Alessandra Bungaro, Communications Manager at Trelleborg’s printing solutions operation states: “At Trelleborg we have fifty years of experience of offset blankets and their impact on press performance. We will have samples of our Vulcan Mytho, the only rubber, neutral-feed, for heat-set applications and Vulcan Folio, the well-known blanket for sheet-fed presses. Both solutions have a history of being successfully used for printing a huge range of products, from books and catalogues to commercial leaflets and magazines.
“We look forward to showcasing our range of unique customer solutions for offset printing applications, from the historical blankets as such Vulcan Mytho and Vulcan Folio to the recently introduced Vulcan Sunrise, the innovative solutions when low energy inks are used”
Paul White, Marketing and Business Development Manager at Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation in Retford states: “We are especially excited to be exhibiting this year as we will be celebrating our 60-year anniversary of manufacturing products made of Vulkollan®, which is a high performing elastomer polyurethane material used in our Unitex® squeegee range.
“We have exhibited at FESPA for many years as it provides a fantastic platform to demonstrate to attendees how our Unitex® range can improve screen printing processes by providing excellent print quality and accuracy, decreasing setup times and extending print runs and prolonging squeegee life.”
Vulcan Sunrise is a 1.96 mm blanket with a dedicated top compound and is specifically designed by Trelleborg for UV applications such as LE/HUV and LED UV.
