Details

Our 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape L1820 with easy mount adhesive is designed for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. This foam mounting tape provides high quality standard combination print.

This 0.020 inch (0.51 mm) double coated foam tape has the air release feature with a plate side adhesive technology designed to remove with less force in the presence of ink contaminates on flexographic print plates.

  • Offers excellent adhesion to both rubber and photopolymer plates
  • Proprietary crosshatch design creates unique microchannels in the adhesive that cause air bubbles to disappear from bettwen the tape and plate, meaning faster setup and cleaner print quality
  • Ideal for printing combinations of solids and process with halftone dots
  • Securely bonds the flexographic photopolymer plate to the print sleeve or steel cylinder to prevent plate edge lifting during printing
  • Developed for plates that are cleaned with auto-plate washers
  • Tape stays on securely during press runs, yet removes cleanly from the print plate and cylinder afterwards, especially on wide plates
