The new Softblade doctor blade is constructed of carbon doctor blade steel and a durable nickel based coated tip to protect the blade. Using the Softblade reduces score lines, especially when running higher line counts. The product name does not reflect a softer base material. The base carbon steel combined with a tough coating makes the MDC Softblade an ideal choice when using high pH inks. The coating is resistant to the effects of light to medium corrosive inks and lacquers. During operation, the coating flows into the contact zone, protecting the contact zone from oxidation and corrosion. Toning and streaking are reduced because the coating can cover small damages to the contact zone.
