    Bubble Free Flexographic Plate Mounting
    3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1520H is a purple foam tape that provides high quality medium combination print. It has the air release feature that allows for bubble-free mounting. This tape has excellent resistance to lifting on press allowing for clean plate removal.

    Recommended Applications

    • Mounting photopolymer plates to flexographic printing cylinders and sleeves
    • Used in combination, process and solid printing processes
    • On wide-web presses to print film or paper for flexible packaging industry

    3M flexographic plate mounting tapes are highly engineered to provide very tight caliper tolerance to allow printers to use tape from different manufacturing lots and keep tight print registration. The compressible foam will withstand long and high speed print runs.

    This cushion tape is manufactured for 20 mil applications. It is constructed with engineered acrylic adhesives. The adhesive on the linered (plate) side of the tape is designed for mounting of photopolymer plates. The adhesive on the non-linered (sleeve/cylinder) side is designed for mounting to flexographic printing cylinders or sleeves, providing easy application at mounting and clean removal when demounting.

    On Easy with Reduced Air Entrapment
    3M air release liners have a crosshatched pattern, unlike other mounting tapes that use a pebbled or flat release liner. The embossed crosshatched pattern imprints unique micro-channels into the easy mount adhesive that allows entrapped air to escape. Air bubbles disappear from between the tape and plate, and between the tape and sleeve or cylinder for virtually bubble-free mounting. Setup is faster with smoother surfaces for cleaner print quality and higher productivity. The adhesive maintains tight contact with reduced edge lifting.
