Your choice of cushion-mounting tape is crucial to achieving high-quality printing whether it’s on boxes, shopping bags, beverage cartons or labels.
The improvement in print quality using an open-cell cushion mounting product is shown below:
Open-cell, cushion-mounting materials have a greater resistance to compression set compared to typical closed-cell products. Compression set is defined as the ability of the product to return to its original thickness after being compressed. Open-cell materials typically hold 97 percent of their original thickness even after one million impressions while the closed-cell products typically maintain 70-90 percent of their original thickness. This means that open-cell foams will provide the most consistent print results over long runs while making little or no adjustments. Closed-cell products require multiple adjustments due to loss of impression.
