of hardness (Shore-A) – identification colour please see tampon
The hardness of the tampon is stated
as Shore-A based on DIN 53505. Tampons usually offered have a
hardness between 0 and 18 Shore-A.
1 to 2 Shore-A is considered a soft tampon,
6 Shore-A is considered medium hardness and
12 Shore-A is considered a hard tampon.
18 Shore-A and more is considered a special tampon usually reserved for rotation
tampon printing (tampon rollers), (here 55 shore-A are used)
The medium hard tampon with 6 Shore-A will be recommended as
standard due to experimental research (included with all TAMPOPRINT
standard tampon printing machines).
Tampons are also classified with
the hardness identification Shore-00.
50 Shore-00 = 6 Shore-A.
The advantage of the Shore-00 dimensioning lies in the very
soft range below 0 Shore-A because also here it is still possible
to specify a degree of hardness.

- for sensitive, very fragile surfaces, printing parts
A 1 Shore-A tampon tends to vibrate more easily due to its softness,
which can usually be resolved by reducing the printing speed.
- for strongly convex surfaces
and are often used to reduce the needed printing power that causes
distortion (at max. image size of each pad printing machine).
- for universal application ranges
and come standard with our standard tampon printing machines –
e.g. tampon item No. 084410 for the Sealed Ink Cup 60 E.
and 18 Shore-A tampons are selected:
||Versions of the tampon
- for structured surfaces
- for flat printing parts shapes
- for tampon forms with a low volume
- for use of flat tampon shapes
- for extremely high printing speeds
tend to vibrate less
due to their hardness
high printing power is necessary, ideal: use
mechanically driven tampon printing machines.
