Tesa 52120 PV1 Softprint Steel Master TP

Tesa 52120 PV1 Softprint Steel Master TP

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

Product Features

  • tesa® 52120 Softprint Steel Master TP is a double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for mounting thinner photopolymer plates of thickness 1.14mm (0.045″) or 1.70mm (0.067″) in wide-web film and paper flexographic printing, on machines using steel cylinders or sleeves.
  • The medium-hard foam makes this the ideal solution for printing solids and halftones.

Main Applications

tesa® 52020 Softprint Steelmaster is a 500µm (20 mil) category double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for mounting thicker photopolymer plates of thickness 1.70mm (0.067″), 2.54mm (0.100″) and above in wide-web film and paper flexographic printing, on machines using steel cylinders or sleeves.

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
  • Blue color marking indicates the hard foam
