Squeegee Blades & Profiles

Pleiger Plastics offers squeegee blades and squeegee profiles for a wide range of polyurethane screen printing squeegees designed for specific printing applications.

Popular Squeegee Blades and Profiles

Straight Edge/Square Edge Squeegee Blades

Straight Edge/Square Edge Squeegee Blades

Offer excellent shear for good deposit control and image definition. The most common squeegee used in graphic and textile printing applications. Lowest Cost Profile, most versatile.

Use Lower Durometers for more porous substrates. Use Harder Durometers for smoother substrates.

Beveled Doctor Blade Squeegee Blades

Beveled Squeegees Blades

Offer increased hydraulic pressure on the ink. On cylinder presses with no angle control or variation, the bevel controls the hydraulic pressure to drive the ink through the stencil. On presses with angle control, the bevel offers a consistent increased hydraulic pressure that drive extra ink through the screen.

Straight Edge-Triple Durometer Squeegees Blades

Straight Edge-Triple Durometer

An exceptional tool for critical ink shear. Two soft edges with hard backing between them. Maintains proper angle with no blade rollover at higher screen tension and print pressures. Soft printing tip conforms to irregular surfaces. Used mainly on high-speed presses.

They are primarily used on four-color and halftone jobs.
