Comprised of a polyester film backing with a layer of adhesive on each side, 3M™ Double Coated Tape 93020LE is a market proven, double coated transfer tape with good anti-lifting properties. This tape bonds well to similar and dissimilar materials including, metals, most plastics, glass, papers and painted surfaces.
Versatile, Market Leading Performance
For applications requiring premium performance and a thicker profile, use our versatile 3M™ Double Coated Tape 93020LE. This tape is a market leading solution for bonding plastics in a variety of applications across a broad spectrum of industries. It offers good chemical, humidity and moisture resistance, as well as performance across a wide temperature range (from -40ºF/-40ºC to 300ºF/148ºC). The bond strength increases as a function of time and temperature, and has very high initial adhesion.
This tape is supplied on a tan 58 lb. polycoated kraft paper liner ideal for die-cutting and converting applications. The polyester carrier provides dimensional stability to foams and other substrates, making it easier to handle the tape during slitting and die-cutting. Part of the 3M™ High Strength Acrylic Adhesive 300LSE family, this tape is manufactured using a solventless manufacturing process. 3M™ Double Coated Tape 93020LE meets UL746C (reference file QOQW2.MH17478).
Excellent Adhesion to a Variety of Surfaces
3M™ High Strength Acrylic Adhesive 300LSE is an acrylic adhesive family designed to provide very high bond strength to most surfaces, including a wide variety of similar and dissimilar materials. This includes most plastics, metals, glass, papers and painted surfaces. This market proven adhesive is also used on our reliable 3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tape 9471LE and features good chemical, solvent, moisture and humidity resistance. This adhesive can perform at temperatures up to 300°F/148°C.
What is Double Coated Tape?
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 tapes are found in construction, fabrication, arts, and hobby.
Reduce Harmful Processes
This 3M™ bonding tape is an example of a product that is produced via a solventless manufacturing process. Purchasing this tape instead of one created using a solvent-based manufacturing process can result in GHG emissions reductions that may be counted by your company, called Scope 3, Category 1 GHG reduction. Scope 3 emissions are all indirect emissions that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream emissions.
Pressure Sensitive Adhesive properties are frequency and temperature sensitive. 3M has developed Material Data Cards (MDCs) for common 3M PSAs for use with many commercially available FEA software applications. Learn more.
