How to use 3M double-sided tape for better adhesion?

3M double-sided tape is becoming increasingly popular, but many people still don't know how to use it correctly. For example, during the process of using 3M double-sided tape, many users simply tear off the protective film and press a few times thinking it's that simple. However, the reality is that without even pressure, the likelihood of the tape coming off will significantly increase. Below, we will share the correct way to apply 3M double-sided tape for a more effective adhesion.


1. Before applying the tape, keep the substrate, tape, and application roller at the same temperature for a period of time.

2. Before applying the tape, make sure that the plate and the application roller are clean.

3. If applying the tape on a sleeve, use low air pressure to prevent sleeve deformation.

4. The joint of the double-sided tape should be staggered with the joint of the plate.

5. When applying the tape, use a rubber scraper to evenly apply the tape to the roller in a parallel sweeping motion. Avoid leaving air bubbles between the tape and the roller surface. If there are any air bubbles, use a needle to puncture and eliminate them.

6. Avoid early contact between the plate and the tape before determining the printing position. After determining the printing position, remove the protective layer of the tape and use a rubber roller in a parallel sweeping motion to apply the plate onto the tape.

7. When cleaning the plate during the printing process, avoid solvent contact with the tape to prevent damage.

8. When removing the plate from the tape, the angle between the plate and the tape should not exceed 90 degrees.

9. Leave around 5mm at the plate joint area. Using 3M 1600 electrical insulation tape can effectively prevent ink contamination caused by plate interface curling during plate wiping, and it is also cost-effective.

10. Excessive and repeated use of double-sided tape can result in poor register, especially when a set of plates includes new and old ones.

From the specific instructions above, we can see that the better the attention to detail in using 3M double-sided tape, the better the results will be.
