Details

The 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1315 is a 0.015 inch (0.38 mm) yellow, double coated foam tape used in screen and process printing. This tape has an air release feature with high plate side adhesion used to effectively mount flexographic print plates to print cylinders.

Provides high-quality, medium-soft combination print. The adhesive applies easily and removes cleanly from the print plate and the print cylinder for easy set-up and removal.ApplicationsHigh quality halftone and combination printingE-Series adhesive allows easy plate removalNarrow web printingCombination flexographic printingPrint platesFlexographic print platesAdhesion to print cylinders and sleevesEase of Use This tape easily adheres to a print sleeve or cylinder, allowing a printing plate to be mounted in different positions.

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.Improving the Finished ProductSome competitive tapes may leave bubbles or wrinkles which compromise a critical bond between the mounting tape and print plate or between the mounting tape and the sleeve.

Unlike flat or pebbled products, our E-series has unique micro-channels in the adhesive that allow air to escape from between the tape and the cylinder, or sleeve; and between the tape and the plate. Air bubbles disappear for virtually bubble-free mounting. This leads to faster set-up and sm
