BIRKAN Superflex Plus

Extremely compressible blanket for uneven or demanding substrates

BIRKAN Superflex Plus is characterized by a 2-ply construction, and an extremely high compressibility. These particular features are highly valuable especially in carton printing applications: BIRKAN Superflex PLUS is recommended for use with all grades of micro-fluted corrugated board and thick carton, as well as for printing on envelopes, structurized or uncoated paper.

A newly developed extremely compressible layer allows for the blanket to follow the contours of the substrate, resulting in exceptional print quality, and eliminates flute shadow.

The sharp dot reproduction is the result of the specially formulated micro ground surface, the layer being compatible with UV and conventional inks.

The combination of strong carcass technology and a reinforced compressible layer gives excellent smash resistance and a prolonged blanket life.
