10 3 Uniform contact of all surfaces –Less over-impression to compensate for non- uniformities (entrapped air) –Improved registration due to more consistent plate/tape thickness (no air entrapment) –Higher print quality On Easy – The Print Quality Advantage

11 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 On Easy – The Print Quality Advantage Air bubble

12 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 On Easy Mounts quickly and easily with virtually no air bubbles –Increased mounting productivity –Increased on-press productivity –Higher print quality

13 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Stays On

14 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Stays On New adhesive systems resists plate edge lifting Unique combination of resistance to plate lifting and easy removal

15 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 * Plate Lift is measured in mm of separation of an 0.067” plate from tape mounted on a 3” OD cylinder, conditioned for 48 hours at 120F. Stays On

16 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Stays On Excellent resistance to plate lift –Reduced downtime –Increased productivity –Improved print quality

17 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Off Easy

18 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Off Easy Demounts quickly and easily with no plate damage

19 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 * Photopolymer plate removal force is measured by conditioning an 0.067” plate sample on tape for 72 hr at 120F. The removal force of the photopolymer plate is then measured at a typical removal rate. Off Easy

21 3 Off Easy Demounts quickly and easily with no plate damage –Reduced cost –Increased productivity

22 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Mounting Tips and Techniques Optimizing Adhesion Performance

23 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Mounting Tips and Techniques Cylinder/Sleeve Cleaning 1.Clean cylinder with isopropyl alcohol/water and wipe dry with dry cloth 2.Consult sleeve manufacturer for recommended cleaning procedures 3.Surface must be DRY prior to mounting tape

24 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Mounting Tips and Techniques Tape Application 1.E-Series allow easy application to cylinder with virtually NO AIR BUBBLES 2.Apply even pressure with heel of hand to ensure uniform contact of tape to cylinder/sleeve

25 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Mounting Tips and Techniques Plate Cleaning 1.Clean plate backs with isopropyl alcohol/water solution (50:50) 2.New plates must be cleaned to remove photopolymer residue 3.Surface Preparation = OPTIMUM ADHESION

26 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Mounting Tips and Techniques Plate Mounting 1.E-Series allows easy application of plate to tape with virtually NO AIR BUBBLES 2.Use ROLLER to roll down entire plate (image, floor, and especially lead and trail edges) 3.Must have intimate contact of plate to adhesive 4.Intimate contact = OPTIMUM ADHESION

27 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Mounting Tips and Techniques Edge Sealing Increase bond to prevent plate lifting Prevent ink or solvent from undercutting plate edges Primer Permanent marker 2. Jet-melt™ adhesive 3. Single-sided tapes

28 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Mounting Tips and Techniques Plate Demounting “Low and Slow”

29 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Mounting Tips and Techniques Plate Demounting 1.“Low and Slow” technique DOES NOT apply! 2.Remove plate at natural angle (90º) 3.Remove plate at natural speed 4.Slow = highest adhesion 5.Faster = easier removal

30 Flexographic Tapes 3M Industrial Business 3 Optimizing On-Press Performance Surface preparation + Intimate contact = Optimal Adhesion Performance – Reduced plate lifting due to plate contamination or inadequate contact with adhesive –Virtually no air bubbles due to over impression on-press –Easy plate removal (no contamination, no solvent penetration)
