PrintguardPlus and PrintGuard
Packaging = Orange
Hide + Compressible Backings
A cross linked orange silicone coating reduces the surface energy of the PrintGuard glass beaded surface. This means that ink does not want to stick to the Orange Hide surface. Less ink attraction = less marking = more profit. We apply 2X as much silicone as our competition.
OUR PATENTED Compressible backing provides a compressible layer that ensures the surface of the glass beads lay perfectly flat and uniform across your entire cylinder – no more bubbles, ridges or voids that can cause marking! And, in most cases, no additional packing is required.
Durable elastic loops resistant to oils and solvents. They stretch just the right amount to allow for quick and easy attachment to your Heidelberg transfer/delivery cylinder. For SM-52, SM-74 and SM-102 (post 1993), our patent pending Secure-Safe™ stainless steel hardware with brass rivets are affixed to one or both jacket ends for a custom cylinder fit. Our Secure-Safe™ double fixturing method ensures the jacket is safely secured to your transfer cylinder.
Our Glass bead film is designed and manufactured with a Triple Coated, Cross-linked ink-repellent Silicone Coating that ensures mark-free printing, is long lasting and easy to clean when required. Offered in both large and small glass bead matrix to support small and large format press models. PrintGuard Glass Bead Film is specifically designed for Komori, Mitsubishi, Akiyama, Shinohara, Sakurai and other Japanese press models and offered in Premium Orange Hide ® and Regular® both non-adhesive and adhesive backed versions.
