Plate lift is a pretty common problem especially in narrow web printing. I have never tried using hot melt. Have tried what everyone else has mentioned, primer, foil tape, black marker, heat gun. Technology has improved over the years on plate mounting tape. I have tested many brands. But I have always stuck with 3M 1115 and Tesa 52017. If you are having problems with plate lift, I would highly recommend Tesa 52017. Note that it is important to clean the back of the plate with 100% isopropyl alcohol before mounting the plate to the print cylinder.
