Product description :
tesa® 52117 Softprint Steel Master 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 soft foam makes this the ideal solution for printing combinations and screens.
Foam properties :
Highly compressible foam, with superior recovery behavior for excellent print quality
Long lasting 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, controlled 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
