3M™ Automotive Acrylic Attachment Tapes

Jacobs & Thompson is a custom parts manufacturer of 3M™ Automotive Acrylic Attachment Tapes, which are used in a wide variety of applications requiring extreme bond and viscoelasticity.

3M™ Acrylic Attachment Tapes are OEM approved and are stronger, higher performing, higher stress handling products than other automotive attachment tapes.

Typical applications include body side moldings, rocker panel moldings, claddings, wheel flares, bumper trim and other exterior and interior automotive trim attachments.

Benefits:

  • Overall cost improvements on production assembly
  • Removes oxidization and noise concerns related to manual fasteners
  • Superior adhesion build rate to automotive substrates
  • More conformable core gives excellent wet-out (tape contact)
  • Black, high-strength core maintains a thin, consistent bond line
  • Easy liner release for faster run rates

3M™ VHB™ Acrylic Attachment Tapes

3M™ VHB™ Tape is a high strength, double-sided acrylic adhesive tape. The pressure-sensitive (PSA) creates an instant bond without any drying time required.

The polymer of 3M™ VHB™ Tape is comprised of carbon-carbon chemical bonds that are highly resistant to energy. With less durable foams, exposure to heat, UV rays or chemicals can cause mechanical properties to breakdown.

With 3M™ VHB™ Tapes, the materials actually build strength over time, providing stronger, long lasting bonds. 3M™ VHB™ tapes commonly replace manual fasteners in a wide variety of applications.

Benefits:

  • High shear and tensile strength properties
  • Overall cost improvements on production assembly
  • Wide Temperature Range (-31°F to 320°F - short term 464°F)
  • Designed for outdoor use (UV, Solvent, Wind and Water Resistant)
  • Provides damping properties to reduce noise and vibration

In conjunction with accredited independently certified labs, our in-house testing facility is a vital component in ensuring customer, industry & market standards are being surpassed.
