squeegee profiles


Watts Squeegees supply a wide range of squeegee edge profiles. In addition to the common square edge there are a variety of single and double bevel profiles that fulfil various mechanical and printing requirements. For identification purposes each profile has been given its own reference G1, G2 etc.

  • G1 G1Open or Close
    G1 Profile

    The standard Square Edged profile is used for a wide range of applications, but most commonly used in general textile and graphics applications. Suitable for both manual and automatic printing and on a wide range of substrates.

  • G2 G2Open or Close
    G2 Profile

    Single bevelled squeegees, generally used for printing into non-absorbent surfaces such as plastic, glass or metal. Conforms easily to irregular surfaces while maintaining excellent ink deposit. Widely used on container printing and also in bottle printing.

  • G3 G3Open or Close
    G3 Profile

    This double bevel edge squeegee blade (60 or 45 deg) provides excellent control for direct printing onto cylindrical surfaces and irregular forms, also fine print for textiles.

  • G4 G4Open or Close
    G4 Profile

    This double bevel flat edge blade is used on most substrates including direct ceramic printing. The profile allows for maximum ink shear and good angle control when depositing ink with a wide range of viscosity on multiple substrates.

  • G5 G5Open or Close
    G5 Profile

    This squeegee blade has two different hardness, with one half hard, the other half soft. This means the blade will flex less preventing roll over, the angle is therefore maintained giving excellent ink shear. The softer edge allowing for good ink deposit.

  • G6 G6Open or Close
    G6 Profile

    A Square Edge Composite Triple Hardness squeegee blade gives the printer the responsiveness of a soft to medium hard blade without the undesired flexing created by increased secondary force squeegee pressure. Excellent for printing on high mesh counts with high tension.

  • G16 G16Open or Close
    G16 Profile

    The single bevel flat edge blade, allows for increased squeegee angle while maintaining the sharp edge for maximum ink shear on cylindrical substrates. Works well with high viscosity ink.

  • G18 (Bullnose) G18Open or Close
    G18 Profile Bullnose

    A moulded product, popular in applications such as textile printing and adhesive printing, offering maximum ink deposit.

  • G25 (Diamond) G25Open or Close
    G25 Profile Diamond

    Used extensively on PCB (Printed Circuit Board) machines, this ‘Diamond’ profile is most common in 9.5x9.5mm or 10x10mm dimensions. The squeegee is fitted close to the holder enabling greater control whilst printing.

  • G30 G30Open or Close
    G30 Profile

    The new G30 profiled Watts Squeegee Blade is constructed with a rigid fibreglass backing and a Polyurethane Printing strip. The Polyurethane component is the Watts 5000 Series material, which is a Vulkollan® polyurethane made under licence from Bayer AG.

    The two part construction of the G30 blade eliminates flexing that can occur with standard polyurethane blades. The rigid backing enables you to achieve very consistent results with even pressure and a constant printing angle.

  • G30R G30ROpen or Close
    G30R Profile

    The two part construction consists of a fibreglass backing with a 5000 Series polyurethane strip, offering optimum performance in rotary applications. The G30R eliminates undesirable flexing, ensuring optimum accuracy and even contact with the screen.
