About 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape 9259
Our 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape forms an exceptionally reliable bond which can help minimize consumer-related warranty issues. 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape 9259 (PDF, 43.48 Kb) is a white 1 mm thick epoxy-modified acrylic foam tape formulated for bonding metal or plastic to e-coat, primer or sealer. The tape features a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) which allows for immediate attachment and fixturing, eliminating common alignment problems. It is then heat cured to develop structural strength for a long-term bond, so there's no need to form metal flanges or stamp holes for T-studs in sheet metal.
