INNOVA 72 Plate Mounting Tape

The INNOVA 72 Flexographic Plate Mounting Tape is a standard adhesive and medium-hard version for wide web flexible packaging printing ensuring ideal printing results even for complex and long print runs. The Innova 72 Mounting Tape has a thickness of 0.55mm.

Adhesion properties for INNOVA 72 

For printing cylinders with repeat lengths over 600mm, Innova 72 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 72H version is safer to use.

Printing Properties for INNOVA 72

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. Innova 72 is one level harder than the 71. It gives it a perfect print performance at 60-90% ink coverage. But if you are uncertain, it can also be helpful to try one level softer with our Innova 71. 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, it is 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. 

General recommendations for Innova 72 Plate 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.
