Rubbercloth is a soft black compressed laminate make-ready.

Due to the glass-impregnated surface, this make-ready ensures a greater durability compared to the fibre based make-readies. Rubbercloth is an excellent make-ready for large solid foil blocking areas due to the make-readies ability to compress, alleviating uneven pressure issues.  Rubbercloth is commonly used to avoid marking from large dies and is extremely beneficial on large bed machines using multiple dies in one impression.

The results from hot stamping with a simple textured die can also be enhanced when using Rubbercloth.
