Varnicomp Plus Underblanket
Kruse Varnicomp Plus is a compressible underpacking designed specifically for use with new generation strippable coating plates.
During the coating application, it is very important that the printing pressure is kept as low as possible. Without the compressible layer the pressure can often become too high meaning the coating transfer quality is affected. The uniquely designed structure of Varnicomp Plus prevents this from happening, helping you to get the best out of your coating plates.
