Nanotechnology-enhanced Doctor Blades

Nanotechnology-Enhanced Doctor Blades
Nanotechnology, in terms of doctor blade materials, is the inclusion of micro particulate materials into the resin matrix.

A doctor blade will only effectively clean the roll surface if its leading edge remains strong enough. The nanotechnology-enhanced resin matrix is engineered to increase the longevity of the blade and its leading edge. Longer life translates directly to fewer blade changes and lower operating costs while maintaining the cleaning function necessary for machine efficiency. Each nanotechnology-enhanced doctor blade is designed for rolls where the removal of contaminants is particularly challenging and extended blade life is required.

Nanotechnology-enhanced doctor blades are offered under the following trade names: nPak™, nForce™, nRepel™, nDure™, nTek™, and nClean™.


  • Carbon fiber with patented nanotechnology-enhanced resin composite
  • High performance resin and carbon fiber with carbide sprayed tip


  • Improved wear life and leading edge integrity
  • Reduced operation costs
  • Fewer blade changes
