tesa® Twinlock is a self-adhesive, reusable and compressible sleeve. Comprised of a base sleeve, polyurethane foam, stabilization film, and adhesive polymer, it’s the newest plate mounting adhesive. No more stickyback. No more costly, time-consuming mounting processes. No cylinders + tape + plates.
Just tesa® Twinlock. One plate. One print run. It’s as simple as that. tesa® Twinlock can help you meet customer deadlines and demands, turning jobs more efficiently – saving time and money.
And with three different hardness levels — soft, medium, and hard foam structures — tesa® Twinlock technology allows complete flexibility for printing customers. The different thickness layers of the tesa® Twinlock coating enable us to deliver the most accurate sleeve based on your existing print production needs.
- Endless adhesion – Dependent on following proper SOP’s, tesa® Twinlock adhesive coating is a specially-treated polymer that holds lasting tackiness, and it won’t decrease over time.
- Extensive life span – Thanks to its enduring tackiness, there is virtually no limit to how many times a tesa® Twinlock sleeve can be used (with good care, etc.).
- Consistent print quality – The tesa® Twinlock open cell structure creates reliable, long-term print quality that’s consistent over time. Because the structure helps it absorb bounce, the need for on-press adjustments all but disappears.
- Sustainability – The reusability of tesa® Twinlock makes it one of the most sustainable solutions on the market and an alternative to the traditional sleeve/cylinder + tape + plate approach that sends tons of plate mounting tape (and packing boxes) to the landfill every year. tesa® Twinlock enables packaging printers to add downstream value and help their consumer packaged goods customers meet their sustainability goals.
