When it comes to flexographic printing, selecting the best sticky back can make all the difference. Read on for some advice and reach out to us at the Englewood Company for help in finding the perfect tape for your flexo printing operation.
When it comes to flexo printing, and most things in life for that matter, efficiency is key. An efficient flexo printing process leads to less waste and ultimately lower operation costs. A good, quality sticky back is efficient and minimizes wasted time. You want your tape to be as consistent as possible so you can spend time focusing on other aspects of the printing process. The right plate mount tape makes it easier for you to address other variables within the printing process.
Your first instinct may be that the adhesive needs to be as sticky as possible. However, this isn’t actually the case. Sticky back needs to be strong enough to secure the mounting plates, but not so strong that the plates tear or are difficult to remove. Good flexo printing tape is designed with enough adhesive to hold the plate down and prevent edge lift while also being low tack for easy repositioning.
The most perfect, highest-quality of tape in the world won’t do you much good if it isn’t easy to use. At the Englewood Company, we believe that the best plate mount tape is quick and easy to select. We believe that because our tape has an advanced foam structure which allows for consistency across the printing process.

Consistent, quality sticky back will enable you to reduce your inventory, prevent confusion, lower variability, and improve your bottom line. The more consistent and more broadly applicable your tape is from print to print, the more valuable it is to your operation.
