Make ready

Be fast and save waste! X-Soft plate mounting tape foam comes with a wide impression window, which makes it an ideal partner for printing plates with high screen counts and fine line work.

Free yourself

The absorption is so effective that even bouncing stripes resulting from press vibrations at high speeds are not an issue. Due to its optimized elasticity there is no need to readjust impression settings with changes in speed.

Be consistent

Excellent results from the first to the last copy! The high quality closed cell foam structure ensures consistent results over long print runs. tesa Softprint® X-Soft foam delivers the finest dots and smooth vignettes, with the latest screening technologies even down to zero, copy for copy.
