BIRKAN Amaranth 1.70
Premium blanket for continuous or webfed printing
Amaranth was developed in a thickness of 1.70 mm for webfed offset printing. (In thickness 1.96 mm it is also excellently suited for high-speed sheet-fed printing.) In the 1.70 mm thick version offered here, we recommend this blanket for continuous printing applications because it offers the following advantages thanks to its special features and properties:
An optimised pore structure has been incorporated into the compressible layer which is now composed of two parts, one of them being directly under the rubber surface. This not only guarantees a longer service life, but also an optimised behaviour with regard to the suppression of vibration stripes caused by the channel impact.
The micro ground surface provides clean dot reproduction and optimum ink transfer. Its special finish makes it particularly resistant and ensures not only excellent sheet release but also minimised paper dust and ink build-up and correspondingly reduced washing intervals. At the same time, web flutter is minimised.
