Roof Ditch Clips with 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape permanently adhere retention clips used in the application of roof ditch moldings.
  • Clips are applied at the OEM after electrodeposition (ecoat) and before paint and clear coat processing, using existing OEM paint and coating ovens. These clips are compatible with sealers and can be applied to sealers that are uncured or pre-cured.
  • Cures in OEM paint oven to achieve semi-structural strength.
  • Eliminates holes and welds, as well as reduces rework, water leaks and ergonomic problems associated with t-studs and upturned flanges.
  • Attaches with pressure-sensitive tape, eliminating the need for fixturing and ensuring reliable part placement and clip engagement height for easy molding alignment and reduced rework.
  • Custom clip design allows molding to easily snap into place with low insertion force and allows the ability to service if needed.
