3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1515 with easy mount adhesive is designed for mounting flexographic print plates to cylinders or sleeves. This purple foam mounting tape provides high quality medium combination print.

3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1515 is a purple foam tape that provides high quality medium combination print. It has the air release feature that allows for bubble free mounting and has excellent resistance to lifting on press allowing for easy and clean plate removal. 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1515 provides 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. 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tape E1515 is manufactured for 15 mil (0.4 mm) applications and 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.

Suggested Applications

  • Mounting photopolymer plates to flexographic printing cylinders and sleeves
  • Used in combination, process, and solid printing processes
  • Designed for narrow web presses to print tag and labels
