Finito® is a new type of packing foil consisting of a polyester carrier with a special TPU coating. The foil's properties have a positive effect on print quality and blanket life. Due to its high resistance to chemicals and mechanical resilience, Finito® is a cost-effective alternative to conventional packing materials. The thickness and size of Finito® foils are adapted to the individual press models.
While blankets used to be the standard packing material of the past, today they are rarely used underneath the printing blanket. Unlike cardboard or foil packing, these blankets produce a "softer" cylinder packing.
We offer the following blanket: DV black, thickness 1.00 mm, available up to 1480 mm width.
A special calibration method produces very hard cardboard, ensuring high print quality and low dot gain. The cardboard is waterproofed to prevent the penetration of moisture that would lead to undesired swelling. An "anti-slip coating" keeps the cardboard from sliding on the cylinder.
Standard foils are made of polyester and designed to be used on the plate or blanket cylinder. The dimensional stability of these foils, their resistance to printing chemicals and their long service life are important advantages compared to conventional cardboard packing. The foils are available in different versions, including self-adhesive.
