3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape 1015 is designed for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. This white foam mounting tape provides high quality standard combination print.

Recommended Applications

  • Mounting photopolymer plates to flexographic printing cylinders and sleeves
  • Used in combination, process and solid printing processes
  • 3M sticky back tapes are designed for narrow web presses to print tag and labels

3M flexographic plate mounting tapes are highly engineered to provide very tight caliper tolerance to allow printers to use tape from different manufacturing lots and keep tight print registration. The compressible foam will withstand long and high speed print runs.

This cushion tape is manufactured for 15 mil applications. It is constructed with engineered acrylic adhesives. The adhesive on the linered (plate) side of the tape is designed for mounting of photopolymer plates. The adhesive on the non-linered (sleeve/cylinder) side is designed for mounting to flexographic printing cylinders or sleeves, providing easy application at mounting and clean removal when demounting.
