3M™ Venture Tape™ Double Coated Polyester Tape 3717MS is a high performance, high tack, double coated PET tape designed for tough bonding applications such as laminating to foams and gasketing. The polyester backing adds strength and conformability, and the permanent acrylic adhesive bonds to substrates including foams, metals and composite materials. The tape features a moisture-stable liner.
Excellent for Laminating to Challenging Substrates
3M™ Venture Tape™ Double Coated Polyester Tape 3717MS features a polyester (PET) film backing coated on both sides with a high coat weight of acrylic adhesive. Designed specifically for tough bonding applications such as laminating to foams and gasket materials, this double coated tape permanently adheres to a variety of difficult substrates including plastics, metals, cloth and composite materials. It is UV resistant and performs well in temperature extremes. The release liner is moisture stable to resist curling and degradation during storage and makes for efficient processing.
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 can be removed at the time of application or left in place until the joining surfaces are ready to be attached. 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 construction, fabrication, arts and hobby.
