3M™ Foam Lamination Tapes consist of a collection of eight adhesive tapes further segmented into three different performance levels. The Level 1 platform is designed to bond to substrates including PU ether, PU ester, cross-linked PE foam and microcellular urethane and withstands temperatures up to 200°F. Two options exist in the Level 1 platform and include:
The Level 2 adhesive platform provides slightly higher temperature resistance (up to 225°F) and bonds well to PU ether, PU ester, cross-linked PE foam, neoprene foam, nitrile foam, and microcellular urethane. The four Level 2 adhesive options include:
L2 + DCP - 4.8 double coated polyester
L2 + DCD - 6.7 mil differential double coated polyester (L2 adhesive face side and LSE acrylic adhesive on the back side)
L2 + T3 - 3.0 mil transfer tape
L2 + T5 - 5.0 mil transfer tape
Finally, 3M's Level 3 adhesive platform is designed to withstand operating temperatures up to 275°F and bonds well to substrates such as santoprene, neoprene rubber, butyl rubber, and many versions of EPDM rubber. Two Level 3 options exist and include:
