Flint Group Blanket Is for UV Offset Printing


PLYMOUTH, MI | Flint Group announces dayGraphica 4100 UV Red, a UV blanket technology said to offer offset printers better blanket performance, longer life, and greater versatility.

Company says the product works with a wide variety of UV inks and washes and is ideal for packaging printers looking for improved solid reproduction and a more durable UV blanket, especially when running heavy-gauge stocks.

Bill Branson, Flint Group’s Business Director–North American Blankets, credits the company’s technology team for addressing two major challenges facing UV printers: blanket swell and durability. “The team was able to reduce swelling with a unique rubber formulation and increase durability by developing a compressible carcass that can better withstand the pressures and damaging effects of smashes.”

Branson says the product is designed specifically for a dedicated UV ink and wash environment, and in that setting, printers experience superior ink transfer without embossing on coated and uncoated stocks, less edge cutting from heavy stocks, and faster sheet and web release.
