3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape RT8008US is designed for the attachment of automotive exterior trim parts, such as body side moldings and spoilers. This tape provides an engineered adhesive system that adheres well to traditional and advanced paint systems.
Superior adhesion performance and high flexibility
3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape RT8008US is a 0.8 mm thick, medium-density, gray, pressure sensitive acrylic foam tape used for the attachment of automotive exterior trim parts such as body side moldings. Its unique foam core provides stress relaxation when high application loads are encountered, while maintaining tight bond-line aesthetics under normal conditions.
A Versatile Tape for a Range of Paint Systems
Developed specifically for attaching trim and other exterior parts in automotive applications, 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape RT8008US features an acrylic adhesive on its liner side formulated for a wide range of auto paint systems. This adhesive delivers excellent adhesion to traditional and advanced auto paint systems, and helps support heavier parts such as spoilers and claddings. The adhesive is applied to both sides of a 0.8 mm viscoelastic acrylic foam core, which provides stress relaxation when exposed to high loads and maintains tight bond-line aesthetics under normal conditions. The inconspicuous gray color of 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape RT8008US helps ensure good bond-line appearance. The orange liner provides easy one-piece release and efficient tape application.
