3M Double Sided Tapes


Key benefits of double sided tapes

  • 3M has been an industry leader in adhesives for decades. Our double sided tapes combine our latest adhesive technologies with a format that's as simple as the first masking tapes, making them excellent for use in unique thin-bonding challenges. Strong, durable and resistant to chemicals and temperatures, our double-sided adhesive tapes can deliver reliable bonds. Our pressure-sensitive acrylic tapes bond specific metals and plastics, similar or dissimilar – without the time and equipment required for curing.

Key Benefits

    Resists moisture and helps reduce stress

    Tapes are available with a range of adhesives that resist moisture and humidity even on textured surfaces. Used in conjunction with or in place of mechanical fasteners, adhesive tapes can help eliminate stress concentration-related substrate failures on flat modules or plates. Durable film carriers resist chemicals and high temperatures.

Key benefits for the design engineer

  • 3M double sided tapes provide new ways to help solve thin bonding challenges. These tapes feature adhesive chemistries on both sides of the tape, allowing for bonds to dissimilar metal and plastic substrates. Adhesive transfer tapes allow for consistent application of adhesive across broad areas without an adhesive carrier. Our double-sided tapes can be easily die-cut to meet the needs of your design.
