ADHESIVES

These adhesives can be applied to all aluminum nameplates and .010 polycarbonate.

Helpful Hint: 2 mil thick adhesives are ideal for smooth surfaces on plates with a thickness of .003 to .020. 5 mil thick adhesives are ideal for rough or textured surfaces, plates that need to conform to a radius surface, or plates that are .032 or greater in thickness. We recommend testing samples in critical applications.

3M 467MP:

  • 2 mils thick
  • Best for flat, smooth surfaces
  • Excellent temperature resistance -31F to 400F (300F long term)
  • Excellent shear strength minimizing edge lifting and slippage
  • Can withstand splashes of organic solvent, weak acids and bases, salt water, cleaning solutions, germicidals, disinfectants, oils.
  • Performs well after exposure to hot/cold cycles and humidity
  • Lowest in cost
  • Not recommended for powder coated surfaces or low surface energy plastics

3M 9472LE (a/k/a 3M 300LSE):

  • 5 mils thick
  • Flat, curved, or textured surfaces
  • Ideal for powder coated surfaces and low surface energy plastics (i.e. polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene...) or surfaces lightly contaminated with oil
  • Temperature resistance -40F to 300F (short term)
  • Humidity, UV, water, and many chemicals do not affect performance
  • Excellent solvent, water and environmental resistance

3M 583:

  • 2 mils thick
  • Flexible heat or solvent activated dry film composed of synthetic elastomer, thermoplastic and thermosetting resins.
  • Film softens or flows when either heat or solvents are applied and provides a strong, permanent bond. Capable of a structural type bond if properly applied.
  • Not used as often as pressure-sensitive adhesives.
