Anilox roll scoring

TruPoint UHMW does not Damage the Anilox Roll

A costly concern with using steel doctor blades is the potential for anilox roll scoring. Compared to steel, TruPoint UHMW does not crack or splinter, causing roll scoring or premature wear. The material, although durable, is soft and will not damage the anilox roll or cause particles within your ink.
