Vulcan Royal Web
The Vulcan Royal Web is Trelleborg’s most popular Coldset newspaper printing blanket on offer. It is available in 4-ply and 1,95mm thicknesses. The slightly positive feeding characteristic is what many newspaper printers want and need. The blanket offers high resistance to mechanical wear and the 4-ply composition allows for a very high dimensional stability which is a requirement, especially for the bigger newspaper presses.
