  • Best Practices for 3M 9472LE

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      For maximum bond strength, the surface should be thoroughly cleaned and dried. Typical cleaning solvents are heptane or isopropyl alcohol.

      Carefully read and follow manufacturer's precautions and directions for use when using cleaning solvents.

    2. Application

      Initial tape application to surfaces at temperatures below 50°F (10°C) is not recommended for most pressure-sensitive adhesive because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. However, once properly applied, low temperature holding is generally satisfactory.
