  • Best Practices for 3M 9672 Adhesive Transfer Tape-5 mil

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      For maximum bond strength (during installation of the final part) the surface should be thoroughly cleaned and dried. Typical cleaning solvents are heptane (for oily surfaces) or isopropyl alcohol for plastics. Use reagent grade solvents since common household materials like rubbing alcohol frequently contain oils to minimize the drying effect on skin. These oils can interfere with the performance of a pressure-sensitive adhesive.

      Consult solvent manufacturers MSDS for proper handling and storage instructions. Also, use disposable wipes that do not contain oils, to remove the cleaning solvents.

    2. Application

      It is necessary to provide pressure during lamination (1.5-20 PLI recommended) and during final part installation (10-15 PLI) to allow to adhesive the come into direct contact with the substrate. Using a hard edged plastic tool, which is the full width of the laminated part, helps to provide the necessary pressure at the point of lamination. Heat can increase bond strength when bonding to metal parts (generally this same increase is observed at room temperature over longer times, weeks). For plastic parts, the bond strength is not enhanced with the addition of heat.

      Application is not recommended if the surface temperature is below 50°F (10°C) because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. Once properly applied, at the recommended application temperature, low temperature holding is generally satisfactory

      When bonding a thin, smooth, flexible material to a smooth surface, it is generally acceptable to use 2 mils of adhesive. If a texture is visible on one or both surfaces, the 5 mil adhesive would be suggested. If both materials are rigid, it may be necessary to use a thicker adhesive to successfully bond the components. 3M™VHB™Acrylic Foam Tapes may be required

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

    3. Curing

      Heat can increase bond strength when bonding to metal parts (generally this same increase is observed at room temperature over longer times, weeks). For plastic parts, the bond strength is not enhanced with the addition of heat.
