Air entrapments between the sleeve or cylinder and the tape
Adhesion between tape and sleeve is disturbed, for example by trapped humidity (caused by temperature differences between tape and sleeve) or by other contaminations on the sleeve surface.
How to solve?
- Make sure that all components are stored at the same temperature before mounting
- Make sure that the sleeves are properly cleaned and no dirt or ink residues affect the tape adhesion
- Make sure that cleaning agents used to clean the sleeve prior to mounting have sufficient time to evaporate before tape mounting, this is especially important in case of scratched or damaged sleeves where humidity can collect
