Watts Ora Launches Moulded Squeegees at SGIA Vegas
After development started in 2015 and investment in a controlled production facility, the 5 profile range in 8 hardness is available to view on stand 3891.
“Our material systems for our cut edge product are already very well regarded around the world for their high performance. With repeated requests from clients, we have decided to bring the benefits and expertise of our materials to moulded blades to create world class products” comments Anthony Cooper CEO.
Large moulded squeegee blade range for specific applications
- High solvent, chemical and abrasion resistance.
- Improved performance from a sealed blade.
- Longer operating life through increased durability.
The core range of moulded blades is for 3 profiles, the G3, G1 with sharp edges and G1 with radial edges. This is available in eight shore hardness from 60 to 95. All are produced in a suitable MDI material for the specific application. The two sizes of blade being shown in Vegas are the 25x5mm and the 50×9.5mm.
Clean Room Production
Quality is critical to the performance of moulded blades. Watts have made significant investment to manufacture their moulded blades in 4m moulds in a dedicated clean room. This controlled environment :
- prevents inclusions,
- controls the occurrence of air bubbles and
- ensures the consistent quality of the product regardless of the length ultimately used.
The clean room is undergoing commissioning for full production manufacture to provide the consistency and volumes needed for the electronic/PCB ; solar/pv; CD/DVD; ceramic; glass; bottle; industrial; decal ; textile; and graphic applications where moulded blades are used.
To arrange a trial of our leading edge moulded blades please contact Will Barker, Sales Director by email to receive a sample and to discuss your particular needs.
