Printing Blankets

The products on this page are a listing of our primary printing blankets which have been developed specifically for the dry offset cup, tube and lid printing market.

We have many other blankets and adhesives available so we can tailor a package to meet your specific application requirements. We also test and develop new products on an ongoing basis in order to offer you the latest and best products for today's market.

New Developments!

January, 2003 - We have developed a new laminating process which improves the bond of the adhesive tapes to the blanket which eliminates product separation in all applications.

September, 2003 - We have a new blanket for high-speed sidewall printing which outlasts any product on the market today called Duratan.

Plastoprint

This blanket is constructed using a unique open cell polyurethane structure for true compressibility. Application of pressure is taken up by a reduction in void volume within the cell structure. This is particularly useful on irregularly shaped containers, inner ribbed products and tubs with inconsistent wall thickness. It is a proven blanket for cup and pail printers. It's white surface offers ease in set up, as most plate adjustments can be performed on the blanket.

Butyl HH

This blanket is manufactured with a butyl rubber compound for optimum resistance to most UV and IR printing inks. The rubber face is harder than the standard butyl with built in heat resistance offering improved wear characteristics at higher speeds with better ink release and print quality. This specially developed blanket will work well on most applications including lid printing. The blanket offers excellent solvent resistance, and is economical to use.

Shore Hardness : 80 Roll Width : 36" / 914 mm
Roll Lengths Vary Tolerance : .0005" / .01mm
Available in .067" Available in 1.7mm

DURATAN      "CURRENTLY BEING RE-DESIGNED"

This blanket is made from a combination of synthetic rubbers designed to withstand the punishment of high speed cup printing and is tinted a tan colour to help avoid hit marks on the cup. This blanket can be used through multiple job changes with minimal print deterioration. The resiliency of the blanket offers good return in case of a miss feed.

Shore Hardness : 82 Roll Width : 36" / 914mm
Roll Lengths Vary Tolerance : .0005" / .01mm
Available in .072" Available in 1.8mm

ULTRA-3

This blanket has a hard surface layer which is a blend of two synthetic rubbers  providing high solvent and UV ink resistance. The surface is ultra smooth to ensure sharp half tone and dot reproduction and superior release properties. The hard but highly resilient sub-face offers exceptional recovery from miss feeds. This blanket is especially suited to lid and medium speed sidewall printing.

Shore Hardness : 78 Roll Width : 36" / 914 mm
Roll Lengths Vary Tolerance : .0005" / .01mm
Available in .067" Available in 1.7mm

Orange UV

This UV resistant blanket is manufactured with a hard EPDM surface to offer excellent print quality as a lid blanket. The surface is ultra smooth to ensure sharp half tone and dot reproduction and superior release properties. The additional compressible layer will reduce damage to the face blanket in the event of a miss feed. The blanket is resistant to UV inks as well as offering good solvent resistance to most blanket washes.

Shore Hardness : 76 Roll Width: 36" / 914 mm
Roll Lengths Vary Tolerance : .005" / .01mm
Available in .067" Available in 1.7mm

Underlay

This blanket is manufactured using a blend of rubber compounds to offer good durability as an underlay blanket. They are produced using the same process as the face blankets to ensure accurate and consistent thickness control. The cotton blend fabric layer provides additional compressibility to reduce damage to the face blanket in the event of a miss feed. The blanket has a hard surface layer offering good solvent resistance to most common blanket washes.

Shore Hardness : 77

Roll Width : 36" / 914 mm

Roll Lengths Vary

Tolerance : .0005" / .01mm

Available in .040 & .067"

Uvacure Series Inks plastic cup printing decorating

When properly cured, these inks will exhibit excellent adhesion, as well as superior resistance to food and chemical products typically packaged in poly containers. When stored in a cool environment, the inks, excluding metallics, are expected to have a minimum shelf life of 6 months from the date of manufacture.

uvlamps

Though expensive, quartz has the property of high transparency to Ultraviolet light, particularly at the short wave end of the spectrum where over 90% of the UV energy generated is transmitted through the quartz. The rate of decline depends on a number of factors; the switching frequency of the lamp, lamp and electrode cooling efficiency, accurately matched power control, and the cleanliness of the lamp surface.
