STRIPPABLE RUBBER PLATE FOR WATER BASED AND UV COATINGS
VARNIBLUE 115 is available in standard gauge 1.15mm. The stencil depth is 0.80mm.
VARNIBLUE 115 is a coating plate in light blue colour that has been designed to provide printers with an excellent reusable product suitable for water based and UV coatings. VARNIBLUE 115 is made with a rubber top coating surface, a second elastomeric layer and a polyester carrier sheet and to obtain the best results is used with VARNICOMP SR compressible underblanket.
The top coating surface provides many of the benefits of a photopolymer coating plate but is much more robust in terms of handling and storage.
The two upper layers have a strong chemicals and mechanical resistance and an easy cut and peel.
The polyester carrier sheet provides a very high level of dimensional stability which helps to achieve close register even after several repeat applications whilst the specialised underblanket provides a uniform level of compressibility to help provide a consistent film of coating.
Combination of VARNIBLUE plate and underblanket suits each individual press manufacturers cylinder undercut. The VARNICOMP SR adhesive compressible layer is fixed on the plate cylinder for several months (6-12 months).
VARNIBLUE 115 is specifically designed for Water Based coatings, can either be hand cut or CAD cut and can easily be fitted with standard mounting bars, making this a highly versatile system. The compressible underblanket is supplied with either a non-adhesive or self-adhesive backing to give the option of it being permanently mounted.
