tesa® 52918

Mounting of thin photopolymer plates on compressible sleeves

Product description

tesa® 52918 is especially designed for plate mounting of thin photopolymer plates (e.g. 1.14 mm / 0.045" or 1.70 mm / 0.067") on compressible sleeves in flexographic printing.
It is a double-sided tape with differentiated adhesion levels on its two sides.
While the sleeve side adhesive ensures a secure bond to the sleeve, the plate side adhesive is especially tailored for a strong bond to photopolymer plates, while at the same time allowing for easy repositioning and removal of the plate.
The specially developed liner allows for smooth and easy tape application.
Solvent and ink resistance of the tape ensure easy and efficient processes.
All of our products for plate mounting on compressible sleeves feature very thin film backings to not interfere with the compressible characteristics of the sleeve.

Main applications

Plate mounting of thin photopolymer plates (e.g. 1.14 mm / 0.045" or 1.70 mm / 0.067") on compressible sleeves in flexographic printing.
