Calibrated Press Boards

Essential underpacking for banknote printing

Press board is a special product on the basis of the purest wood cellulose fibres. Without additional binding agents, these are made up into a fibrous web and then pressed.

Evenness with minimum thickness tolerance is achieved during a long calibration process.

The excellent mechanical strength and consistent quality of this underpacking guarantee very high durabilty in Intaglio presses. Several different press board types are available for banknote printing.
