Mark Andy Print Products Offers New tesa Softprint Secure Tape Line

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

St. Louis, Missouri - Mark Andy Print Products, the supplies and consumables division of Mark Andy Inc., has announced the addition of the tesa Softprint® Secure plate mounting tapes to its offering of top-performing pressroom products.

Label and packaging printers face many challenges to maximizing their process efficiencies without the loss of quality. Reducing downtime and waste created in prepress processes is essential as is the ability to work at higher press speeds. Consequently identifying technology that improves these functions is a necessity to every profitable pressroom today.

tesa Softprint® Secure is designed to handle two major challenges for narrow web printers: plate lift and long run lengths. With the newly developed adhesives on both the plate roll/sleeve and plate side of the double-sided foam tape series, it effectively prevents plate lift on small repeat cylinders and sleeves while maintaining a strong, secure bond. Softprint® Secure plate mounting tapes are the ideal solution for faster printing speeds and longer print jobs as well as suitable where plates are mounted with minimal seams. Securely holding down the plates leads to less edge-lifting which in turn results in less downtime and waste.

SNAP-ON Feature 
tesa Softprint® Secure plate mounting tapes don’t just hold down plate edges effectively. tesa engineers have developed a bonding agent which also offers easy plate mounting and demounting characteristics. This SNAP-ON adhesive is patented by tesa for its unique chemical formulation.

Mark Andy Print Products is the official and leading distributor of the tesa Softprint® Secure tape for narrow web. The consumables division of Mark Andy Inc. has immediate availability of all narrow web sizes and hardness levels (hard, medium, soft) in blue, red and yellow-logoed rolls.
