3M flexographic plate mounting tapes are designed with precision to provide printers with the ability to use tape from different manufacturing lots while maintaining tight print registration. The compressible foam can withstand long and high-speed print runs, making it a reliable choice for printing professionals.

This cushion tape is specifically manufactured for 20 mil applications and is constructed with engineered acrylic adhesives. The adhesive on the linered (plate) side of the tape is designed for mounting photopolymer plates, while the adhesive on the non-linered (sleeve/cylinder) side is designed for mounting to flexographic printing cylinders or sleeves. This provides easy application at mounting and clean removal when demounting.

For decades, 3M products have been trusted by printing professionals to improve the quality of their work and increase efficiency in their printing plants. Keep your presses running smoothly and your customers coming back with 3M flexographic plate mounting tapes.
