While regular white blades might be the standard, White Plus metal blades stand out from the crowd thanks to their unique properties. Made from a white carbon steel material, these blades feature a precision low-friction metallic coating that is perfect for handling difficult Flexo and Gravure doctoring applications.
The CXP4 blades work their best when they are running chrome gravure cylinders with minimal engraving. This is because the state-of-the-art coating helps to provide lubrication between the cylinder and the blade itself. This reduces issues with hazing and streaking. This impressive coating also provides corrosion resistance when you use it with water-based inks.
Available in 8 mil thickness with a Superhoned Plus bevel, there are many reasons why you can rely on White Plus metal doctor blades when it comes to getting your job done. This is a beveled edge shape with a nominal 2.2-degree bevel angle. This shape allows for the same force control features as the regular Superhoned shape, but with even less tip growth as the blade wears down.
However, it is essential to note that it is not recommended to use them in Flexo containment applications. Contact our business today to inquire about these excellent products.
