Adhesion properties for INNOVA 42H
It is the right choice for all printing cylinders. Because it will hold the plates down and enables plate and tape removal at the same time. Especially if you are using a thin printing plate like 1.14mm.
Printing properties for INNOVA 42H
The choice of the appropriate hardness depends primarily on the ink coverage of the printing plate. A mix of fine lines, solids and halftones with around 20-80% ink coverage requires a medium Plate Mounting Tape like INNOVA 41H. But for anything above 80%, it is recommended to use INNOVA 42H. INNOVA 42H is one level harder than the INNOVA 41H. However, we also suggest taking a look at the printing plate type. Hard printing plates may require softer tape, while other factors are the substrate and ink viscosity. On coated paper, for example, medium tapes will provide the best results. But with most label stock filmic materials, it is safer to use INNOVA 41H. As you know, Flexo Printing has few standards; we recommend a fingerprint test. A fingerprint test is the most scientific way to get to the right combination. INNOVA engineers will be happy to advise you on the right product for the process.
General recommendations for INNOVA 42H Mounting TapeProcessing of our tapes is very simple, but it always works best on cleaned surfaces. For safe use without lifting the plate edges try using a masking tape on the plate edges. Download our "How to use" guide here.
