THE SUSTAINABLE & REUSABLE PLATE MOUNTING SOLUTION
tesa® Twinlock – the Self-Adhesive & Compressible Sleeve
For High Quality And Consistent Printing
The concept of tesa® Twinlock is simple: a self-adhesive and compressible sleeve to mount your flexo printing plates.
The foundation of tesa® Twinlock is a base printing sleeve or cylinder that is coated with a layer of polyurethane (PU) foam. The PU foam is comprised of an open cell structure, and provides reliable, consistent, and long-term print quality. The open cell structure is a key feature as it effectively absorbs bouncing effects, and requires little on-press adjustments.
On top of the PU foam layer, the unique tesa® Twinlock adhesive coating is applied. This is a specially treated polymer that has been created in a way that it can remain tacky and permanently maintain its adhesion properties. Through a careful cleaning process it is ready for usage. This combination of adhesive and open cell foam makes tesa® Twinlock a worldwide, unique technology.
