  • Designed to be easily removed from ink contaminated print plates
  • Has a light medium density foam that is ideal for printing combinations of solids and process with halftone dots
  • Pink foam color indicates the light medium density foam
  • 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 L1915 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
  • Flexographic printing, flexographic printers
  • Cushioned flexographic plate mounting sticky back foam tape

Our 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape L1915 with easy mount adhesive is designed for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. Pink, flexo plate mounting tape has the air release feature adhesive which is tolerant to ink contaminates allowing for easy and clean plate removal.

Bubble Free Flexographic Plate Mounting
3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape L1915 is a pink foam tape that provides high-quality light medium print. It has the air release feature that allows for bubble free mounting. This double coated foam tape has the air release feature with a plate side adhesive technology designed to remove with less force in the presence of ink contaminates on flexographic print plates.

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

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 photopolymer plates. Easy plate removal from tape may result in less worker fatigue and plate damage. 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.
