Low-Profile Bonding of Emblem to Vehicle
3M™ Nameplate Repair Tape 06385
(PDF, 328 Kb) is one of our thinnest 3M attachment tapes which enables a flush fit for automotive badges, emblems and nameplates. The highly conformable tape is available in narrow widths, measuring .23-inch (5.99 mm), allowing for fast and easy, low profile repair of intricate emblem parts.
Acrylic Adhesive Delivers Secure Attachment
Adhesive is applied to both sides of the tape to allow for simple pressure sensitive bonding. The sealing properties of the acrylic adhesive provide an excellent barrier to water and road dirt, preventing them from getting underneath the emblem or nameplate where corrosion can occur. The viscoelastic foam core conforms well even to complex geometries. It is engineered for stress relaxation when exposed to high stress loads, and maintains bond-line aesthetics under normal stress loads. This tape delivers high peel performance, shear strength and resistance to plasticizers for reliable attachment. A red, polyethylene liner is printed with a white 3M logo
