Rotometal has developed a new method for hardening printing cylinders: ANTIFRICTION. It is a breakthrough solution that optimizes the friction properties and smoothness of the coating thanks to the use of the Polimeroxid®matrix, which is cross-linked with a special LF4 polymer over the entire thickness section.
The use of this innovative method in the production of our printing tools has resulted in exceptional surface smoothness while maintaining high hardness, around 450 HV, depending on the aluminum alloy used.
This pioneering solution has enabled us to produce tools with unprecedented performance properties, which, by combining high strength and optimal grip, distinguish us from other suppliers.
Preparing the cylinder for work has never been easier. Thanks to the ANTIFRICTION coating, the foam tape fixing the polymer sheets is easy to change and takes much less time.
ANTIFRICTION means greater efficiency and productivity at the plant level.
- Completely new Polymeroxid® - matrix
- High surface smoothness
- Coating hardness around 450HV
- Optimal foam adhesion
- Quick foam replacement without adhesive residue on the cylinder surface
