Incompressible Plate-mounting Tapes



Plate mounting with incompressible tapes: Amazing versatility across a wide range of print jobs

Ever notice how the most valuable player on a team is often the one who makes the most assists? It’s that one player who quietly ensures the win by being reliable and consistent, no matter what the game throws at them.

You get the analogy. If printing is a team sport, our plate mounting tapes are the MVP, setting you up for the slam dunk every time.

Cliché? Perhaps. But this is especially true when it comes to printing with compressible sleeves. Our incompressible tapes are conditioned to perform. That’s because we know the competition is tough. And just like a knowledgeable coaching staff, our engineers are constantly evaluating and tweaking our portfolio of solutions so each one is always at the top of its game – whether it’s flexo printing on corrugated board or film, letterpress printing or even dry offset printing.

Bringing our “A game”

You can count on tesaprint® to crush any other incompressible tapes in their class, and we’re not just talkin’ smack. Here’s what we’re bringing:

  • Versatile adhesive options that just won’t quit, no matter what type of job you’re running
  • Flexible, strong film and cloth backing materials in an impressive range of thicknesses
  • Optimized release liners that make application and demounting a breeze

Plus, we offer the services of a world-class sales team who share a combined 500 years of experience in the flexo printing industry (well, not quite, but pretty close). Our reps are familiar with the different types of compressible printing sleeves and their many different surface layers. They’ll help you select the right plate mounting tape for secure print runs, as well as ease and efficiency of mounting.

Compressible Sleeves

So you’re the compressible sleeve type, huh? Super smart, a little intense, you like to run your presses really fast. Yep, we know your type. And we’re swiping right, because this is a perfect match.

What we love about you most is you’re a problem solver, plain and simple. The other thing? You don’t mess around. Sure, you could do the same types of jobs with an older press, a hard sleeve and foam tape, but that’s not how you roll. And you’re not about to let something like a balancing or vibration issue slow you down, either.  For you, only a compressible sleeve will do, and we have the perfect tape for it.

Are you picking up on the vibes yet? Good. Because the beauty of this match is that it’s not complicated. You’re not going to be confused about what kind of tape, or what number of tapes you need. Just relax. All you need is a thin but sturdy incompressible tape with staying power. One that’s going to stick to the sleeve for the duration, whether you’re printing film packaging or anything else at super high speeds.

Our tapes for compressible sleeves are:

  • Available in film or cloth backing
  • Fortified with super-adhesive staying power
  • Resistant to solvent and ink residues
  • Easy to apply, easy to remove

Don’t worry. These plate mounting tapes allow for some initial repositioning when needed. After that, it’s ready for the long haul!
