enlighten-U microcellular urethane is available in a wide range of market appropriate thicknesses. The product is provided buffed or un-buffed with or without a removable polyester film substrate. Products are provided as either roll or sheet goods to support flexible manufacturing.

The tight thickness tolerance and smooth finish of Griswold’s open-cell urethane flexographic printing blankets can significantly reduce your start-up waste by saving time and materials every time you make-ready on press. Our blanket material quickly brings the image to print as roll impression is set, reducing dot gain and unprinted areas, while evenly delivering ink to high saturation solids. Reducing pressure and absorbing shock for flexographic printing plates, our products result in higher print quality, while never compromising performance in flexographic and corrugated printing.
