Printer's Repair Parts, Inc. (PRP) Announces Acquisition of Duroweave Dampening Covers .
Today, Printer's Repair Parts, Inc. (PRP) announced the acquisition of Duroweave Dampening Covers from Novatech Graphic Industries, enabling PRP to immediately start manufacturing and distributing this premium brand molleton dampening cover for offset presses.
We are excited to bring the Duroweave brand cover back. We have already shipped all of our pending orders, and anticipate being in full production by the end of June. We have been selling the Duroweave cover since the 1980s, and did not want to see the demise of this premium, high quality cover. Duroweave has been one of the highest quality covers in the market for decades, and a staple to so many printers, said Ken Schelberger, Vice President at Printer's Repair Parts, Inc. (PRP).
Positive Customer Impact
Duroweave, one of the most popular sheared surface covers, utilizes modern, high-speed knitting equipment to efficiently produce Duroweave covers, which offers a highly absorbent sheared surface, and is available in prepackaged cut lengths with drawstrings for all duplicators, small web, and sheet-fed presses, as well as roll material. Our products are marketed under the brand name Duroweave.
Duroweave Dampening Covers
Sheared 100% synthetic fiber composition: Our use of premium synthetic yarns ensures that our products will enhance the quality of the printed piece as well as increase the productivity of the press and operator alike. Sheared, velour-like pile surface and seamless construction provide pattern free printing. Water absorption and retention is far superior to non-sheared, loop surface covers. Evenly sheared surface height permits reduced roller-to-plate pressure settings, extending plate life and improving image quality.
Shrinks tight when wet for the first time: The surface pile fibers are bound tight by the shrinking base yarn. Linting or fiber separation is non-existent from the start... no break-in period! Increased productivity with uninterrupted printing: No need to stop the press to clean fiber buildup on the plate, blanket, or rollers. No creeping, twisting, or walking off the roller, even at high speeds.
Washes clean with hot tap water: Covers may be cleaned between jobs or at the end of the day in just one minute or less. No solvents, manual scrubbing, or specialized cleaning machinery is required, just hot water. Fast, simple maintenance makes Duroweave covers last for months. Reduces dampening costs by 50% or more! Go from black ink to yellow ink, or any other light color, without having to change covers.
