TruPoint ProFlex withstands Aggressive Inks & Coatings
The durable, stiff plastic of the ProFlex doctor blade has great chemical resistance, good dimensional stability and low coefficient of friction. These properties in combination produce a doctor blade that withstands abrasive inks and coatings.
The Superior Blade Life of ProFlex
TruPoint polymer and plastic doctor blades are generally known to outlast traditional steel doctor blades, due to the natural durability of plastic. The chemical resistance of the material combined with the added Teflon for increased stiffness contribute to the ProFlex doctor blade’s superior blade life.
TruPoint ProFlex Eliminates Anilox Scoring
A costly concern with using steel doctor blades is the potential for anilox roll scoring and anilox wear. Compared to steel, TruPoint doctor blades do not crack or splinter, causing roll scoring. While the material is stiff and durable, TruPoint ProFlex will not damage or wear down the anilox roll or cause particles within your ink.
