tesa – Specialist Flexo Plate Mounting Tape

We represent tesa in Australia for their plate mounting tape range.Flexographic printing can be used for a range of materials, requires only short print preparation times, is low-cost, and yields clean prints.The process uses flexible photopolymer plates with a backing layer, a light-sensitive relief layer, and a protective film coating. After a finishing process flexo plates are mounted on a sleeve or print cylinder using a plate mounting tape.
tesa – Specialist Flexo Plate Mounting Tape
To achieve optimum prints, tesa offers a full line of plate mounting tapes, each tailored precisely to different printing process requirements, for example, the mounting of thin plates used for sophisticated raster printing. In this technique, the printed dots are very fine, and requires a harder printing plate, which, in turn, demands a softer foam plate mounting tape. Firmer foams, on the other hand, are better suited to color transfer in solid and combination printing.The diverse foam thicknesses, acrylic and rubber adhesive masses and different adhesive strengths, permit customized use in all modern-day flexographic printing techniques. Printing plates can be mounted smoothly, repositioned easily, and removed simply, all without residue after demounting: additional advantages that make tesa plate mounting tapes the best possible choice for flexographic printers.For optimum print quality, all the steps of the process must be designed to work together in perfect harmony. Plate mounting tapes play a crucial role in ensuring that this is the case. The tesa specialized product line for flexographic label printing offers tapes with the right foam hardness and adhesive properties for all printing techniques. The amount of physical and technical knowhow contained in each plate mounting tape is not immediately apparent, but is nonetheless hugely significant.The carefully formulated special adhesive masses, which enable simple, rapid, and low-residue removal of even the thinnest printing plates, but adhere securely to both the cylinder and the plate during printing, are just one example of this.The most important element of the tapes is their foam backing: SEM images show that the closed foam cells in tesa@ Softprint plate mounting tapes tapes have an extremely uniform cell structure. The result is even distribution of pressure and a consistency of foam cells that is precise to the thousandth of a centimeter.
