Color Key:
 
Includes Transfer Tapes used for thin bonding. A transfer tape is a layer of adhesive on a liner. When the liner is removed, there is only a layer of adhesive with no carrier remaining on the part.
 
Includes Double Sided tapes used for thin bonding. A Double sided Thin Bonding tape is a carrier such as film or paper with adhesive on both sides. When the liner is removed, there is a thin double sided tape remaining on the part.
 
Includes Double Sided tapes used for thick bonding. A Double sided Thick Bonding tape is a carrier such as foam with adhesive on both sides. When the liner is removed, there is a layer of double sided foam remaining on the part.
 
Includes Double Sided 3M™ VHB tapes used for thick bonding. 3M™ VHB™ Tapes are made with acrylic foam which is viscoelastic in nature. This gives the foam energy absorbing and stress relaxing properties which provides these tapes with their unique characteristics. The acrylic chemistry provides outstanding durability performance. click here (insert .pdf of VHB family data sheet to open in a window)
