Product information

tesa® Softprint 52221 PV1 Sleeve Master



Product description

tesa® 52221 Softprint Sleeve Master is a double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for mounting thin photopolymer plates of thickness 1.14mm (0.045") or 1.70mm (0.067") in wide-web film and paper flexographic printing, on machines with sleeve technology.

The medium foam makes this the ideal solution for printing screens, text, barcodes and solids.

Foam properties
  • Highly compressible foam, with superior recovery behavior for excellent print quality
  • Long lasting recovery characteristic for extended and high speed print runs
  • Low thickness tolerances for quick print preparation and reduced waste

Adhesive properties
  • Tailored adhesion on open side to sleeve to avoid plate movement
  • Sufficient bonding to plate to avoid edge lifting or plate movement
  • Non increasing, controlled bonding power for easy repositioning and especially for easy demounting of thinner plates
  • Very cohesive adhesive structure for demounting without adhesive residues

Additional properties
  • The structured PP-liner prevents the formation of air pockets when plate mounting
  • Purple color marking indicates the medium foam
