3M Cushion-Mount Plus Plate Mounting Tapes, L-Series

3M L series

Project Info

Description

As customers demand higher print quality, you want to ensure that your plates are performing at their peak. 3M understands the importance of process optimization and lean manufacturing practices for digital printing workflows. That’s why the cutting-edge L-Series of 3M’s flexographic mounting tapes are designed to give you better solid ink, process, and combination printing, combined with easier handling. So you can keep your plates, and your profits, secure.

Put the power of intelligent adhesive to work for flexo

Faster, cleaner mounting

3M’s proprietary crosshatch design creates micro channels in the adhesive that cause air bubbles to disappear from between the tape and plate, meaning faster setup and cleaner print quality for your customers. Better outcomes, and easier to use.

Better hold

3M Cushion-Mount Plus Plate Mounting Tapes, L-Series’ specially formulated adhesive limits edge lift for a more secure run, even on small repeats.

Easier removal

Our innovative tapes stay on during press runs yet remove cleanly from the print plate and cylinder afterward, especially on wide plates. This significantly reduces cleanup time and tearing, which can be very costly.

A better tape means better results:

Intelligent adhesive saves you time

Virtually eliminates edge lifting while printing, but removes without plate damage or tape tearing.

Air release mounting tape technology

Our patented crosshatch design releases air bubbles automatically, for faster, smoother mounting.

A broad range of product options

Available in a variety of adhesives, foams and thickness for better print quality, for every challenge.
