3M™ Double Coated Tape 9816L features an aggressive, high tack rubber adhesive on a white polyester film carrier. This tape bonds immediately to most rubbers and open- and closed-cell foams, polyester and many plastics including PU, PE and polystyrene, and delivers good heat resistance. A 60# densified kraft liner adds dimensional stability for rotary and flatbed die-cutting.
A Balanced and Economical Tape for General-Purpose Industrial Applications
With a nominal thickness of 3.5 mils, our 3M™ Double Coated Tape 9816L is a general-purpose industrial tape that provides an immediate bond to most open cell urethane and closed cell urethane foams. This tape features an aggressive rubber-based adhesive which bonds to polyester, polyester urethane, polyethylene, polystyrene, vinyl foams and most rubbers. It is applied on each side of a white polyester film carrier which adds dimensional stability to foams and other substrates, and provides easier handling g. The 60-lb. densified kraft paper liner improves handling during slitting and die cutting.
3M™ Double Coated Tape 9816L has been tested for heat resistance from 150ºF/65ºC for short periods, and 120ºF/49ºC long term.
What is Double Coated Tape?
In general, double coated tape is composed of a paper, film, or tissue carrier that is coated on both sides with pressure sensitive adhesive. The adhesive is protected by a peel-away liner that is removed at the time of application. These tapes can be applied by hand or with a dispenser. Double coated tape dispensers are available in a variety of configurations ranging from manual to fully automatic. Applications for double coated tape are found in electronics, automotive, aerospace, general industrial, and fabrication markets.
