, vinyl inks, or harsh coatings – 300% increase in life is also reported. The MICROKOTE® II achieves great results for rotogravure and coating applications. It precisely meters for overall coatings and fine screens. You can expect superior results for flexible packaging, shrink sleeves, pharmaceutical packaging, tobacco, specialty inks, tints, and coatings.

Microstructure Matters

Compared to standard strip steel, the MICROKOTE® II 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 cylinders, and allows you to run your blades longer.
