IPI DUROROD™-CERAMIC HIGH-PERFORMANCE RODS FOR COATING AND METERING FILM PRESS OPERATIONS

 

IPI Durorod is an IPI product developed in conjunction with BTG to enhance sizing, pigmenting and coating quality of base paper.

Utilizing our knowledge of ceramics gained from our work with high-performance ceramic coating blades, IPI Durorod comes in HD (heavy-duty) ceramics, providing the best performance and wear-resistance for high-end products.

State-of-the-art machinery and production processes guarantee high-precision rods with reliable and enduring performance. The polished, mirror-like finish of IPI Durorod ensures that a smooth, flat film is delivered to the paper.

Improved machine runnability and paper quality – hence increased productivity – have been proven in different paper grades and on different machines.

The purchase of IPI Durorod provides our users with access to some of the most advanced technical service capabilities in the world. BTG, along with IPI, has in-depth knowledge of the many facets of the film application process and is familiar with every coater, film press or size press manufacturer. This know-how is made available to our customers and is used to ensure that every application of our products is optimized.
