3M Corrugated Tapes

You are challenged to make products and processes better. 3M have the science to help. Borrow from one technology, such as one of their vast tape formulations, combine it with cross-linking chemistry and create a fast-tack, strong holding water-based adhesive. 3M infused viscoelastic foam with their unique adhesives to create an amazingly strong, easy-to-use bonding tape. They took ordinary elastomeric materials and developed a proprietary high-strength matrix so you can create more impact-resistant products. These are just a few of the ways 3M connect their technology to their ideas. So bring your requirements – for strength, fit, flex, impact, aesthetics, noise, weight, speed, assembly and more – and we’ll bring 3M’s science to help you meet your challenges – large and small.

Understanding Adhesive Transfer Tapes

3M adhesive transfer tapes are rolls of pressure sensitive adhesive provided on a special release liner. The tape consists of an adhesive layer only, and does not have any type of supporting carrier such as film, paper or tissue. For application the tape is positioned adhesive side down to a surface and the liner is removed, exposing the backside adhesive to the joining surface.

3M™ Thin Flexographic Mounting Tape 2205 is a 5 mil, double coated film tape with differential acrylic adhesives on a polyester film carrier with a polycoated kraft paper liner. This tape is specifically designed for the corrugated printing business to hold flexographic print plates to PVC saddles/carriers.

On Easy with Reduced Air Entrapment
3M™ Thin Flexographic Mounting Tape 2205 features the 3M air release liner, which has 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.

Recommended Applications

  • Mounting flexographic corrugated post print plates to PVC saddles/carriers and PET saddles/carriers

What is Double Coated Tape?
In general, double coated tape is composed of a paper, film or tissue carrier that is coated on both sides with pressure sensitive adhesive. The adhesive is protected by a peel-away liner that can be removed at the time of application or left in place until the joining surfaces are ready to be attached. These tapes can be applied by hand or with a dispenser. Double coated tape dispensers are available in a variety of configurations ranging from manual to fully automatic. Applications for double coated tape are found in construction, fabrication, arts, and hobby.
