    Mirror Buttons with 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape are a permanent solution for attaching rear view mirrors to automotive glass. 3M™ Structural Bonding Tapes can withstand limited exposure to ambient temperatures without affecting the performance.

    3M™ Structural Bonding Tapes can withstand limited exposure to ambient temperatures without affecting the performance
    The tape's resistance to hot, humid environments gives it excellent image stability
    Mirror Buttons with 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape are a permanent solution for attaching rear view mirrors to automotive glass. 3M™ Structural Bonding Tapes can withstand limited exposure to ambient temperatures without affecting the performance. Mirror Buttons with 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape are customized and developed jointly by 3M and the OEM or Tier design studio for a particular model.

    Strength and Efficiency
    3M™ Structural Bonding Tapes (SBT), the adhesive used with these Mirror Buttons, are formulated for bonding hardware components to glass, such as rear view mirror components, sensor brackets and mounting pins. 3M SBT is applied as a pressure-sensitive tape and then is heat-cured to develop semi-structural strength. It also has excellent holding strength and includes applications for heavier mirrors and multifunction sensors. The tape's resistance to hot, humid environments gives it excellent image stability and reduces reflected image distortion from vehicle vibrations.

    3M™ Structural Bonding Tapes (SBT), the adhesive used with these Mirror Buttons, are formulated for bonding hardware components to glass, such as rear view mirror components, sensor brackets and mounting pins.
    The pre-applied to hardware components are available for increased manufacturing efficiency
    3M SBT's pressure sensitive adhesive feature allows for component application to glass without the need for fixturing during cure. The tape cures to semi-structural strength during most windshield autoclave processes. The pre-applied to hardware components with multiple packaging options are available for increased manufacturing efficiency of both automated and manual processes

    Recommended Applications
    • Bonding brackets
    • Bonding mirror buttons

    Better Science for Better Adhesion from 3M
    Since 1925 when a 3M lab assistant invented masking tape, 3M has been applying science to life — developing adhesive products and technologies that help entire industries and individual businesses worldwide. The work that began with a single 3M engineer now spans decades and generations — and all of it goes into each 3M product developed for automotive OEM, like Mirror Buttons with 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape.
