Similar to the now-discontinued Varn Swell, the Rapid Blanket Blue Swell is a fast-acting, topical blanket repair solution. It works quickly by applying directly to the damaged area or low spot of the blanket to restore a proper printing surface for halftones and critical images, thus eliminating expensive downtime.

This product is a great cost-saving solution. Blankets can be expensive to replace, and discarding them prematurely can hurt profits. With the Rapid Blanket Blue Swell, simply apply a small amount to the damaged area of the blanket, and it will puff back up to provide proper printing pressure.

How to Use Blue Swell Blanket Smash Repair

To restore a proper printing surface for halftones and critical images, apply Blue Swell directly to the damaged area or low spot of the blanket. Blue Swell is an ideal "touch-and-go" solution for restoring the printing surface of blankets damaged by smashes caused by stock misfeed, hidden markers, short sheets, or incomplete envelopes.

After applying Blue Swell, a press with a blanket smash can resume printing in just a few minutes. Keeping costs low is essential in running a business, and maximizing the use of supplies is an effective way to achieve this goal.
