Grand Canyon

The optimum Blanket for Spot Coating

  • Suitable for UV- and aqueous varnishes
  • Excellent varnish transfer
  • Optimized surface for varnishing application
  • For spot and full-surface coating
  • New! 4-ply carcass to continious use

Application and description

There is an increasing trend towards the use of varnishing blankets on sheet-fed presses.

For this application we have developed Grand Canyon, a blanket that meets all requirements for spot and full-surface coating.

The compressible layer guarantees easy, perfect cutting – whether this is done manually or using a plotter. The specially developed 4-ply carcass guar antees the continious use of Grand Canyon.

Equally suitable for UV- and aqueous varnishes through a newly developed face compound. Guarantees perfect gloss in both applications.

Grand Canyon guarantees the user a stencil depth of ≥ 0,7 mm.
