ORAFLEX® Cushion Mount Tapes The ORAFLEX® Cushion Tapes are produced using odour-free pure solvent acrylate adhesives featuring the latest ORAFLEX® product designs with several adhesive types offering different levels of bonding and repositionability. These adhesives are also designed to be resistant to the typical solvents contained in inks used in flexographic printing.

The ORAFLEX® Cushion Tapes’ compressible foam and film reinforcement construction technology guarantees an optimized thickness accuracy, with minimal thickness tolerances (+/- 0.02 mm). The flexible PE-film reinforcement reduces dot gain by perfect cushioning the applied impression. It is interesting to note that the medium ORAFLEX® Cushion Tapes (1165X) offer a very wide range of linear dot gain making the hardness choice very easy – one medium tape can be used for most combinations and printing requirements.
