- General-purpose tape for jobs requiring high tack, balanced peel and shear strength
- Acrylic adhesive on face side delivers excellent adhesion to low surface energy substrates
- Rubber-based adhesive on liner side bonds to foams, rubber and plastics
- White polyester film carrier adds dimensional stability and improved handling
- 74# DK liner adds strength during processing
3M™ Double Coated Tape 9817M features two different adhesives: a face side acrylic adhesive bonds to LSE surfaces, and a liner-side rubber adhesive bonds to open- and closed-cell foams, rubber, polyester and many plastics. This 3.3 mil tape adheres immediately and delivers good heat resistance. A 74# densified kraft liner adds moisture resistance and dimensional stability for rotary die-cutting.
General purpose, high tack, rubber-based adhesive
A Balanced and Economical Tape for General-Purpose Industrial Applications
With a nominal thickness of 3.3 mils, our 3M™ Double Coated Tape 9817M
(PDF, 13.54 Kb) is a general-purpose industrial tape that features two different adhesives for a range of low surface energy and high surface energy substrates. Its face side adhesive is an acrylic PSA which provides quick stick and long term adhesion to challenging surfaces. The liner side features an aggressive rubber-based adhesive that forms an immediate bond to most open cell urethane and closed cell urethane foams, polyester, polyester urethane, polyethylene, polystyrene, vinyl foams and most rubbers. A white polyester film carrier adds dimensional stability, and provides easier handling. The 74-lb. densified kraft paper liner adds dimensional strength for effective slitting and rotary die-cutting, and protects against humidity during storage. 3M™ Double Coated Tape 9817M has been tested for heat resistance from 175°F/80°C for short periods, and 120°F/49°C long term.
What are Double Coated Tapes?
- General purpose foam and rubber lamination
- General purpose lamination for fabricated parts
- Metals and high surface energy plastics
In general, double coated tape is composed of a paper, film, or tissue carrier that is coated on both sides with pressure sensitive adhesive. The adhesive is protected by a peel-away liner that can be removed at the time of application or left in place until the joining surfaces are ready to be attached. These tapes can be applied manually or automatically. Applications for double coated tape are found in construction, transportation, medical and general industrial markets.
