Mount your photopolymer plate to print cylinders with 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1820. Our 0.51 mm blue, double coated foam tape has the air release feature with easy plate side removal. It is used for plates that contain mostly solids in a combination of solid and halftone images.
3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1820 with easy mount adhesive is created for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. It provides high quality for work containing mostly solids in a combination of solid and halftone images. Our Easy Mount liner creates micro-channels in both adhesive surfaces. The crosshatched pattern creates a continuous and permanent network of micro-channels in the adhesive, allowing air to escape from between the tape and cylinder/sleeve and between the tape and plate. The adhesive on the linered side (plate side) of the tape is designed for mounting photopolymer plates, has excellent holding power on-press and clean plate removal when demounting. The adhesive on the non-linered side (cylinder side) of the tape is designed for mounting to flexographic printing cylinders or sleeves, providing easy application when mounting and clean removability while demounting.
