Does any one have any experience with the transition automation permalex squeegee blade (I called them and they couldn't tell me much), or any blade other than the typical nickle coated spring steel. Part of our production has been moved (by our cus

The TA blades work very well. I understand that they are now available with the permalex coating over the whole blade rather than just the edge for no cost up. This is advertised to reduce sticking. As Boca says, try the epoxy vendor. Maybe the p
