Optimum performance and life on a variety of presses & paper combinations.
dayGraphica® 3610 is one of the most durable, flexible and versatile blankets available from Flint Group. This blanket handles a broad range of printing requirements and keeps on going; whatever the age of your press.
In sheetfed applications the dayGraphica® 3610 produces high quality work on a wide range of substrates from heavy coated stocks to lightweight SC papers in the commercial field, through to foil board, recycled and all the various fluted stocks now available in the packaging field. In fact, dayGraphica® 3610 is the blanket of choice for all large format sheetfed presses.
dayGraphica® 3610 has a ground surface finish, providing uniform gauge and a profile compatible with all of today’s pressroom chemistry. Longer life is ensured through its high density carcass and the optimised compressible layer allows for the smooth, even tones and solids required for printing on fluted packaging stocks.
Excellent print performance for all paper types and qualities
Durability. That's the mission for the dayGraphica® 5300 blanket. Built on DuraZone compressible layer technology, dayGraphica® 5300 absorbs and minimizes damage from web breaks and smashes. dayGraphica® 5300 also delivers consistent print pressure for better print quality readings.
The dense carcass design significantly reduces gauge loss during installation and throughout the life of the blanket.
Wash and fount penetration to the back of the blanket is minimised by use of specially treated fabrics, reducing swelling and promoting better register control on wide format jobs.
dayGraphica® 5700 Infinity is specially constructed using DuraZone technology – the precise blending of rubber compounds with closed cell compressible layer technology within a unique manufacturing process. The result is a compressible layer designed to work consistently at high speed to deliver consistent print pressure across all press widths and targeted web feed characteristics to equalise web tension between units and reduce stress on lighter weight stocks. As well as providing trouble free running, reduction of web feed differential between units helps control power consumption and can extend plate life.
Higher press speeds and longer blanket life expectations are normal requirements in today’s carton printing industry. In the past, the use of UV drying inks and a wide range of UV wash solvents from a variety of manufacturers has shortened blanket life due to swelling or embossing of the image areas. As a result, blanket changes and more critically, press downtime costs, make an already competitive business an even more difficult environment.
Our technical experts have developed a new surface compound to resist the swelling effects of UV inks, whilst maintaining the capability to produce high quality print on a variety of substrates. With many printers running both UV and conventional ink systems, versatility was prescribed as an essential part of the development brief. The final surface compound will also give outstanding performance on conventional ink and wash systems, eliminating the need to use two different blanket types.
