  • Best Practices for 3M Adhesive Transfer Tape 468MPF

    *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 affect on skin and can interfere with the performance of a pressure-sensitive adhesive.

      Note: Carefully read and follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use when working with solvents. These cleaning recommendations may not be in compliance with the rules of certain air quality management Districts in California, consult applicable rules before use.

    2. Application

      It is necessary to provide pressure during lamination (1.5-20 pli recommended) and during final part installation (10-15 psi) to allow the adhesive to 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 3M™ Adhesive 200MP. If a texture is visible on one or both surfaces, the 5 mil 3M adhesive 200MP would be suggested. If both materials are rigid, it may be necessary to use a thicker adhesive to successfully bond the components.

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