Somehow, alongside varying run lengths, substrates, and formats, you have to meet an increasing demand for efficiency.
No one offers a more comprehensive range of foams, adhesives, and technology - including tesa® Softprint and reusable tesa® Twinlock - than tesa. So you will have the ideal solution for your needs, gaining mounting and demounting efficiency, and perfect bonding, whilst reducing complexity, waste, on-press adjustments, and downtime. All of which improve sustainability too. Just as the smallest changes in your set-up can impact your print quality, small changes in your process can make a positive impact on your productivity and profitability.   

Achieving profitability targets

Being as efficient as possible isn't always simple. If you are looking for self-adhesive plate mounting solutions to support efficiency within your production, you can rely on us with the broadest plate mounting assortment in the market.
We offer you complete flexibility to select exactly what works best for you, with no supplier assortment limitations holding you back. And that is one of the things that makes us unique.


01Consistency and speed

The right plate mounting foam hardness is key to consistent print quality. We offer six levels of foam hardness to ensure 'right first time' results whatever the motif, avoiding print defects such as excessive dot gain or pinholing. Our high-quality foams are especially resilient, too, enabling faster machine speeds and avoiding on-press setting adjustments and resulting waste.


02Reliable bonding

No two adhesives are the same. All respond differently upon environmental conditions and print parameters. Choosing carefully will save you headaches and wasted time. The right plate-side adhesive will prevent edge lift for all plate thicknesses, and at the same time prevent plate damage when demounting. Our sleeve-side adhesives ensure quick and easy mounting and demounting of tape from sleeve at all times.


03Ease of handling

The plate mounting process can take up valuable time. That's why all our tesa® Softprint plate mounting tapes are developed having efficiency in mind. Our structured EA liner for example creates micro channels in the adhesive to avoid air entrapment beneath the printing plate so that no re-mounts are necessary. tesa® Twinlock self-adhesive sleeves avoid the step of tape application alltogether, plates can directly be mounted on the sleeves.
