Specialized coating for longer life. 

SWED/CUT H7® Doctor Blade

Highly Specialized Coating For Longer Life

H7® introduces a totally new and innovative technologically enhanced coating for extreme wear resistance without extreme hardness. It is combined with our high-density carbon steel doctor blade material for superior performance in the most demanding print and coating applications. H7® achieves great results for applications in rotogravure print and coating, lab tech applications, an other challenging situations. It precisely meters for overall coatings and fine screens. You can expect superior results for specialty tints, vignettes, coatings, and laminations.

Microstructure Matters

Compared to standard strip steel, the H7® 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.
