- Medium tack double coated tape is ideal for general splicing, core starting and roll closing
- Excellent peel and shear strength to withstand splicing applications
- Bonds well to most substrates, including low surface energy plastics
- Excellent UV and heat resistance
- Conformable to irregular surfaces
- Double sided adhesion increases dimensional stability for easy handling
3M™ Double Coated Tape 9576B is a medium tack double-sided tape designed for general splicing and roll closing applications. It has a pressure sensitive adhesive that offers a balance of high initial adhesion and good holding power for web splicing and general purpose bonding applications.
Ideal for Rigorous Splicing Applications
3M™ Double Coated Tape 9576B is a double-sided tape with a hand tearable black polypropylene carrier lined on both sides with 3M™ Adhesive 400. Once bonded, this tape provides excellent peel and shear strength — making it ideal for rigorous splicing applications and bonding plastics to metals. 3M™ Double Coated Tape 9576B is mounted on a tan 60# densified kraft paper liner for ease in die-cutting applications.
- Web splicing
- Core starting
- General purpose bonding
Provides Reliable Performance
The medium-firm pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive system features an excellent balance of good initial adhesion (quick stick) and good shear holding power. The formulation gives a consistently strong bond across a range of temperatures, up to 165°F (75°C). A thin, tough, polypropylene carrier between the adhesive layers improves the handling and strength of the tape. By using a robust 60 lb. densified kraft paper release liner, this tape provides reliable performance for industrial applications, such as die-cutting and automated dispensers.
Understanding 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 can be removed at the time of application or left in place until the joining surfaces are ready to be attached. 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 construction, fabrication, arts and hobby, and the web processing industry, among others.
