INNOVA 73 Plate Mounting Tape

Adhesion Properties for INNOVA 73
For printing cylinders with repeat lengths, over 600mm INNOVA 73 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 thin printing plate-like 1.14mm. That means for thicker plates and smaller sleeves the INNOVA 73H version is safer to use.
Printing properties for INNOVA 73
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 69. But solid areas with 100% ink coverage require a hard tape like INNOVA 73. It gives it a perfect print performance above 80% ink coverage. But if you are uncertain, it can be helpful also to try one level softer with our INNOVA 72. The majority of press runs get ideal results with one of the three medium adhesive tapes. That is why most customers use INNOVA 70, 71 and 72. 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. This 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 73 Mounting TapeProcessing 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.
