TruPoint Keon can take the Heat
The TruPoint Keon doctor blade is specially formulated to withstand high temperatures as well as abrasive inks, coatings and other chemicals. The Keon doctor blade is a premium solution that is extremely wear-resistant and holds it’s shape and metering abilities in the toughest of applications.
TruPoint Keon Meters like Steel
The TruPoint Keon doctor blade combines the stiffness and thinness of steel with the long blade life of plastic. TruPoint Keon maintains a fine contact area with the anilox roll, effectively metering high anilox line screens and producing precise ink and coating lay down.
TruPoint Keon will not Damage the Anilox Roll
A costly concern with using steel doctor blades is the potential for anilox roll scoring. Compared to steel, TruPoint Keon does not crack or splinter which can cause roll scoring. The material, although stiff and durable, will not damage the anilox roll or create particles within your ink.
