Simply put, tesa® Twinlock is a reusable, self-adhesive, and compressible plate mounting sleeve - the printing plate can be directly mounted on the sleeve. After printing and plate removal, the tackiness can simply be re-activated and the sleeve is ready for the next job.

Just let us know your favorite sleeve type and we take that sleeve and add a layer of polyurethane (PU) foam, a stabilization film layer, and then a layer made from a polymer that is formulated to retain its adhesive qualities. 


  • Three different hardness levels (soft, medium, and hard) for different print motifs
  • Different thickness coating layers to deliver a sleeve exactly fitting to your needs

Cost and time SAVINGS in the mounting department
Why? Because you won’t be buying, storing, mounting and de-mounting a variety of tapes any longer

Reaching SUSTAINABILITY targets

Future environmental conservation and sustainable ESG modernization development by using technology of renewable resources to reduce pollution and carbon emission .
  • Reduction of WASTE
    A simplified calculation shows: For 200 print jobs, an average of roughly 450 kilograms of waste is caused by self-adhesive tape. This can be avoided by using tesa® Twinlock.
    When using tesa® Twinlock, you could be looking at one annual delivery instead of approximately 50 separate tape deliveries per year, which leads to fewer trucks emitting carbon dioxide.
Using tesa‘s reusable Twinlock system supports our plant in reducing waste and consequently achieving one of the group‘s sustainability commitments.

  • Consistent HIGH-QUALITY PRINT results even on LONG RUNS
    The special chemistry and thickness (1.5 mm) of our PU foam layer ensures consistent compressibility, eliminating the need for on-press machine adjustments.
  • Perfection in print REGISTER for first-rate print quality 
    Highest quality standards in our production process ensure that your exact sleeve thickness requirements are met. Additionally, the thickness tolerances of a standard sleeve and a standard plate mounting tape add up, resulting in an even higher tolerance level compared to our one-sleeve solution. 
  • Reduced BOUNCING enables high printing speeds and print quality
    Our specially designed PU foam compensates for vibrations occurring on press and smoothens out the effects of unbalance within the printing press.
tesa® Twinlock sleeves work very well on high speeds.

  • Reusability ensures FAST PAYBACK PERIOD
    The more you use your new tesa® Twinlock sleeves, the faster will they pay off. When investing in a new press or sets of sleeves anyways, the significance of the initial invest is considerably reduced.
    Three hardnesses covering all levels of required print quality, a large share of all print jobs can be printed with our medium hardness sleeve.
    No tape mounting, no liner removal, no tape demounting after printing: less process steps and an overall easy & quick application process.
With tesa® Twinlock it was not only the potential ROI, thanks to the time and material savings that convinced us, but also the high-quality print results. Our initial investment in tesa® Twinlock technology helps us make optimal use of our overall assembly and printing machine system.
