Newark, NJ, June 20, 2002 - For customers looking for the optimum high-speed newspaper and cold-set No-Pack printing blanket, the search is now over. The Priscolith Conti- Air Evolution No-Pack is now available from Prisco (Printers' Service).
With certain press configurations, tension on the paper web can produce a condition of either over-feed or under-feed. This causes difficulty in web control and a constant battle to prevent web breaks and fan-out and interferes with the ability to produce a quality product on time. In the past, blankets with negative feed characteristics or positive feed characteristics have been used to try to control this condition.
The Evolution No-Pack is unique in that it employs the "True Rolling" concept A special blanket carcass and the patented compressible layer used in its construction contribute to unmatched paper control without over-feeding. The Evolution No-Pack may be used on ALL press units. There is no need for multiple blanket types, each with different feed characteristics. Measured tension on the paper web is significantly less when Evolution is used versus competitive blankets. This translates to fewer web breaks and a corresponding significant productivity increase.
High press speeds are achieved with quick and smooth paper release. Register and paper tensioning on shaftless presses are no problem with Evolution No-Pack.
The Evolution No-Pack blanket features a ground surface for excellent ink transfer of both screens and solids. The Evolution offers excellent smash resistance. This is due to a high degree of extremely uniform compressibility with precise rebound elasticity because of positive pressure in closed micro-pore cells as well as extremely strong fabric plies in the carcass. The Evolution No-Pack has longevity unmatched by any other blanket, making it the most economical choice for any operation. This blanket is available in .081, 083, 086 thickness.
