Polyester underpacking foils, self-adhesive

Show in EnglishShow in German

Polyester underpacking foils, self-adhesive
A key feature of the self-adhesive polyester underpacking foils in our Folabase range is their high swell resistance to dampening solution and cleaning agents. They allow adaptation to cylinder circumferences and print lengths in commercial sheet-fed and rotary web presses. The self-adhesive versions facilitate subsequent handling and support automation, particularly in presses
with automatic plate changers. A microgroove, created by the fine lines in the adhesive surface, simplifies mounting on the cylinder and facilitates remounting repositioning during adhesion if this is necessary. The adhesive coating is covered with a protective release paper. Folabase adhesive systems provide impressive heat stability of up to 60° C.

Unlike paper-based underpacking sheets, there is absolutely no thickness reduction with our tear resistant dimensionally stable polyester, even under excessive pressure. Easy disposal of old foils because they contain no PVC.

Genuine Folabase underpacking foils come with the Folabase logo and the imprint“. Only the genuine product offers full production reliability thanks to its proven long-term high quality.

Polyester underpacking foils, non-adhesive

A key feature of the non-adhesive Folabase underpacking foils is their high swell resistance to dampening solution and cleaning agents. Unlike paper-based underpacking sheets, there is absolutely no thickness reduction with this tear resistant and dimensionally stable material, even under excessive pressure. Soiled foils can be cleaned with conventional cleaning agents.

Coating Plates

Show in EnglishShow in German

Folacoat coating plates let you create individual formes tailor-made for the job in no time at all. The coating and non-coating areas are defined by partial removal (stripping) of the non-image areas. The key to a smooth production is the special Folacoat transfer polymer, which has been specially developed to transfer varnish and not ink, so generally speaking, there is no ink build-up at all, even during extremely high print runs. For optimum performance, we recommend combining it with our compressible Folacomp underpacking.

Folex offers several types of universal and and compressibel coating plates.

Folex Grinding Stones

Folex Rotocalco grinding stones for cylinder preparation

To ensure the efficient preparation of gravure printing cylinders, it is indispensable to use suitable abrasive material. Folex Rotocalco grinding and polishing stones have been developed to achieve uniform roughness on different metal surfaces with a moderate expenditure of time and little stone abrasion.

Folex has been manufacturing grinding/polishing stones specially made for finishing copper, chromium and steel for more than 20 years.
