Use of thin-walled sleeves
More flexibility in the horizontal direction, which compensates for differences in the sleeve circumstance during the mounting process onto thin-walled sleeves.Customer Benefit
- Better tape bonding on thin-walled sleeves
- No press downtime
Use of scratched sleeve surfaces
Aligned combination of a more flexible product design and specially-engineered adhesive on the sleeve side, achieving better bonding on inconsistent surfaces.Customer Benefit
- Better bonding on inconsistent sleeve surfaces
- No press downtime
tesa Softprint® FE-X plate mounting tapes don´t just hold down plate edges effectively under standard conditions. Our engineers have developed a plate mounting tape which also offers the best plate bonding during in-press cleaning with solvents and at high temperatures and humidity. Furthermore, to optimize the print job preparation, the plate side adhesive of tesa Softprint® FE-X comes with a non-tacky surface characteristic to mount multi-colour jobs faster into register. These benefits simply make tesa Softprint® FE-X productive for every printer!
Our smart tape production process leads to more intact foam cells for better cushioning and resilience over time – providing excellent print quality.
Furthermore the combination of tesa Softprint tapes with the latest plate technologies and high quality printing presses allows the best print quality for combination motifs when selecting only one foam hardness. This enables printers to reduce process complexity and offers more standardized print production. For more details about this print job, please visit us at DRUPA.
