3M Acrylic Foam Double Sided Tape

3M Acrylic Foam

Double Sided Tape features two adhesives, one on each side of a 0.76 mm acrylic foam core, designed for robust performance and shear strength on automotive surfaces such as clear coats. The liner side adhesive is formulated for high initial and final adhesion to rigid clear coat system. The non-liner-side adhesive works on plastics and other common trim materials.

Designed for Attaching a Range of Trim and Components to Clear Coat Systems

Developed specifically for attaching exterior trim and other parts to automotive clear coat systems. This Acrylic Foam Tape contains a .76 mm acrylic foam core with two different adhesives — one for each side of the application. The liner-side adhesive is excellent for bonding to automotive trim and other components. The non-liner-side adhesive is formulated for very high initial and final adhesion to scratch- and mar-resistant paint systems. The viscoelastic foam core conforms well even to complex geometries. It is engineered for stress relaxation when exposed to high stress loads and maintains bond-line aesthetics under normal stress loads. The dark grey colour of 3M Acrylic Foam Double Sided Tape gives a pleasing bond line aesthetic. A red liner printed with the 3M logo provides easy one-piece release for efficient application.

3M recommends the use of 3M Automotive Adhesion Promoter for tape-to-part adhesion with 3M Acrylic Foam Double Sided Tape on all parts, especially plastics such as RIM, TPO, PPO, PP and PC.
