Abstract

The effects of Condebelt drying on the surface properties and printability of linerboard were studied. Condebelt dried and cylinder dried linerboard were used and their printability in flexo, offset and ink jet printing were compared. Condebelt drying gives a smoother and glossier surface than cylinder drying. This surface has clear advantages, especially in flexo printing. The print density and gloss are good. The amount of ink needed to reach a certain density is lower. The evenness of print image on high frequencies is good, but the low frequency unevenness (mottling) may increase. The results suggest that - compared with cylinder drying - Condebelt drying gives a special property combination which results in a significantly improved printability, especially when the board formation is good.
