Complete plate mounting tape solutions for Flexographic / Letter Press / Corrugated Printing.
Plate mounting tapes have a critical influence on your process efficiency and print quality. Selecting the correct foam tape for your production will produce exceptional print quality, enable improved speeds, and overcoming annoying print defects
tesa® Softprint is a double-sided foam plate mounting tape with a range of thickness and hardness.
tesa® Softprint tapes are equipped with our high-performance adhesives. The adhesive offers a high repulsion and solvent resistance and a low tack for easy plate repositioning and trouble-free plate demounting.
The structured liner of tesa® Softprint creates micro channels within the adhesive that help air to escape during mounting and printing. The improved product surface allows for a smooth manual application.
All foam cells within the tape are intact for better cushioning and resilience over time.
