Product Details

3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape B1320 is designed for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves, particularly the price-conscious challenges of short runs and frequent changeovers. This yellow plate mounting sticky back foam tape provides high quality medium soft combination print.

Bubble Free Flexographic Plate Mounting3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape B1320 features the air-release plate-side technology of the 3M™ Comply™ Adhesive System for easy application with virtually no air bubbles and more consistent print quality. This 0.51 mm double coated medium soft density yellow foam tape is ideal for high quality medium soft combination print and securely bonds the flexographic photopolymer plate to the print sleeve or steel cylinder to prevent plate edge lifting during printing. This flexographic plate mounting tape has no reinforcement layer so it can expand and contract on thin-walled sleeves, which also helps decrease air bubbles. 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape B1320 is constructed with engineered acrylic adhesives for 20 mil applications. The adhesive on the linered (plate) side of the tape is designed for mounting photopolymer plates. The adhesive on the non-linered (sleeve/cylinder) side is designed for mounting to flexographic printing cylinders or sleeves. On Easy with Reduced Air EntrapmentUnlike flat or pebbled liners, B-Series liners are crosshatched. This imprints unique microchannels into the adhesive that allow air to flow throughout the adhesive. Air bubbles disappear from between the tape and plate for virtually bubble-free plate mounting. Setup is faster with smoother surfaces for cleaner print quality and higher productivity. The adhesive maintains tight contact with reduced edge lifting. Understanding Flexographic Plate Mounting Tapes3M flexographic plate mounting tapes are highly engineered to provide very tight caliper tolerance to allow flexographic printers to use tape from different manufacturing lots and keep tight print registration. The compressible foam will withstand long and high-speed print runs Keep the Presses Running and your Customers Coming BackFor decades, 3M products have been at work in paper mills and printing plants helping to improve the quality of the work that goes out and the efficiency of how it gets done.
