Blankets

The blanket is a key consumable, an intermediary between the image on the plate and the ink on the paper. Blanket performance is critical to finished results and they have to be able to perform well in an increasingly demanding environment. Presses have become faster and there is an increasing range of chemistry used, including new alternatives to alcohol. Inks, too, can affect the choice of blanket. Printers must choose the right surface texture and blanket performance for the results they want, the adoption of compressible layers in blankets has helped reduce smashes.
