Trelleborg Focuses on Packaging Printing with Dedicated Guide and Two New Blanket Solutions

Selecting the optimal blanket solution for any packaging application is now quicker and easier than ever before, thanks to Trelleborg’s new Packaging Guide for its innovative Rollin and Vulcan range of printing blankets.

The new brochure, available to download via the Trelleborg website, features all of the company’s innovative printing solutions specifically designed for use in the packaging industry, including two new coating solutions.

Thomas Linkenheil, President of Trelleborg Printing Solutions, commented: “The package printing industry is extremely fast-paced, varied and demanding, and as such, the industry needs high performance products that can be relied upon to not only stand the test of time, but to continue to provide an exceptional finish.

“All of our innovative packaging printing solutions are designed to be durable, while still producing quality dot reproduction in high-impact packaging printing. We developed our new guide to showcase our strong capabilities and extensive packaging product line within the packaging market.

“In addition, we have extended our range of solutions to include two new coating products, both of which will appear in the new guide. The new Rollin MyCoat and Rollin HiCoat have been purposely developed with the wants and needs of the packaging printer front of mind and to always assure the highest productivity and coating quality.”

Trelleborg’s new Rollin MyCoat, a 2-ply mylar based strippable coating blanket, features a specialist construction which makes stripping very easy; the innovative compressible layer of the blanket strips down to the blue layer allowing the end-user to see if knock outs are correct and precise. Available in three thicknesses, 1.96mm, 1.35mm and 1.15mm, the specially designed top rubber compound of the blanket also makes it suitable for use with both aqueous and UV coating applications.

The new Rollin HiCoat from Trelleborg is a compressible strippable coating plate with a polyester carrier, and has been designed for both aqueous and UV-varnish transfer. Specfically developed for use in volume sheetfed press packaging and commercial applications, HiCoat is ideal for spreading varnish on printed paper.
