3M™ Adhesion Promoter 4296T is a liquid primer used for enhancing the adhesion of 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes to RIM materials, TPU and high solids paints in automotive applications. Adhesion promoter is ready to use and is ideal for helping attach exterior trim components, seals and badges to automotive exteriors including fascia paints. It dries in as little as 45 seconds for speed and efficiency.
These new promoters have been formulated to significantly reduce the hazardous air pollutant (HAPS)
A Versatile and Easy to Use Adhesion Promoter for Fascia Paints, RIM and TPU
Formulated specifically for use with 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes, our 3M™ Adhesion Promoter 4296T improves the adhesion of the tape to painted surfaces in automotive applications. The ready-to-use solution is specially formulated for use with 3M automotive attachment tape, and is excellent for interior and exterior applications using raw RIM and TPU along with high-solids automotive paints such as those used on fascia. It can be applied by a pressurized flow gun, knurled roller or similar applicator. The liquid primer dries in 45 to 70 seconds for fast and efficient application. Once the product is dry, it is ready to accept the attachment tape. The adhesion promoter can also be cleaned from most surfaces using an acetone solvent or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK). Please note: when using solvents for cleanup, use the precautionary measures recommended in the SDS and on the product label for the solvent. Also, consult local air quality regulations that may regulate solvent and product use.
3M™ Adhesion Promoter 4296T is specifically formulated to be used with 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes and 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tapes for automotive applications. Each application should be verified through testing.
