Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9637367A1] A squeegee for use in screen printing devices is composed at least partially of a fibre-reinforced plastic. The use of fibre-reinforced plastic in a squeegee results in a lower weight than the conventional stainless steel or aluminium squeegees, as a result of which the manipulability of the squeegee is increased for operating staff. Furthermore, the flexural stiffness of the squeegee can be increased by this use, which has a beneficial effect on the printing quality. Both a weight saving and an increase in the flexural stiffness can be achieved by a suitable choice of material for the fibre-reinforced plastic with an improved ratio of density and flexural stiffness.
