BIRKAN S.C. 800 ground

A genuine allrounder

Few blankets offer such a broad application range: BIRKAN S.C. 800 ground is being used successfully in a variety of offset applications.

"S.C." stands for "Super Compressible": A thick microsphere compressible layer allows good smash recovery and increases the blanket‘s durability.

The robust carcass construction allows little risk of delamination or cracking at the cylinder bevel. Its all-cotton fabrics minimize stretch and ensure the stability of the blanket, which results in good sheet register and absence of dot doubling.

The micro ground surface, a special blend of nitrile and polysulphide rubbers, is designed to give excellent ink transfer and sharp half tones over a wide range of printing pressures. It resists most UV drying inks and washes and offers also very good paper release properties (QR effect).

BIRKAN S. C. 800 is compatible with a wide range of paper weights.
