Low Fogging Adhesive Tested to SAE J1756 Specifications
Our 3M™ Adhesive 300MP (PDF, 11 Kb) is a high-tack acrylic adhesive system featuring high initial adhesion and good humidity, water, solvent, chemical and UV resistance. The formulation gives 3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tape 6038PL a consistently strong bond up to 250°F (221°C). This particular low fogging adhesive tape is tested to SAE J1756 specifications for use in automotive interiors.
Heavy Liner Provides Ease of Handling and Lay-Flat Properties
An 86 lb. polycoated kraft paper liner is moisture stable and provides lay-flat properties that makes this tape ideal for flat-bed die-cutting operations. The thicker caliper of the backing is also helpful for kiss cutting and steel rule die cutting.
Understanding Adhesive Transfer Tapes
3M adhesive transfer tapes are pressure sensitive adhesives coated on a release liner, without a scrim or carrier. These adhesive tapes are more conformable than double coated adhesive tapes for applications with textured or irregular surfaces. For application, the tape is positioned, adhesive side down, to a surface and the liner is removed, exposing the backside of the adhesive to the joining surface.
