Secure Bond to Impervious Surfaces
3M™ Trim Adhesive is a fast-acting, high-strength, aerosol contact adhesive for automotive repair and restoration projects. Our trim adhesive creates a secure bond between materials such as vinyl, insulation, foam, padding and rubber to impervious materials such as metal. Installing new headliners and car hood installation pads are common uses for this adhesive. The trim adhesive (PDF, 2.3 Mb) is resistant to both heat, moisture and plasticizing oils.

Easy to Apply
Applying the adhesive is fast and easy with the aerosol spray can. Simply be sure that both surfaces to be joined are clean and dry. Apply three coats of adhesive to each surface. Spray the third coat in the opposite direction of the first two applications. Allow the adhesive to dry until tacky, which generally takes about five minutes. Finally, mate the surface to be bonded with firm, uniform pressure.
