Manufactured by Novurania and converted by Servicom Pacific

The Publisher has been developed as a soft type, highly compressible web blanket, designed to reduce the ‘bouncing’ (gear-marking) problem inherent in certain types of web presses. The Publisher is eminently suitable for use on web press, coldset (type CS).

The reinforced carcase is manufactured from only the highest quality long staple cotton yarns, and the fabric plies are woven to rigorous specifications providing excellent mechanical properties. All plies are multi-calendered to ensure lowest sinking on the press. The back ply is sealed for enhanced protection against penetration of inks and damping solutions. The Publisher incorporates the latest closed cell compressible layer technology, with pressurized voids to improve speed of recovery and buffing of the compressible layer to reduce variations of compressibility. The face compound is designed for excellent compression set and rebound characteristics. The precision buffed surface finish provides improved gauge control and excellent ink transfer and sheet releasing properties.
