Flexographic Printing

The broadest foam density selection in the flexographic printing market enables you to print the finest quality at fastest print speeds. Balancing your vignettes and solids made easy for customer satisfaction. In the Flexographic Printing industry the printing plate mounting is a critical step in achieving optimum print quality. 3M™ Cushion-Mount™ Plus Plate Mounting Tapes guarantee easiest plate mounting to cylinders or sleeves.

From the wide 3M product selection, you can find the adhesives, foams, and thicknesses for the print quality that your customers demand and expect. For halftone work where dot gain is a concern, a softer tape optimizes reproduction. When solids and dots share the plate, a combination tape can properly balance the result. When our customer requires solid ink and crisp lines, you’ll want a firm high-density mounting tape.
