SWED/CUT

MICRONOX® II

Improved ink metering with fewer print defects and customer complaints. 

SWED/CUT MICRONOX® II Doctor Blade

MICRONOX® II is our enhanced corrosion resistant alloyed chemistry blade material ideal for more wear resistance in situations with longer running printing and coating applications. It consistently and precisely meters white inks and other coarse structured inks and coatings.

MICRONOX® II is ideal for precise metering of abrasive water and solvent based inks in longer runs requiring precise metering for solids, line work, screens, vignettes, general process printing on envelope, carton, wide web flexible, kraft bags, hot and cold sealing, adhesives, and litho-offset varnish.

Microstructure Matters

Compared to standard strip steel, the MICRONOX® 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 anilox rolls or cylinders, and allows you to run your blades longer.
