A range of solutions – designed around you

Marathon provides several press pad solutions to suit specific applications.   

Reinforcement can avoid problems such as ‘white spots’

A reinforced pad may be required if the platens on the press are not parallel, or they are pressing a dense product, causing the press plates to flex (or bend) at the outer edges, causing ‘white spots’. 


Speak to sales

White spots can occur along the edge of the product where the board has received insufficient pressure to complete the laminate process satisfactorily.  Special engineered press pads by Marathon have been particularly successful in dealing with this problem.
