  • Excellent for performance-engineered labels using UV inks
  • 3M™ Adhesive 300 delivers very high adhesion on metal, plastics and foams
  • UV indicator in adhesive changes color for accurate monitoring during ink curing
  • 2.0 mil acrylic adhesive performs even when exposed to humidity and hot/cold cycles
  • High adhesive shear strength helps resist slippage and edge lifting on HSE plastics
  • 55# PCK liner adds stability for storage and die-cutting

3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tape 992U features our high strength 3M™ Adhesive 300, which provides an excellent bond to a range of HSE and LSE materials. This 2.0 mil adhesive performs in a range of conditions and temperatures. It carries a color-changing UV indicator, ideal for UV ink cure monitoring in performance label applications. A 58# PCK liner provides excellent handling and lay-flat properties.

An Adhesive Transfer Tape for Performance Labels
Featuring 3M™ High Strength Acrylic Adhesive 300 for very high initial and final adhesion to a range of substrates, our 3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tape 992U is designed specifically for performance-engineered labeling applications. The tough, transparent adhesive is excellent for metals, HSE and LSE plastics and foam, and delivers shear strength that resists slippage and edge lifting. 3M has added a UV indicator which changes color during typical UV curing processes, ideal for effective UV monitoring on jobs using UV inks. PSA transfer tape adhesive is protected by a 55# polycoated kraft paper liner suitable for most die-cutting operations.

Recommended Applications

  • Performance engineered labels
  • Labels using UV inks
  • Jobs requiring high adhesion to metals, foams or plastics

About Our 3M™ Adhesive 300
3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tape 992U features our 3M™ Adhesive 300, which affords excellent quick tack and bonds well to a variety of substrates including metals, high surface energy (HSE) plastics and low surface energy (LSE) plastics. This acrylic Adhesive 300 maintains a durable bond even in a 2 mil thickness, and has been tested to ASTM procedures for peel adhesion, temperature and humidity as well as resistance to UV, fuels, acids and detergents.

About Adhesive Transfer Tape
In general, 3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tapes are rolls of pressure sensitive adhesive pre-applied to a special release liner. The tape consists of adhesive only and does not have any type of backing material. For application the tape is positioned, adhesive side down, to a surface and the liner is removed, exposing the backside of the adhesive to the joining surface. A variety of adhesive properties and liners are available to meet requirements for applications such as nameplate attachment to high and low surface energy plastics, appliance graphic overlays that perform in high temperatures, foam gasketing, web splicing, signs, posters, banners, point-of-purchase displays and more.

Better Science for Better Adhesives from 3M
Since 1925 when one of our lab assistants invented masking tape, 3M has been applying science to life –developing adhesive products and technologies that help entire industries and individual businesses worldwide. The work that began with a single 3M engineer now spans decades and generations. And all of it goes into each of our industrial labeling and adhesive products like 3M™ Adhesive Transfer Tape 992U, to help businesses like yours operate faster, better and more efficiently.
