  1. Can the 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1515H hold heavy printing plates?

    Yes, absolutely! The E1515H is designed to easily handle even very large and heavy printing plates with ease.

  2. Is this tape easy to remove and clean without damaging the plate or cylinder surface?

    Yes, it certainly is. 3M has designed the E1515H to stick strongly during use but release cleanly when needed so that your cylinders remain in great condition.

  3. How wide can we cut our print rolls while still being able to use this plate mounting tape?

    No need for concern. With a width of 13 1/2 inches, you will have plenty of room for any common roll size used in printers today. If you are considering using an uncommonly larger roll size then give us a call and we'll gladly advise on whether the sale would be recommended given those conditions.

Bubble Free Flexographic Plate Mounting

3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1515H is a purple foam tape that provides high quality medium combination print. It has the air release feature that allows for bubble free mounting. This tape has excellent resistance to lifting on press allowing for clean plate removal.

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.

On Easy with Reduced Air Entrapment

3M air release liners have a crosshatched pattern, unlike other mounting tapes that use a pebbled or flat release liner. The embossed crosshatched pattern imprints unique micro-channels into the easy mount adhesive that allows entrapped air to escape. Air bubbles disappear from between the tape and plate, and between the tape and sleeve or cylinder for virtually bubble-free mounting. Setup is faster with smoother surfaces for cleaner print quality and higher productivity. The adhesive maintains tight contact with reduced edge lifting.

Keep the Presses Running and Your Customers Coming Back

For decades, 3M products have been at work in printing plants helping to improve the quality of the work that goes out and the efficiency of how it gets done.
