3M™ Pressure Sensitive Acrylic Foam Tape 5845 is a 1.14 mm (0.045 in) thick, gray, double-coated acrylic foam tape designed for the attachment of automotive exterior trim parts such as body side moldings.
Unique foam core that provides stress relaxation when high application loads are encountered, while maintaining tight bond-line aesthetics under normal conditions.
3M AFT 5845 is a medium-density foam tape providing a balance of conformability and strength. The acrylic foam core has unique viscoelastic properties that allow it to elongate and relax when put under a load, thereby minimizing stress on the adhesive bond line. 3M AFT 5845 has AR-7 adhesive on both sides of the product for a high level of adhesion to both the automotive paint and exterior trim part. The level of adhesion that AR-7 adhesive delivers to some trim components may eliminate the need for adhesion promoter.
Since product performance will depend on actual conditions within a specific application, it is essential that the user evaluate the 3M product to determine whether it is fit for a particular material purpose and suitable for the user’s method of application.
