In focus: 3M™ Heat Activated Acrylic Foam Tapes
High performance, heat-activated acrylic foam tapes from 3M offer a superior option for bonding elastomeric and rubber profiles. The heated lamination process delivers a homogenous bond along the entire surface of the seal or trim, guarding against the intrusion of dust, moisture, noise and other external influences. The result is a tight, durable bond that reduces the risk of corrosion and provides enhanced sound insulation.
