Which Doctor Blade is right for you?

All doctor blades are not created equal, and the same doctor blade material can perform differently depending on application variables like speed, surface roughness, ink or coating abrasiveness, or the surface being cleaned. To help find the right product in our portfolio we’ve created a rating system (1-5) for different performance characteristics including stiffness, creep, metering, and wear.

These ratings are guidelines and performance will vary based on operating conditions, but they do serve as a guide to give you a relative comparison across products.

One way to make a stiff doctor blade is to make it thick. We pride ourselves on offering several thin, stiff doctor blades. A rating of 5 in this category means very stiff, which typically translates into excellent sheering action from the blade. The rankings below were calculated based on stiffness after running on a press for 1 hour.

Creep is the tendency of a material to bend or deform permanently under mechanical load.  A high creep rating means the degree of “spring” or contact pressure from the blade doesn’t diminish significantly over time, leading to sustained high quality metering. The tendency to creep can be impacted by the thickness of the material. 

The ability to control the quantity and uniformity of fluid (ink & coatings) transferred. The higher the rating, the more effective the blade is at ensuring a clean, consistent, and precise transfer takes place. 

Application conditions dramatically impact wear or the “durability of any doctor blade material.  Many materials have high wear rates, buy only premium products are able to combine high wear and high quality metering.
