Innovative new development

Avatar of Clouth Media CrewClouth Media Crew - February 2021

The new generation of doctor blades – for clean performance in the drying section

Today, the Durada® family is growing:
Our innovative new development Durada®-DT.

With the Durada®-DT, we have succeeded for the first time in developing a blade that is constructed by combining a thermoplastic matrix and a long-life ceramic coating in addition to a multi-glass fibre fabric on the inside.

An unique interaction of materials for sustainably clean cylinder surfaces!

This is where the Durada®-DT shows its particular strength.

The ceramic coating ensures gentle and lasting cleanliness of drying cylinders and roll surfaces.

If it is necessary to clean the cylinder beforehand, we recommend using a steel blade from the Clouth doctor blade range

Another advantage of the ceramic coating is the significantly longer service life of the blade in use: this blade lasts longer than we would like*!

For you, this means reduced maintenance and increased run-time.

Whilst the Durada®-DT doctor blade is doing its work, it saves energy as only minimal pressure is required for its contact with the roll.

The Durada®-DT is suitable for all common doctor holder systems and is therefore easy to use.
