Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact developed. Firm application pressure helps develop better adhesive contact and improve bond strength.To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean, dry, and well unified. Some typical surface cleaning solvents are isopropyl alcohol/water mixture or heptane.*Ideal tape application temperature range is 70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C). Initial tape application to surfaces at temperatures below 50°F (10°C) is not recommended because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. However, once properly applied, low temperature holding is generally satisfactory.*Note: Be sure to follow the manufacturer™s precautions and directions for use when using solvents.
APPLICATION NOTES:3M Adhesive 100MP is thermoplastic in nature, becoming softer as temperature increases and firmer as temperature decreases. As theFigure 1.
