BIRKAN Dot-Master N.D.

Improved QR effect for high speed presses

BIRKAN Dot-Master N.D. ("New Development") is the result of latest production technology. It has been designed especially for high speed presses where a good QR effect is essential.

Due to a special surface finish, sheet release is excellent. A very fine micro ground surface compound provides exceptional print quality, outstanding edge cut resistance and cleanest dot reproduction. Exceptional ink transfer enables printing with a low ink film weight. Solid coverage is superior accross a variety of papers, boards and printing pressures.

The micro sphere compressible layer gives excellent smash resistance and high durability.

Outstanding surface properties are favourable to easy removal of calcium deposits and effortless cleaning of paper edge debris.
