This company has released several new products for the flexographic printing industry. The next-generation products reportedly enhance the company’s existing line oftesa-Softprint-Secure-Family-feature Softprint® secure plate mounting tapes. The Softprint Secure family comprises four products, all of which are equipped with closed-cell foam and filmic reinforcement technology that can promote high-quality results throughout the entire print run.

The products incorporate an adhesive system that has been specially developed to securely mount and maintain position of flexographic plates for the duration of the print process. Because of this new adhesive system, the products are reportedly able to resist edge lifting, even on the smallest cylinders and sleeves, regardless of plate thickness. The company has also developed an adhesive system that is reportedly extremely resistant to solvents.
