Tesa 52222 PV1 Softprint Sleeve Master

Tesa 52222 PV1 Softprint Sleeve Master

Foam plate mounting tape (soft) for screen print & combination work

Product Features

  • tesa® 52222 Softprint Sleeve Master is a double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for mounting thin photopolymer plates of thickness 1.14mm (0.045″) or 1.70mm (0.067″) in wide-web film and paper flexographic printing, on machines with sleeve technology.
  • The soft foam makes this the ideal solution for screen printing with some combination work.

Main Applications

tesa® 52222 Softprint Sleeve Master is a 500µm (20 mil) double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for mounting thin photopolymer plates of thickness 1.14mm (0.045″) or 1.70mm (0.067″) in wide-web film and paper flexographic printing, on machines with sleeve technology.

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

  • Tailored adhesion on open side to 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
  • Red color marking indicates the soft foam
