Posted on Fri, May 25, 2012

Of the many Double Coated Foam Tapes for mounting that 3M Offers, the urethane foam carriers (which are an open-cell foam tape) offer high shear adhesives with high temperature resistance, as well as high tack adhesive.

Product thicknesses vary from 0.8 to 6.4 milimeters (depending on the degree of roughness) and are offered in an off-white color, with some also having the option for a black version of the tape. In addition, all urethane products provide medium solvent resistance.

Some of the potential application ideas for these open cell foam tapes include:

  • Mounting air fresheners, soap dispensers, interior signs and nameplates.
  • Attaching wire clips to various surfaces.
  • Bonding acoustic panels to walls.
  • Mounting an electrical channel to a wall.

These open cell foam tapes are able to fill gaps between irregular surfaces, making tasks such as bonding a plastic sign to a painted cinder block a less-stressful endeavor. Be sure to check out these products (and more) at www.3m.com today!
