TruPoint UHMW Doctor Blade
The Original Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene Doctor Blade
TruPoint UHMW Doctor Blade Features
TruPoint UHMW offers Superior Blade Life
TruPoint plastic and polymer doctor blades are generally known to outlast traditional steel doctor blades, due to the natural durability of plastic. The TruPoint UHMW doctor blade material has a dense molecular structure that is thick, soft and abrasion-resistant which gives the doctor blade extremely long blade life.
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.
