3M ID 70002020298
  • 0.51 mm (0.020 inch) double coated foam tape has the air release feature with a plate side adhesive technology designed to remove with less force from flexographic print plates
  • Has a light density foam that is ideal for printing combinations of solids and process with halftone dots
  • Provides high quality light combination print. The adhesives remove cleanly from the print plate and the print cylinder.
  • Securely bonds the flexographic photopolymer plate to the print sleeve or steel cylinder to prevent plate edge lifting during printing

Details

Our 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1220 with easy mount adhesive is designed for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. This orange foam mounting tape provides high quality light combination print.

Bubble Free Flexographic Plate Mounting
3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1220 is an orange foam tape that provides high quality combination print. This is the tape for light combination print. It has the air release feature that allows for bubble free mounting. This flexographic plate mounting tape has excellent resistance to lifting on press allowing for easy and clean plate removal. 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.

Recommended Applications



Mounting photopolymer plates to flexographic printing cylinders and sleeves

Used in combination, process and solid printing processes

3M sticky back tapes are designed for 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 0.51 mm (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 microchannels 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.

Keep the Presses Running and your Customers Coming Back
For decades, 3M products have been at work in printing plants helping to improve the quality of the work that goes out and the efficiency of how it gets done.
