3M™ Adhesion Promoter K520UV is a liquid promoter used to improve the adhesion of 3M™ Acrylic Foam and Acrylic Plus Tapes to Polyolefin-based substrates such as thermoplastic olefins (TPO), Polypropylene (PP), and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber.
These new promoters have been formulated to significantly reduce the hazardous air pollutant (HAPS)
Even the best products can use a bit of assistance on occasion, and that's the idea behind our 3M™ Adhesion Promoter K520UV. It's designed to help our 3M™ Acrylic Foam and Acrylic Plus Tapes adhere to substrates which are typically difficult to form an adhesive bond against. This includes surfaces to Polyolefin-based substrates such as thermoplastic olefins (TPO), Polypropylene (PP) and EPDM rubber. This acetone solvent dries fast to maximize work time and eliminate downtime. It contains a fluorescent dye that makes it easily visible once applied, and helps technicians to quickly verify that coverage is complete and consistent for a reliable bond. Since formulations and surface energies vary for these materials, each application should be verified through testing.
Better Science for Better Adhesion from 3M
Since 1925 when a 3M lab assistant invented masking tape, 3M has been applying science to life — developing adhesive products and technologies that help entire industries and individual businesses worldwide. The work that began with a single 3M engineer now spans decades and generations and all of it goes into each 3M product developed for automotive OEM, like 3M™ Adhesion Promoter K520UV.
