    Specifically designed for attaching nameplates, emblems and badges

    3M™ Die-Cuttable Tape DC2015S2 has been created to meet both the demands of exterior vehicle paint attachment and the trend toward lettering and other narrow nameplates and badges. This 1.5 mm tape features excellent handling for precise die cuttability even when creating narrow or intricate patterns. The specifically formulated adhesives and the firm, twist-resistant acrylic polymer core help ensure that add-on parts stay attached – potentially reducing rework and enhanced brand image among customers.

    1. White 3M Branded polyethylene liner
    3M™ Die-Cuttable Tape DC2015S2 features a white, 3M branded High Density Polyethylene (HDP) liner for excellent protection of the tape adhesive and core. Minimal edge-welding makes the tape extremely die cuttable for precise application.

    2. Liner side adhesive
    Liner-side adhesive is formulated for very high initial and final adhesion to scratch and mar-resistant paint systems.

    3. Acrylic polymer core
    Exclusive to 3M, the acrylic polymer core of 3M™ Die-Cuttable Tape DC2015S2 is engineered for firm performance that resists pluck and torque – twisting motions that can cause detachment of narrow or intricate nameplates, emblems and badges. The inconspicuous black color helps to ensure high satisfaction among consumers.

    4. Non-liner side adhesive
    The non-liner side forms an immediate, consistent and durable bond to paint and chrome parts.

    Excellent for die cutting
    3M DC2000 Series tapes are designed for precise and efficient die cutting, even when creating narrow or intricate designs.
