Probak Adhesive Foam

Probak Adhesive Foam was designed and developed by Pro Shim to provide sharper relief and extend the life of printing plates.

It has been used in the corrugated industry since 2001, allowing printers to achieve far better print results whilst also minimising costs.

The unique and innovative design reduces the height of the printing plate and recovers quickly when put under pressure, allowing for faster speeds from press. Probak was redesigned in 2014 to integrate our unique diamond emboss, further enhancing the performance of the product.

Only available from Pro Shim, Probak will give you:

  •   Less dot gain
  •   Cleaner screen work
  •   Sharper relief whilst using the minimum amount of pressure and extending the life of the printing plates
  •   Less friction on the print cylinder which helps the plate carrier slide along the cylinder
  •   Easier repositioning of the plates for registration

Probak has a protective coating which is water and solvent resistant, prolonging the life of the foam and giving optimum results.
