- Conformable, closed cell 1.52mm acrylic foam core provides excellent wet out on surface contours
- Good choice for demanding trim attachment or where a thick foam is required
- Features two different adhesives – one on each side of the tape for effective bonding
- Liner-side adhesive is designed for adherence to automotive paint systems
- Non-liner-side adhesive delivers excellent adhesion to metal and plastic parts
- Acrylic adhesives are formulated for high adhesive build rates on automotive substrates
- Black color provides good bond-line appearance
- Adhesion promoter recommended for tape-to-part adhesion on plastic parts
3M™ Automotive Acrylic Plus Attachment Tape 06397 features two adhesives, one on each side of a strong, conformable 1.52 mm closed-cell acrylic foam core. Our liner-side adhesive is formulated for bonding to automotive paint systems, and the non-liner-side bonds to metals and plastics used in automotive components. Both adhesives deliver excellent initial tack and adhesive build.
Conformable core for excellent wet-out (tape contact to substrate)
Two Adhesives for Bonding to Automotive Parts and Paint Systems
Developed specifically for attaching exterior trim and other parts to automotive substrates, our 3M™ Automotive Acrylic Plus Attachment Tape 06397
(PDF, 304 Kb) features a thick, durable 1.52 mm acrylic foam core with two different adhesives one for each side of the application. Our liner-side adhesive delivers excellent adhesion to plastic and metal surfaces commonly found in automotive trim and other components. The-non liner-side adhesive provides very high initial and final adhesion for automotive paint surfaces, including scratch- and mar-resistant paint systems. Both adhesives are formulated for very high adhesive build and final adhesion to automotive surfaces.
Thick Foam Core Handles Higher Loads
The thick, 1.52 mm 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. The black color of this OEM approved tape helps create sharp bond-lines. Its 1/2" width makes it suitable for a versatile range of applications. A red, 3M branded liner provides easy one-piece release for efficient application.
Confidence in Your Purchase
The 3M branded liner
(PDF, 148 Kb) liner features a subtle 3M logo-marking to provide evidence to the customer that they are receiving the 3M quality they expect from their purchase. The liner makes our tapes easy to identify and difficult to imitate. This proprietary branding technology is designed to help identification of 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes.
3M recommends the use of 3M™ Automotive Adhesion Promoter 06396 for tape-to-part adhesion with 3M™ Automotive Acrylic Plus Attachment Tape 06397 on all plastic parts such as RIM, TPO, PPO, PP and PC.
