4 Plate Mounting Solutions for Flexographic Printing

Creative Engineering is a long-term trustworthy distributor of tesa, the world’s top tape company. We offer a comprehensive assortment of plate mounting solutions with foam, film, or cloth backings to fulfill all flexo printing needs.


     1. Self-adhesive Plate Mounting Sleeves: tesa Twinlock


tesa® Twinlock: the reusable, self-adhesive, and compressible sleeve that provides consistency in high quality printing.


The unique concept of tesa® Twinlock is to provide sustainable and re-usable plate mounting solutions for cost efficient and consistent high quality print jobs.

The basis for this technology begins with the selection of a base sleeve or cylinder from the customer’s preferred supplier. We then add a polyurethane (PU) foam layer on to the top of the base sleeve. The PU foam is coated with a unique polymer that has the characteristics to remain permanently tacky. When proper cleaning and handling procedures are observed, there is no limit to how many times tesa® Twinlock can be used.
