Highly specialized coating for longer life.

SWED/CUT H9® | Performance Class Doctor Blades

H9® 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. H9® achieves great results for applications in rotogravure print and coating, lab tech applications, and other challenging situations. It precisely meters for overall coatings and fine screens. You can expect superior results for specialty tints, vignettes, coatings, and laminations.

Available Blade Edge Profiles

The H9® doctor blade is available in the following blade edge profiles.

Microstructure Matters

The H9® combines corrosion resistant micro-refined chemistry with physical dimension and extended bevel to combat UV spitting and other similar print defects. It is a top performer for long running printing and coating applications requiring consistent and precise metering.

Compared to standard strip steel, the H9® 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, and allows you to run your blades longer.
