Plate Mounting Tapes

Conversource helps you match the right tapes to your print jobs.

3M offers the broadest selection of mounting tapes for virtually any flexographic or rotary letterpress printing application.

 

Offering mounting tapes with either vinyl (hard) or foam (compressible) carriers, the 3M specialty brand can provide the perfect tape for any printing application.

 

Vinyl carriers (4 Series tapes) are hard and are best suited for line, solid and reverses.

 

Foam carriers are available in a range of densities, getting progressively softer from Series 18, 17, 15, 10, 13, 19, 12 and 11 (3M’s softest foam carrier).

Selection Guide

(Available Here)

For solid ink coverage and crisp lines, you’ll want a high density mounting tape.

Likely best fit - consider 3M's 4 Series.

 

For process printing, halftones, fine screens or vignettes, you need a softer tape to minimize dot gain and ensure optimum printing characteristics.

Likely best fit - consider 3M's 11 Series.

 

When solids and dots are on the same plate, a combination tape will properly balance the result.  A wide range of mounting tapes can be used for combination printing.

Likely best fit - consider 3M's 9 Series through 19 Series.

 

When printing at high speed, you'll need a tape with reliable adhesion.

Likely best fit - consider 3M's 15 Series, 13 Series and 12 Series.

Mounting tapes matter and have a significant impact on final print quality.

 

Our service representatives are available to assist you with selecting the right mounting tape for your most challenging print jobs.
