3M™ Acrylic Plus Tape ST1200 features our heat-activated adhesive on a 1.2 mm viscoelastic acrylic foam core. This adhesive creates an immediate, durable bond to EPDM/TPE and many Santoprene® TPV materials. Pressure-sensitive adhesive on the liner side is designed for rigid clear coat systems. The conformable foam core provides excellent wet-out for automotive weatherstripping and gasket seals.
The tape's low-profile bond line and black color deliver exceptional aesthetics and an original equipment appearance
For Durable Attachment of Weatherstripping and Gasket Seals to Rigid Clears
Developed specifically for attaching gasket and weatherstrip seals in automotive applications, 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tape ST1200
(PDF, 200.27 Kb) features our heat-activated adhesive formulated for an immediate, consistent and durable bond to EPDM/TPE materials. This adhesive delivers high initial tack, rapid build and excellent final adhesion without the use of an adhesion promoter, and resists temperatures up to 203°F (95°C) for efficient application prior to seal coating bakes. Adhesive is applied to the non-liner side of a 1.2 mm viscoelastic acrylic foam core, which provides excellent conformability and wet-out that helps maintain seal integrity. The liner side of the core features our pressure-sensitive adhesive for bonding to a range of rigid clear coat auto paint systems. The black color of this OEM approved tape helps create sharp bond-lines. The red, 3M branded liner is silicone-coated on one side, suitable for heat-bond tabbing.
