C&T announces new Countamat – the durable Pertinax counter material
C&T Channel Matrix (C&T) has announced the introduction of a new Pertinax counter sheet for carton manufacturing – Countamat.
Countamat is a high quality durable counter material that offers cleaner cutting, longevity and antistatic properties. The improvements include better dimensional stability, less tendency to bend or curl and a longer life span. Supplied as 1070 x 1040 mm sheets, in 0.3 mm and 2.0 mm heights, Countamat material consists of a two layer fine woven glass cloth. The dense cloth weave ensures durability on press and clean channel cutting, whilst also helping to extend the life of the tool.
Specifically developed by C&T, it is ideal for cleaner routing and long run durability. Countamat is available with, or without, C&T’s easy peel adhesive backing. This improved grade is already a tried and trusted product with a number of die makers and customers ranging from pharmaceutical, food and beverage, tobacco and cosmetic packaging users.
Simon Shenton, managing director at C&T Matrix, said: ‘Countamat now offers better stability and durability, making it ideal for long run packaging work. We already have a number of customers using Countamat who have been delighted with the results, especially the quality and control of the crease. Our new supplier has also improved the accuracy of thickness tolerances, all further enhancing Countamat’s credentials as a leading Pertinax counter sheet with great supply availability.’
