– known for decades for high precision strip steel, and furthermore a partner of the paper and tissue producing industry manufacturing enhanced coater, creping and printing doctor blades, has passed a new milestone in the product development of creping blades. uddeholmstrip has increased its creping blade portfolio with the new CERMET coated blade. The blade contains wear resistant carbides in an extremely dense metal matrix. This results in a blade that provides a longer lifetime than standard ceramic coated blades with extremely consistent running performance.
A series of full mill trials were carried out at five prominent mills across Europe, with the result that the Q-Crepe CM fulfils all requirements of standard blades and additionally lasts a minimum of 15% longer with very consistent tissue properties, requiring almost no operator intervention, and without evidence of damage to the Yankee cylinders.
