BIRKAN UV Compressible EPDM
Swell resistant EPDM surface for UV printing
UV curing inks require specific blankets with increased resistance to chemical attack and swelling.
The micro ground EPDM surface of BIRKAN UV Compressible EPDM does not absorb UV inks and, what is more, guarantees excellent ink transfer and sharp dot reproduction. It also reduces ink and paper dust piling and gives very good sheet release in a wide range of materials.
The thick micro sphere compressible layer provides smash resistance and blanket durability. A stabilising fabric between the surface and the compressible layer as well as the dense low stretch fabric ensure extra robustness and stability to the blanket.
