An underpacking blanket which improves your rubber blanket's performance

BIRKAN BK/PO is manufactured to the same process as other top blankets: Only high quality materials, such as pre-stretched, pre-calendered cotton fabrics, are used. The precisely buffed surface ensures consistent thickness all over the blanket. Furthermore, it is composed of a carefully chosen blend of nitrile polymers, thus providing enhanced restistance to solvents and damping solutions.

Due to the all cotton carcass, dimensional stability is excellent, and the pre-calendered fabrics minimize sinking on the press. BIRKAN BK/PO's slightly compressible construction increases the rubber blanket‘s durabilty by reinforcing its smash resistance.

BIRKAN BK/PO is available in different gauges in order to offer the right underpacking thickness – the most valuable prevention of plate wear – for most cylinder undercuts
