Product Benefits of Plate Mounting Tape
Plate mounting tape achieves superior printing results even at higher machine speeds and during longer print runs. Some of the features and benefits of using Scapa plate mounting tape are:
• Different colours help to quickly identify foam hardness
• Specific embossed plastic liner reduces the risk of air entrapment, allowing for bubble-free mounting of the plate
• The compressible structure of the foam enhances print quality by absorbing any tolerances caused by the irregularities of the print cylinder
• Reduces machine vibration
• The compressible structure allows even longer and faster print runs with consistently high print definition and reducing the dot gain at elevated machine speeds
• Specific acrylic adhesive on both sides provide a secure bond, combined with clean removability from the cylinder and plate
• Different levels of product hardness from soft to hard foam to properly match printing requirements
