Adhesive on the linered side (plate side) of the tape is designed for mounting of photopolymer plates
Adhesive on the non-linered side (cylinder or sleeve side) of the tape is designed for mounting to flexographic printing cylinder or sleeves
Tan, flexo plate mounting tape provides high-quality process print
Ease of Use
Our 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape 1120 provides high-quality process printing. 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 and 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 and 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.
