“Rubbering” gets from a long-time frustration to business success factor
Do you know that antivirus software on your computer giving a notification if a virus seems to be present on your PC? Or worse, completely block an application or program when it detects malicious behavior. A good thing, but it never really feels helpful, rather annoying. However, the security industry has turned their technology to the better. It’s no longer a frustration but a differentiator, giving organizations new business opportunities. Single sign-on methods to help people log-on once to get authorized for all relevant applications and tools. Payment methods with such strong security elements that they can be used on a smartphone. New ways of working creating competitive advantages. The industry of ‘rubbering’ techniques and ejection material is at the same point in time. Turn the frustration over from ugly cutting edges and rubber that needs to be replaced over-and-over (with machine downtime as result) to creating unique customer services and success factors that create competitive benefits.
First, let’s have a look at the functional role of ejection material. Simply put, it’s to eject the product and waste out of the die. However, there are more factors to take into account when choosing the right ejection material. What about the separation of this waste and product?

Since Polytop MX’s availability at the die cutting market, this long-lasting ejection material has proven to be beneficial in increasing the productivity of cutting in particular corrugated board. But, more and more Polytop MX is used as high performance ejection material for cutting solid board too. From trays for wet products to puzzles and from cigarette packaging to luxury products, Polytop MX can easily help you solving the most common cutting problems.
Growing percentage of recycled material
In Europe we see an increase of recycled material, which is of course a sustainable growth. But, for the quality of the board this isn’t always beneficial. However, for Polytop MX® this is not an issue. The strength of Polytop MX® lies not only in the long-lasting capacity, but also the ingenious hardness system. Better said, thanks to the availability of the material in various densities, we see that cracked inner liners or bad cut edges don’t always have to be the consequence of a poorer quality board. In this case you can choose for a softer version of Polytop MX®, which brings less pressure at the board during the cutting process.
The opposite we see with solid board. This material asks for a harder ejection material. For the slots or smaller internal waste areas, you can choose for a gradation harder. Thanks to this system, you are able to vary the hardness, without having worries about the durability of your ejection material and quality of the board.
Do you experience problems with a particular die or material and want to find out if Polytop MX® will make the difference for you? PolyMX and its partners, will advise you with the right choice of hardness, in combination with your board and your die-cutting equipment.
