Nanotechnology-Enhanced Doctor Blades
Nanotechnology, in terms of doctor blade materials, is the inclusion of micro particulate materials into the resin matrix. The nanotechnology-enhanced resin provides a more homogenous structure than can be achieved by conventional filler particles alone, with the composite resin matrix being manipulated on a molecular scale to produce high-performing, wear resistant doctor blades.
A doctor blade will only effectively clean the roll surface as long as its leading edge remains strong enough. The nanotechnology-enhanced resin matrix is engineered to increase the longevity of the blade and its leading edge. Longer life translates directly to fewer blade changes and lower operating costs while maintaining the cleaning function necessary for machine efficiency. Each nanotechnology-enhanced doctor blade is designed for rolls where the removal of contaminants is particularly challenging and extended blade life is required.
Nanotechnology-Enhanced doctor blades are offered under the following trade names: nPak™, nDure™, nTek™, and nClean™.
