When you want solid ink and crisp lines, you’ll want firm, high density mounting tape. For halftone work where dot gain is a concern, a softer tape optimizes reproduction. And when solids and dots share the plate, a combination tape can properly balance the result.
From the 3M selection of plate mounting tapes, you can find exactly what you expect. And you’ll find choices for meeting your handling and production requirements:
- Mounting ease and positioning accuracy
- Clean removal from plate and cylinder
- Adhesive type and strength
For example, tapes designated with an “E” are Easy Mount products that virtually eliminate air bubbles and edge lifting, yet remove easily without plate damage.
To meet reproduction requirements, the foam carrier gets progressively softer from series 18, 17, 10, 19, and 11.
