  • Securely bonds the flexographic photopolymer plate to the print sleeve or steel cylinder to prevent plate edge lifting during printing
  • Has higher plate side adhesion for challenging print conditions that use thick plates or small print sleeves
  • Print plates mounted on E1860H 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
  • Plate demounts from the double coated cushioned tape without adhesive residue
  • Tape also removes cleanly from the sleeve or steel print cylinder

  • Cushioned flexographic plate mounting sticky back foam tape

Our 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1860H with easy mount adhesive is designed for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. This blue foam mounting tape provides high quality firm combination print.

Bubble Free Flexographic Plate Mounting 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1860H is a blue foam tape that provides high quality combination print. This is the firm tape for 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 wide-web presses to print film or paper for flexible packaging industry 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 60 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.
