3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape 5344 is a pressure sensitive 1.14 mm (0.045 in) thick, gray, double-coated acrylic foam tape commonly used for the attachment of automotive exterior trim parts such as body side moldings.
3M AFT 5344 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 5344 has AR-7 adhesive on the liner side of the product for bonding to automotive paint surfaces, and DS-4 adhesive on the nonlinear side of this product for bonding to the exterior trim part. 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.
