  • Best Practices for 3M 4496

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean, dry and well unified. Typical surface cleaning solvents are isopropyl alcohol and water (rubbing alcohol) or water. Note: Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use when using cleaning solvents.

    2. Application

      Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact developed. Firm application pressure helps develop better adhesive contact and improve bond strength.

      Ideal tape application temperature range is 70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C). Initial tape application to surfaces at temperatures below 50°F (10°C) is not recommended because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. However, once properly applied, low temperature holding is generally satisfactory.

      To apply adhesives in a wide web format, lamination equipment is required to ensure acceptable quality.
