Sandvik Sancrêpe™ creping blade types
Sandvik Sancrêpe™ creping blades are available in two types, suitable for different types of fibers.
Both types of Sandvik creping blades are characterized by little distortion, making them easily regrindable and fully productive when remounted. The optimal edge profiles without burrs mean the blade needs no honing of the edges before it is mounted in the tissue machine.
Sandvik Sancrêpe™ RP creping blade for virgin fibers
The Sandvik Sancrêpe™ RP creping blade is characterized by its durability and by giving high and consistent bulk quality.
Sandvik Sancrêpe™ EPS creping blade for all fibers
The Sandvik Sancrêpe™ EPS creping blade has excellent wear characteristics, resulting in a service life that is exceptional for a steel blade. Since it holds the same level of hardness as Sandvik Sancrêpe RP creping blades, no reprogramming of the paper machine is necessary when switching between the two types.
