Product information

tesa Softprint® 52115 TP

Plate mounting tape for photopolymer plates in flexographic printing

Product description

tesa Softprint® 52115 TP is a double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for mounting photopolymer plates with a thickness of 1.14mm (0.045") or 1.70mm (0.067") in flexographic label printing.
The medium hard foam makes this the ideal solution for printing line work and texts.
Foam properties
  • Highly compressible foam, with superior recovery behavior for excellent print quality
  • Long lsting recovery characteristic for extended and high speed print runs
  • Low thickness tolerances for quick print preparation and reduced waste

Adhesive properties
  • High bonding on open side to steel cylinder or sleeve to avoid plate movement
  • Sufficient bonding to plate to avoid edge lifting or plate movement
  • Non increasing, tailored bonding power for easy repositioning and especially for easy demounting of thinner plates
  • Very cohesive adhesive structure for demounting without adhesive residues

Additional properties
  • The structured PP-liner prevents the formation of air pockets when plate mounting
  • Blue color marking indicates the medium hard foam quality
