BIRKAN Headliner

First class reference in coldset printing with conventional inks

BIRKAN Headliner represents the latest technological evolution: Its overall unique construction guarantees exceptional durability and best printing results. Especially the blanket’s ability to recover from severe over pressure situations means a considerable reduction of downtime costs.

The micro-ground surface layer gives excellent ink transfer and minimises linting on a wide variety of papers. Printers can also rely on the blanket‘s neutral feed characteristics.

The double micro sphere compressible layer – a unique feature – gives optimum contact in the printing nip and accommodates severe over pressure in a web break. The compressible layer‘s thickness guarantees furthermore very good smash resistance and edge marking.

A specially designed rubber fibre reinforced layer reduces gauge loss and eliminates any pull down at lock-up level.
