3M Releases Primerless Acrylic Plus Tape
Feb. 23, 2015—3M’s automotive division has introduced its 3M Acrylic Plus Tape PX5000 Series, according to a recent announcement.
The primerless acrylic foam tape is designed for permanent bonding and attachment to low surface energy plastics including TPO, PP/EPDM, polypropylene and others.
By eliminating the need for primer, one can improve environment, health and safety issues for employees who handle, apply, and are exposed to primers. This also reduces the complexity of a manufacturing process and can lead to better quality control and greater quality assurance of products by eliminating variables in a process.
3M PX5000 tapes also help to reduce costs associated with primer.
Large rolls of 3M PX5000 can be cut and converted into usable custom shaped parts for assembly. Parts can be supplied on a roll, as individual pieces with liner on both sides to protect the adhesive, or on a sheet. Parts can be designed with a tab or extended liner to make peel and application easier for either hand or automated assembly.
