The NTR 154, a dedicated UV blanket built with a harder face on a softer carcass, represents the latest in rubber surface technology for unsurpassed performance with UV inks.
This newly developed EPDM blend surface resists the swelling and embossing that are common with UV. In conjunction with this new surface formulation, the NTR 154 has a special surface grind, to improve lay-down of ink, while still minimizing ink and solvent penetration of the rubber surface, while remaining easy to clean.
Cleaning and swelling of the blanket are the two main issues that decrease productivity in UV printing, and this is what led to the development of this product.
The carcass, built with the Novurania “Sinkless Technology” holds up very well to edge marking and cutting, thus further increasing the useable life of the blanket.
These are the reasons why the NTR 154 delivers clean, sharp and consistent dots for excellent print quality as well as dense and rich solids. The NTR 154 is particularly suitable for sheet fed commercial and packaging applications.
