Eliminate common print defects like streaks, fog, and haze. 

SWED/CUT MICROKOTE® X Doctor Blade

The MICROKOTE® X doctor blade offers the finest wiping in the rotogravure industry. This powerhouse doctor blade consists of a patented coating that provides extended life for both the blade and the cylinder. It is a multifaceted doctor blade that repels ink, eliminates damaging particulate matter, and resists the formation of slivers to limit defects like streaks, haze, fog, and cylinder damage.

MICROSTRUCTURE MATTERS

Compared to standard strip steel, the MICROKOTE® X 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.
