The “Bonding Engineers” of Lohmann have developed a new plate mounting tape (DuploFLEX® 5 EB) for the graphical industry.

The plate mounting tape is launched at the Drupa, which takes place from the 31st May until the 10th June in Dusseldorf, Germany. The DuploFLEX® 5 EB („Engineered Bonding“) range combines all features of the proven DuploFLEX® 5 mounting tapes with new, product-specific properties. The basis is Lohmann‘s in-house development of a new adhesive designed specifically for these products. Since the possibilities in flexographic printing are greater than ever and the expectations on the part of customers for perfect printing results are equally high, the choice of the right plate mounting tape is a key factor for the flexographic printer.

Acting as a substructure and a damping factor, the foam tape must also facilitate an optimal printed image. All this is possible with the DuploFLEX® 5 EB range. The tape is especially resistant to solvents and possesses a greater scope in respect to heat and humidity. DuploFLEX® 5 EB does not only adhere on printing cylinders of different sizes, but is also easy to remove and reposition – without losing its high printing quality. In addition, it is resistant to solvents and possesses a greater scope in respect to heat and humidity.

When it comes to an especially challenging print job (e.g. small cylinder size or hard printing plates), DuploFLEX 5 EBX comes into play. The DuploFLEX 5 EB and EBX range is suitable for a wide variety of foams, from very soft to very hard, with a maximum width of 1.380mm and above all offers one thing: best handling under difficult conditions. Thus, Lohmann again goes one step ahead in the development of suitable products for flexographic printing.
