    Product Description

    INNOVA 72H Plate Mounting Tape

    The INNOVA 72H Flexographic Plate Mounting Tape is the high adhesive and medium-hard version for wide web flexo printing, ensuring ideal printing results even for complex and long print runs. This Plate Mounting Tape has a thickness of 0.55mm.

    The small roll size of 8 m length is a sample roll. You can buy this when ordering first time to try our products.

    The full log roll of gives the customer the option to cut into any required size. We can do this for you on request with no extra cost.

    Adhesion properties for INNOVA 72H

    For printing cylinders with repeat lengths below 600mm, INNOVA 72H is the right choice. Because it will hold the plates down and enables easy plate and tape removal at the same time. Especially if you are using a thick printing plate-like 1.7mm. That means for thinner plates and larger sleeves. The INNOVA 72 version is safer to use.

    Printing properties for INNOVA 72H

    The choice of the appropriate hardness depends primarily on the ink coverage of the printing plate. Fine lines and ink coverage up to 20% require a soft Plate Mounting Tape like INNOVA 69H. But solid areas with 100% ink coverage require a hard tape like INNOVA 73H. INNOVA 72H is one level harder than the 71H. It gives it a perfect print performance at 60-90% ink coverage. But if you are uncertain, it can be helpful to also to try one level softer with our INNOVA 71H. The majority of press runs get ideal results with one of the three medium adhesive tapes. That is why most customers use INNOVA 70H-72H. However, we also recommend taking a look at the printing plate type. Hard printing plates may require softer tape. Other factors are the substrate and ink viscosity. On uncoated paper, soft tapes will provide the best results. But with PE-film, it is safer to go with medium hardness. Because Flexo Printing has few standards, we recommend a fingerprint test. The 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 72H Mounting Tape

    Processing our tapes is very simple, but it always works best on cleaned surfaces. For safe use without lifting the plate edges, try using masking tape on the plate edges. Download our "How to use" guide here.
