  • Best Practices for 3M Double Coated Tape 9496LE Clear

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean, dry and well unified. Some typical surfaces cleaning solvents are isopropyl alcohol or heptane.

      Note: Carefully read and follow the manufacturer's precautions and directions for use when working with solvents. These cleaning recommendations may not be compliant with the rules of certain Air Quality Management Districtsin California, consult applicable rules before use.

    2. Application

      Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive to surface contact developed. Firm application pressure and moderate heat, from 100°F (38°C) to 130°F (54°C), will assist the adhesive in developing intimate contact with the bonding surface.

      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.
