2.1 mm (83 mil) tesaprint® cushioning foam self-adhesive

Product description

tesa® 88021 is a white closed-cell PE foam, equipped with an acrylic adhesive, covered by a blue film liner.
It is especially designed to add a compressible layer to the compound of printing plate and carrier film when printing directly on corrugated board (Flexo Postprint).
The outstanding foam quality will ensure excellent print quality, especially in combination with thinner printing plates. It also provides long-term resilience and outstanding resistance against water and solvents.
To use this self-adhesive version of our tesaprint® cushioning foams, simply cut off the required foam size and remove the film liner to adhere the foam to the backside of your carrier film, after you have finished the printing plate mounting.
