3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape 5404, Gray, 1.2 mm is an automotive attachment tape for attaching seals, weatherstripping and other elastomeric parts in automotive applications. It features a heat-activated adhesive on a 1.2 mm viscoelastic acrylic foam core. This adhesive provides an immediate, durable bond to EPDM/TPE and many Santoprene® TPV materials. The liner-side adhesive is designed for high adhesion to low-surface-energy (LSE), with an adhesion promoter, and scratch-resistant paint systems. The conformable foam core provides excellent wet-out for seals and other elastomeric parts.

For Durable Attachment of Weatherstrip and Other Elastomeric Parts to Modern Paint Systems
Developed specifically for attaching seals, weatherstripping and other elastomeric parts in automotive applications, 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape 5404 (PDF, 51.35 Kb) features a 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. The 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 that delivers very high initial and final adhesion to a range of rigid clear coats, powder coats and other mar- and scratch-optimized auto paint systems. The inconspicuous gray color of this OEM-approved tape helps create sharp bond-lines. The orange polyethylene foil liner is silicone-coated on one side, suitable for heat-bond tabbing.

Recommended Applications

  • Weatherstrip seals
  • Gasket seals
  • EPDM and PP materials
  • Santoprene® TPV (with appropriate testing and verification)
  • Santoprene is a trademark of Exxon Mobil Corporation.

Better Science for Better Adhesion from 3M
Since 1925 when one of our lab assistants 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 of our products developed for automotive OEM, like 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape 5404.
