BIRKAN Aeropress UV violet

A new alternative for UV offset printing

This blanket is a welcome addition to the Aeropress Special family: Its improved compressible layer and a newly featured surface rubber compound makes it the ideal blanket not only for UV, but also for hybrid ink applications.

Due to the additives used in the EPDM surface layer, BIRKAN Aeropress Special UV violet is extremely swell-resistant to UV inks and UV washing solutions. At the same time, this particular surface compound assists ink transfer and prevents piling, thus reducing blanket washing frequency. Durability and robustness are also sensibly increased due to two highly compressible intermediate layers incorporating a new pore system.

The extremely fine ground surface structure ensures excellent printing results as well for halftone print as for solid print, whatever your paper type or thickness is, as well as a very good paper release (QR effect). This is why this blanket is recommended for the most diverse special printing applications.
