  • POLYESTER SQUEEGEE
    Often times there are advantages to using a Polyester Squeegee Blade over the more conventional Stainless Steel Squeegee. Most notably, the Polyester Squeegee will not pit, rust, corrode, or delaminate. The Polyester blade will reduce the wear on rolls and screens by virtue of the fact that the squeegee is softer and more flexible than stainless. This allows the polyester blade to be run with less pressure minimizing the friction and thus, the wear that occurs. Polyester Squeegee is also compatible with the majority of solvents, coatings, lacquers, varnishes, water, and alcohol based inks commonly used in flexographic, gravure, and Rotary Screen Printing. (Please see the accompanying list.)

    The general blade sizes used in Rotary Screen Printing are as follows: 40mm x 0.61mm, 40mm x 0.39mm, 4mm x 0.50mm, 55mm x 0.61mm, and 55mm x 1.00mm. (Other sizes and samples are available upon request.)

    These sizes have evolved as the most popular as squeegee blades typically are used in a "trailing" technique at approximately a 65 angle to the roll or screen.
    This technique involves a scraping action that forms a wedge of ink in the angle between the squeegee and the screen or roller surface. It is at this angle
    that solid particles can become trapped, causing damage to both the screen and squeegee. For this reason, a high standard of ink filtration and cleanliness is
    essential when using either the Polyester or Stainless Squeegee.
