SWED/CUT

MICRONOX® I

Smaller and less threatening wear debris with improved structure.

SWED/CUT MICRONOX® I Doctor Blade

The MICRONOX® I doctor blade is a micro-refined stainless steel blade that allows for excellent corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and uniform edge wear, while also exhibiting a high tolerance for high or low pH and other chemicals. Its stainless steel construction and compact micro-structure wears evenly in both flexographic and  gravure applications while not harming the anilox or cylinder.

MICROSTRUCTURE MATTERS

Compared to standard strip steel, the MICRONOX® 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.
