Leading 3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tapes Distributor

3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tapes can be thought of as glue on a liner. They are used in a wide range of applications ranging from basic graphic attachment to flexible circuitry. They are used to provide long term bonds to graphic nameplates and overlays in a wide variety of markets including: Aerospace, Medical, Industrial Equipment, Appliance and Electronics Markets.

Transfer tapes are generally between 1-5 mils and are very conformable making them ideal for high speed processing of parts. Transfer tapes are coated onto a removable release liner that protects the adhesive until the liner is removed. With pressure, the tapes will stick without any other type of activation method. The tapes can be broken down into three distinct application groupings:

  • High Surface Energy & Harsh Environments
  • Low Surface Energy & Challenging Surfaces
  • General Industrial, U.V. Resistant and Cold 

Probably the easiest way to distinguish between the need for high and low surface energy adhesives is to use a freshly waxed car as an example. When a car hasn't been waxed in some time, water spreads and runs off the car. This is an example of how a high surface energy substrate would react as well. The molecular attraction causes the water to "flow." A waxed car would exhibit low surface energy since the water would bead up and not "flow" off of the surface.

Tekra carries a full line of 3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tapes and can help determine the best tape for your application.
