- Ideal for attaching silicone rubber elastomers and foam
- Features acrylic and silicone adhesives for specialized applications such as silicone gasketing
- 3Mô Adhesive 350 on the face side provides exceptional temperature and chemical resistance
- 3 mil silicone adhesive on liner side bonds well to silicone substrates
- Double linered Ė Adhesive 350 on 58# 4.2 mil PCK liner and silicone adhesive on 3 mil PET liner
3Mô Double Coated Tape 9731 was
developed with a high-performance acrylic adhesive on the face side and a
silicone adhesive on the liner side of a 1 mil clear PET carrier. It is
excellent for demanding applications where silicone materials must be
bonded to a range of substrates.
The Inside and Outside of Our Double Coated Tape
Combining a silicone based adhesive and a rubber based adhesive on a
flexible, strong 1 mil clear polyester film (PET) carrier, our 3Mô
Double Coated Tape 9731 is excellent for gasketing and other specialized
applications involving silicone parts. The silicone adhesive provides a
good bond to silicone rubber, strong holding power to various silicone
surfaces. The face side features 3Mô Adhesive 350, an acrylic adhesive
which provides very high adhesion to a wide variety of materials. Both
adhesives enable the tape to perform effectively across a range of
applications, including high temperature performance, good solvent
resistance, very good holding power and excellent UV resistance.
The thin polyester carrier provides
dimensional stability and improved handling with ease of die cutting and
lamination. Both the 3 mil PET liner and the polycoated kraft paper
release liner provide reliable performance for industrial applications,
such as die-cutting and automated dispensers. The liners also help
reduce edge curl and protect the tape from humidity extremes.
- Silicone foams and rubber
For gasketing applications, this tape can be pre-applied to gasketing
material, which is then die-cut to provide parts. 3Mô Double Coated Tape
9731 provides instant adhesion to keep processes moving forward. This
tape is ideal for attaching preformed gaskets, and also for replacing
gaskets or bonding and sealing simultaneously. Examples include air and
liquid filters, fluid handling equipment and heat exchangers. Turn to
3Mô Double Coated Tape 9731 when you need gaskets that are easy and
quick to apply, resist fluids and provide high adhesion to foams and
various silicone surfaces.
What is Double Coated Tape?
In general, double coated tape is composed of a paper, film, or tissue
carrier that is coated on both sides with pressure sensitive adhesive.
The adhesive is protected by a peel-away liner that is removed at the
time of application. These tapes can be applied by hand or with a
dispenser. Double coated tape dispensers are available in a variety of
configurations ranging from manual to fully automatic. Applications for
double coated tape are found in electronics, automotive, aerospace,
general industrial and fabrication markets.
