3M™ Attachment Tape Selection Guidelines
Claddings, Ground Effects, Wheelflares, Hood Scoops, Side Vents
Unique, black foam core that provides stress relaxation when high application loads are encountered, while maintaining tight bond-line aesthetics under normal conditions
Glass Bonding with Adhesion Promoter
Black high strength core with low elongation properties
Step Plates, Bed Rail Caps, Door Edge Moldings, Wind Deflectors
Gray acrylic foam core tapes provide a balance of conformability and strength with core properties that allow the tape to elongate and relax when put under load, minimizing the stress on the adhesive bondline
Low Surface Energy Plastics (TPO, PP) w/o Adhesion Promoter
TX-1 adhesive is characterized by high peel and shear adhesion to unprimed low surface energy plastics (i.e., TPO, PP).
Weatherstrip Heat Activated Tape (HAT)
The heat activated adhesive on the non-liner side forms an immediate, consistent and durable bond to most EPDM, Santoprene, Kraton and TPV/TPE formulations.
Heat Activated Tape (HAT) for Neoprene
As above for Neoprene, PVC and Alcryn
