Details

3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape L1320 with easy mount adhesive is designed for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. This yellow plate mounting sticky back foam tape provides high quality medium soft combination print.

Bubble Free Flexographic Plate Mounting
An air release feature with plate side adhesive technology allows 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape L1320 to remove with less force in the presence of ink contaminates on flexographic print plates. This 0.51 mm (0.020 inch) double coated medium soft density yellow foam tape is ideal for high quality medium soft combination print and securely bonds the flexographic photopolymer plate to the print sleeve or steel cylinder to prevent plate edge lifting during printing. Notably, this flexographic plate mounting tape has excellent resistance to lifting on press and is tolerant to ink contaminates, allowing for easy and clean plate removal.

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™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape L1320 is constructed with engineered acrylic adhesives for 0.51 mm (20 mil) applications. The adhesive on the linered (plate) side of the tape is designed for mounting photopolymer plates. Easy plate removal from tape may result in less worker fatigue and plate damage. 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
Unlike flat or pebbled liners, E-Series liners are crosshatched. This imprints unique microchannels into the adhesive that allow air to flow throughout the adhesive. Air bubbles disappear from between the tape and plate, and between the tape and cylinder or sleeve 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.

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