Trelleborg Showcases Flagship Screen Printing Squeegees at Glasstec 2016

Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation will be exhibiting at the Glasstec trade show for the first time in Düsseldorf, Germany, promoting its Unitex® squeegees for screen printing onto glass. Located on stand 12D69, the operation will present a number of advancements across its squeegee portfolio, specifically its flagship squeegee Unitex® Ulon HP and the entire Unitex® Composite range.

Paul Habberfield, Sales Manager within Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation commented: “This is our first time at this event and we think it’s an ideal platform to promote our Unitex® squeegee range. Screen printing onto glass is acknowledged as one of the most demanding applications out there. Since glass is a challenging substrate, printing definition requirements are high and the potential cost of scrap is a constant challenge.

“We look forward to demonstrating Unitex® Ulon HP Composite, which was specifically developed for glass printing. It has a high durometer body to prevent the increased printing pressures often required from deforming the squeegee. The softer, high wearing tip allows for greater print accuracy and fine control of print deposits.”

Unitex® squeegees are typically used for automotive, appliance and architectural glass printing applications. Commonly used in the glass industry in flat-bed, cylinder and rotary screen printing processes, Unitex® squeegees have a reputation for being one of the best performing squeegees available on the market. The Unitex® squeegee blade provides a clear advantage when it comes to screen printing onto glass by ensuring excellent repeatable quality, extended print runs and outstanding durability.

Glasstec is the world's leading trade fair for the glass industry, mechanical engineering and glass craftsmanship. Exhibitors from all over the world will be presenting the latest developments from the entire world of glass and demonstrating the fact that glass is not just flat but that it has almost limitless dimensions.
