    An ideal attachment tape for rigid clear coat paint systems

    • Developed specifically for attaching exterior trim and other parts to automotive paint surfaces, our 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tape PT1500 is 1.52 mm thick and features an acrylic foam core with two different adhesives.

      1. 3M Branded liner
      Easy to identify, difficult to imitate: The red, 3M branded liner on 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tapes allows customers to quickly confirm that they are receiving the 3M quality they expect from their purchase.

      2. Liner side adhesive
      The liner side adhesive is formulated for very high initial and final adhesion to rigid automotive clear coats as well as many scratch- and mar-resistant paint systems with Medium Surface Energy. This adhesive has been proven time and again for decades.

      3. Viscoelastic acrylic foam core
      Exclusive to 3M, the acrylic foam core of 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tapes is engineered for stress relaxation when exposed to high stress loads, and conforms reliably even when the surface is curved or angled. It maintains consistent bondline aesthetics under normal stress loads.

      4. Non-liner side adhesive
      Non-liner side adhesive is excellent for bonding to automotive trim and other components made of a wide variety of metals and plastics. An adhesion promoter is recommended for optimal bonding to plastic parts.
