  • Yellow, flexo plate mounting tape has air release feature with high plate side adhesion
  • 0.51 mm thickness
  • Medium soft
  • Consistent caliper control allows the printer to use multiple foam densities on a print job to optimise print quality
  • Easy Mount liner, has micro-channels in both adhesive surfaces. The crosshatched pattern allows air to escape from between the tape and cylinder/sleeve and between the tape and plate. The productivity is increased, total handling time is reduced and printing defects are eliminated
  • Print plates mounted on E1320H 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

Mount your photopolymer plate to print cylinders with 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1320H. Our 0.51 mm yellow, double coated foam tape has the air release feature with high plate side adhesion. It is used for high speed printing of combination work when halftone areas exceed solids.

13 Series tapes
13 Series tapes feature microchannels that allow air to release and eliminate bubble problems for easier, virtually air-free mounting
Bubble Free Flexographic Plate Mounting
3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1320H is a yellow foam tape that provides high quality combination print. This is the medium soft 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 20 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.

Keep the Presses Running and your Customers Coming Back
