Why You Should Use the PlateKote Surface Agent

You might find yourself at a loss when it comes to trying to find effective press cleaners that meet your needs. One to consider is the PlateKote surface agent. Many people have found that this specially reformulated surface agent is great at effectively controlling the characteristics of elastomers.

All you need to do is apply the spray evenly across the printing surface and allow it to sit for five minutes. Then, just rinse it away with clean water and wipe or scrub the surface as needed using a recommended plate cleaning solution. It is that simple to start seeing the impressive benefits that come with using such a fantastic surface agent.

The reasons to use PlateKote don’t stop there either. This is an environmentally-friendly product that is safe and convenient to use, manufactured right here in the United States of America, and capable of working with all inks. Not only that, but this surface agent has shown itself to be excellent at preventing fill-ins and build-up while also prolonging the life of your plates.

Make sure you are doing what you can to maintain your press plates by using cleaners that have proven themselves time after time.

Using White Plus Metal Doctor Blades

While regular white blades might be the standard, White Plus metal blades stand out from the crowd thanks to their unique properties. Made from a white carbon steel material, these blades feature a precision low-friction metallic coating that is perfect for handling difficult Flexo and Gravure doctoring applications.

The CXP4 blades work their best when they are running chrome gravure cylinders with minimal engraving. This is because the state-of-the-art coating helps to provide lubrication between the cylinder and the blade itself. This reduces issues with hazing and streaking. This impressive coating also provides corrosion resistance when you use it with water-based inks.

Available in 8 mil thickness with a Superhoned Plus bevel, there are many reasons why you can rely on White Plus metal doctor blades when it comes to getting your job done. This is a beveled edge shape with a nominal 2.2-degree bevel angle. This shape allows for the same force control features as the regular Superhoned shape, but with even less tip growth as the blade wears down.

However, it is essential to note that it is not recommended to use them in Flexo containment applications. Contact our business today to inquire about these excellent products.
