Plate mounting sleeve with fibreglass coating for use with double-sided adhesive cushion tapes. The intermediate layer between the base sleeve and the outer coating is made of Honeycomb. Its very low density enables a reduction in sleeve weight up to 70% if compared to a traditional sleeve of equal dimensions. The mechanical characteristics of the Honeycomb guarantee a reduction/absorption of typical stroke vibrations in flexographic printing.

Sleeve totally encapsulated in fibreglass. The fibreglass side flanges guarantee total resistance against humidity and solvent penetration. The intermediate layer is made of Honeycomb, material used in the aeronautical industry with a very low density and high structural strength.
