Applications High quality halftone and combination printing E-Series adhesive allows easy plate removal Narrow web printing Combination flexographic printing Print plates Flexographic print plates Adhesion to print cylinders and sleeves Ease of Use This tape easily adheres to a print sleeve or cylinder, allowing a printing plate to be mounted in different positions. Set up is simple; just clean your print plate according to the manufacturer recommendations followed by a 50-50 mixture of isopropyl alcohol-water. Wipe the plate dry with a clean cloth. Apply the plate mounting tape using even hand pressure or use a roller to ensure uniform contact to the cylinder or sleeve. Remove the release liner and apply print plate to the tape. Use a roller to apply pressure while rolling down the plate. Be sure to carefully roll down the leading and trailing edge of the plate. Similarly, removal is clean and easy. The print plate separates cleanly from the tape and the tape removes cleanly from the print sleeve or cylinder to keep operations running smoothly.
3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1315 with easy mount adhesive is created for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. It provides high quality for high speed printing of combination work when halftone areas exceed solids. 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.
