For Durable Attachment of Weatherstripping and Gasket Seals to Modern Paint Systems
Developed specifically for attaching gasket and weatherstrip seals in automotive applications, 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tape WT4112
(PDF, 177.85 Kb) features our heat-activated adhesive formulated for an immediate, consistent and durable bond to EPDM/TPE materials. This adhesive delivers high initial tack, rapid build and excellent final adhesion without the use of an adhesion promoter, and resists temperatures up to 203°F (95°C). The E2 adhesive is applied to the non-liner side of a 1.2 mm viscoelastic acrylic foam core, which provides excellent conformability and wet-out that helps maintain seal integrity. The liner side of the core features our pressure-sensitive adhesive for bonding to a range of rigid clear coats, MVSS, powder coats and other mar- and scratch-optimized auto paint systems. The black color of this OEM approved tape helps create sharp bond-lines. The polyethylene liner is silicone-coated on one side, suitable for heat-bond tabbing.
