At NEDC, we die-cut & laser-cut many products. We also offer these same products with tape backing. Some of these tapes include some of our more common ones, such as 3M 467MP or 3M 9472. Oftentimes, those products come with those tapes on the back, to assist in assembly. Beyond assisting in assembly, customers are sometimes looking for a tape with significant holding power. In these cases we would provide them with a VHB Transfer Tape backing.
When people think of VHB Tape, they often think of the foam VHB tapes such as 4941, or 5952. However, there is a different type of VHB Tape that can be transferred onto different surfaces. These products are called VHB Transfer Tapes. These tapes are used where long term holding power is a priority. In fact, they are often used in applications where replacing rivets, spot-welds, or liquid adhesives is of interest. F9469PC(.005″), or F9473PC(.010″), F9460PC(.002″) all utilize 100MP acrylic adhesive from 3M Company. This adhesive withstands high temperature, low temperature, solvent, and moisture well. In addition, these tapes have the UL746C listing. These tapes feature extraordinary typical peel strengths for transfer tapes — 9460PC(7lb/in), 9469PC(8lb/in), and 9473PC(9lb/in). Often, NEDC laminates this tape to different gasketing, or insulating material for a good bond to other surfaces, to be applied later by our customer or by NEDC. However, oftentimes our customers require the tape simply die-cut on the liner itself (kiss-cut) to aid in assembly of their product.
These tapes come on a #58 polycoated liner. This liner can come printed or unprinted with the 3M printing such as the picture presented. Since NEDC is a 3M converter, we have availability of different lengths and widths of these tapes. NEDC commonly die-cuts and laser-cuts certain custom shapes out of these tapes.
