  • Long lasting recovery characteristic for extended and high speed print runs
  • Low thickness tolerances for quick print preparation and reduced waste

Adhesive properties

  • High bonding on open side to steel cylinder or sleeve to avoid plate movement
  • Sufficient bonding to plate to avoid edge lifting or plate movement
  • Non increasing, controlled bonding power for easy repositioning and especially for easy demounting of thinner plates
  • Very cohesive adhesive structure for demounting without adhesive residues

Additional properties

  • The structured PP-liner prevents the formation of air pockets when plate mounting
