3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tape 91022 and 3M™ Double Coated Tape 96042 are designed with a 2-mil pressure sensitive silicone adhesive that adheres on contact, without priming, to hard-to-bond surfaces such as silicone rubbers and foams, polypropylene, polyethylene and other low-surface-energy materials. The tapes hold with high shear and good peel strength, resulting in a high initial bond for immediate part processing. Gleicher Manufacturing Corporation makes the bonding process quick and easy by tailors the adhesive to the exact shape and size needed. With excellent high temperature performance and reliable solvent resistance, these products can help converters and OEMs meet their design challenges.
