Stickyback Plate Mounting Tapes

Conversource helps you match the right tapes to your print jobs.

3M offers the broadest selection of plate mounting tapes for virtually any flexographic or rotary letterpress printing application.

 

Offering mounting tapes with either vinyl (hard) or foam (compressible) carriers, the 3M specialty brand can provide the perfect tape for any printing application.

 

SOLID PRINTING:

Vinyl carriers (400 Series tapes) are hard and are best suited for line, solid and reverses.

 

COMBINATION PRINTING:

Foam carriers are available in a range of foam densities, getting progressively softer from Series 18 (firm) to 17, 15, 10, 13, 19, and 12 (light)

 

PROCESS PRINTING:

11-Series - 3M’s softest foam carrier

 

3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tapes

 

For solid ink coverage and crisp lines, you’ll want a high density mounting tape.

  • Best fit - consider 3M Flexomount 400-Series or 3M Cushion-Mount Plus 18-Series tapes.

 

For process printing, halftones, fine screens or vignettes, you need a softer tape to minimize dot gain and ensure optimum printing characteristics.

  • Best fit - consider 3M Cushion-Mount Plus 11-Series.

 

When solids and dots are on the same plate, a combination tape will properly balance the result.  A wide range of mounting tapes can be used for combination printing.

  • Best fit when Solid and Halftones are equally important - consider 3M Cushion-Mount Plus 10-Series.

 

When printing mostly solids, a firm foam density will minimize pin holing.

  • Best fit - consider 3M Cushion-Mount Plus 18-Series.

 

NEW Pro-Series 3M Cushion-Mount Plus Plate Mounting Tape

  • Easier tape removal; highest productivity
  • Low tack; easier plate positioning and mounting
  • Easier plate removal; longer plate life
  • Easy On - Print plates will have no air bubbles under the plate due to the air release feature designed into the tape
  • Grooves in the adhesive are created by a cross-hatch pattern from the release liner
