tesa® 52821 Softprint Secure is a double-coated foam tape, designed specifically for print process security in wide-web flexographic printing. The revolutionary adhesive system is extremely solvent resistant, holds the edges, even of thick, photopolymer plates down on minimal diameter sleeves or cylinders. This makes this product the ideal solution for faster printing speeds, longer print jobs and designs that require minimal joins.
The open side adhesive is designed to function on steel and sleeves. The covered side of adhesive is different and very solvent resistant.
The medium foam makes this the ideal solution for printing combinations of screens and line work.
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
High solvent resistance that allows for in-press plate cleaning
High bonding to plate to avoid edge lifting or plate movement
High bonding on open side to steel cylinder or sleeve to avoid plate movement or compound lift
Ideal bonding power for demounting of plate and tape
Very cohesive adhesive structure for demounting without adhesive residues
The structured PP-liner prevents the formation of air pockets when the plate is mounted
