How do I stop “checking” / “flaking”?
Checking and flaking is usually caused by lateral draw across the sheet. Shreiner has developed two types of profile rubber to combat this. First is our D profile rubber. D profile couples more surface area with a rolling clamp motion to help seat the sheet. By gripping and seating the sheet D profile will help eliminate the tearing of the sheet edge when lateral draw occurs. D profile comes in two different densities to accommodate those cutting paperboard and those cutting corrugated.
For more extreme circumstances where the lateral draw is too much D profile to handle, Shreiner can offer C profile. C profile has enlarged surface area for maximum gripping of the sheet. C profile also combines the maximum gripping action with a slighter rolling motion, insuring that lateral draw will not affect the sheet edge. As with D profile, C profile comes in two different densities for paperboard and corrugated cutting.
