The Challenge from the print trade for rubber rollers is to address the ever more specific performance demands coming from the print industry.
Run Faster, Run Hotter, Start Colder; Reduce Swelling, Shrinkage & Hardness Change , Improve Damper Wetting, whilst retaining Quality , Cost Effectiveness, Safety and Environmental Compliance, Repeatability etc has led our development project aimed at raising performance levels in the areas most relevant to high quality, competitive printing.
We have brought together a group of compounds and formulations developed individually to address each issue and combined many to improve upon existing performance
The PRS range has been tested throughout its development in standard print conditions in a variety of machines and applications
Rollers manufactured from PRS and sold commercially have been in print machines for up to 2 years.
Today’s printing rollers must operate in a range of chemical environments. These can cause the rollers to change size, requiring production stops to to reset the press. The PRS series is designed to eliminate this problem by quickly reaching a dynamic equilibrium between the roller and its environment with minimal chemical exchange.
The PRS series compounds are suitable for the fastest web fed processes. They have high dynamic resilience. this means that during the print run, hysterisis loss in the rubber is minimised and less stored energy is converted into heat. The roller will therefore run cooler than less resilient rollers.
PRS Offers a range of compounds that are suitable for rubber rollers in any position in any machine
PRS Performance matches that of any original equipment
