3M Intros Quick-Stick Laminating Adhesive
Quick-stick laminating adhesive.
St. Paul, MN — 3M has unveiled its new Laminating Adhesive 360, for fast, secure assembly of a wide range of HSE and LSE materials including glass, ABS and difficult-to-bond PP, HDPE, LDPE, nylon and powder-coated or UV painted surfaces.

The new material is available in a thin 2-mil or 5-mil transfer tape and 2-mil or 4-mil double-coated tape for a low profile bond line and a smooth appearance. The conformable adhesive provides shear and peel strengths that are equal to or greater than many thicker tapes, enabling secure attachment of today's many new thinner and lighter weight products.

The low-odor adhesive offers resistance to high heat and humidity as well as solvents and other harsh environments. Parts are bonded quickly and easily with more strength and less adhesive when compared to competitive products.

The technology behind the new adhesive offers converters increased productivity with fewer time-wasting production issues. According to the company, users experience little or no oozing, helping die-cut pieces retain their clean edge, and virtually eliminating adhesive residue on cutting blades, liner backing and/or die-cut part surfaces, while removing concern for adhesive "picking" during unwind.

The adhesive is suitable for applications in the electronics, appliance, transportation and medical device manufacturing industries. Applications include: lens bonding; gasket attachment; plastic housing and component assembly; die-cut parts including LCD windows; decorative trim attachment appliance; decorative trim attachment; die-cut parts including LCD windows; nameplates and rating panels for difficult-to-bond substrates transportation; interior decorative trim attachment; die-cut parts for noise dampening; plastic housing and component assembly ; nameplates and rating plates for difficult-to-bond surfaces; gasket attachment; plastic housing and component assembly; die-cut parts including LCD windows.
