3. Wait 20 seconds

CDA forms a cushion to mount and demount the sleeves smoothly. Waiting approx. 20 seconds to allow this air to escape ensures proper mounting.



4. Dry before use

Allow the sleeves to dry as using a wet sleeve may cause the tape to not stick properly, resulting in substandard prints.



5. Avoid silicon spray

Avoiding silicon spray in the prepress department helps the tape stick better.



6. Spread force

Avoid exerting excessive pressure towards the edges of the plate or tape while demounting it.



7. Cutting knife

The positioning of the cutting knife in a slight angle on the tape ensures a tight fit.



8. Clean before use

Clean the sleeve before use to remove the dust particles as it can prevent proper adhesion of the tape.
