Foam plate mounting tape (medium-hard) for printing combinations & solids

Product Features

  • tesa® 52017 Softprint Steel Master is a double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for mounting photopolymer plates with a thickness of 1.70mm (0.067″) or 2.54mm (0.100″) in flexographic label printing.
  • The medium-hard foam makes this the ideal solution for printing combinations and screens.

Main Applications

tesa® 52015 Softprint Steel Master is a 380µm (15 mil) category double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for mounting photopolymer plates with a thickness of 1.70mm (0.067″) or 2.54mm (0.100″) in flexographic label printing.

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
  • High bonding to plate to avoid edge lifting or plate movement
  • Non increasing bonding power for easy repositioning and especially for easy demounting of plate and tape
  • Very cohesive adhesive structure for demounting without adhesive residues

Additional properties

  • The structured PP-liner prevents the formation of air pockets when plate mounting
  • Red color marking indicates the medium foam
