- Features two adhesives - one on each side of the tape for effective bonding
- Liner-side adhesive is designed for excellent initial and final adhesion to traditional, LSE and mar-resistant paint systems
- Non-liner-side adhesive bonds to a range of automotive paints and LSEs
- Polyethylene T-liner is silicone-coated on one side, suitable for tabbing
- Black foam tape provides good bond-line appearance
- Conformable closed cell 1.52 mm acrylic foam core delivers stress relaxation under load
3M™ Acrylic Plus Tape EX4015T features two adhesives, one on each side of a 1.52 mm acrylic foam core, designed for robust performance even to complex contours and paint surfaces. Viscoelastic foam core provides stress relaxation when exposed to high application loads and maintains tight bond-line aesthetics under normal conditions. Removable T-liner is good for heat-bond and other PSA tabbing.
Provides robust adhesion to a wide variety of paint systems
Designed for Adherence to Trim Parts and Scratch Optimized Paint Systems
Our 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tape EX4015T
(PDF, 159.3 Kb) is developed specifically for attaching automotive exterior trim parts such as stone chip moldings, fender moldings and wheel arch extensions. It features two different adhesives applied to a durable black acrylic foam core. The liner-side adhesive delivers excellent adhesion to traditional and low surface energy (LSE) surfaces. The non-liner-side adhesive provides very high initial and final adhesion ideal for scratch- and mar-resistant paint systems. The viscoelastic foam core conforms well even to complex geometries. It is engineered for stress relaxation when exposed to high stress loads, and maintains bond-line aesthetics under normal stress loads. The inconspicuous black color of 3M tape EX4015T helps to ensure high satisfaction among consumers. The red, 3M branded liner is silicone-coated on both sides for easy one-piece release and efficient tape application.
