Underpacking - Finito

Finito® is an innovative product, designed to change both the technological and commercial concept of underpacking blankets. This universal underpacking for offset presses offers a better mechanical stress resistance and print quality. Versatile and easy to use thanks even to the handy box "ready-to-use".

Finito® replaces old underpacking blankets and calibrated papers with an exclusive innovative material, eliminating all the storage and handling problems of conventional underpacking. The exclusive concept of this new underpacking is to offer a ready to use sheet in the correct thickness recommended by the press manufacturer.

Benefits of using Finito®:

  • High usage flexibility
  • Stability of the layer during printing runs
  • Long-lasting
  • Solvent resistant
  • Optimal compression set resistance and optimal rebound properties
  • Resistant to mechanical stress
  • Self-levelling with a high capacity to adapt to the profile of the cylinder
  • Better uniformity of rulescreening and solids transfer
  • Better slur stability during printing

How does Finito® work?

Finito® is installed on the press just like underblankets and/or calibrated papers.

Technical structure of Finito®

The core structure is a modified TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) used in various thicknesses - calendered to a PES film (polyester). PES films can also be inserted inside the polymeric master. One or more reusable PES films (thickness of 0.05 mm) can be applied using stick-tear off technology.

Finito® is available in different versions:

for sheetfed offset press, big, medium and small size, no adhesive, with an extra 0,05 mm film

for sheetfed offset press, big, medium and small size, adhesive
