ORAFOL® Solid tapes are a range of double-sided hard tapes for photopolymer or rubber plate mounting on print cylinders for flexography, letterpress and label printing.ORAFOL® Solid products are designed with balanced adhesion levels to give good plate security while allowing distortion-free repositioning and demounting. The adhesives are designed to remove clearly and without residues from sleeves and metal cylinders after use.

  • Easy repositioning and great conformability to the cylinder or sleeve
  • Easy and clean removal from the plate, resistance to chemicals and solvents, and will not damage the plate
  • Improved printing quality through a secure bond between plate and tape, as well as metal cylinder or sleeve
  • 0.1mm,  0.2mm and 0.3mm thicknesses

SCAPA Tapes

Double Sided Soft Foam Plate Mounting Tape

Exafit® 43201HP is a double-sided foam tape specially designed for flexographic plate mounting. It is based on a speciality acrylic adhesive on its open side (cylinder side) and a graphic grade acrylic adhesive on its closed side (clichés side). Exafit® 43201HP is reinforced with a polyester film and uses a transparent smooth siliconised embossed PP release liner.

Product Benefits
  • Special Soft high-performance PE foam allows even longer, faster print runs with consistently high print definition and reduced dot gain at elevated machine speeds.
  • The compressible structure enhances print quality by absorbing any tolerances caused by the irregularities between the impression cylinder, the printing plates and the print cylinder or sleeve, and reduces machine vibration.
  • Differential adhesion, with high adhesion and tack on the plate side and a controlled adhesion on the cylinder side, makes Exafit® 43201HP versatile enough to be used for mounting a variety of clichés on to steel cylinders or sleeves.
  • The specific embossed plastic liner used on Exafit® 43201HP reduces the risk of air entrapment, and allows bubble-free mounting of the clichés, especially when this operation is done manually.
  • The pink colour of the foam aids the quick identification of foam hardness.
