MDC Gamutstar is a new coated quality provided with a durable base coating designed to extend blade life, reduce anilox scoring, while providing corrosion protection and a very clean wipe. This is specifically suited when blade changes need to be predetermined such as it is the case with Extended Colour Gamut. In addition, this allows the blades changes to occur at specific times, eliminating unnecessary downtime. Especially designed for long print runs and multiple jobs, Gamutstar is available with radius or lamella type tips, in widths of 10 – 60 mm (0.4” – 2.4”) and thicknesses of 0,15 mm (0.006”), 0.2 (0.008”) and 0.25 mm (0.01”).
MDC Pearlstar is a blade provided with a new proprietary ink repelling coating. This significantly contributes to the reduction of build-up of inks, varnishes, cold seal adhesives and other transfer media onto the doctor blade. Such a performance enhancing measure results in considerably fewer drag outs and streaks in the printed image and also offers corrosion protection, This repelling property added together with low friction values make it ideal for customers experiencing back doctoring issues. Perlstar is available in widths of 10 – 60 mm (0.4” – 2.4”) and thicknesses of 0.15 mm (0,006”), 0.2 mm (0.008”) and 0.25 mm (0.01”)
The MDC Anilox Cleaner is a deep cleaner for all chrome and ceramic rollers. The detergent is suitable for solvent/water-based based and UV curable inks and removes even stubborn soiling caused by inks and lacquers.
