- 3M Scotch 4298 Adhesion Promoter (Sponge Applicator Packet)
3M 4298 Adhesion Promoter is a liquid primer used for most low surfaces energy plastics. This would include common low surface energy plastics used for automotive dash and interior trim applications (TPO, PPO, PP, PC, PC and ABS, etc.). It is specifically formulated to be used with 3M Acrylic Foam Tapes. Since formulations and surface energies can vary for these types of materials, each application should be verified through testing. This adhesion promoter is supplied in an easy-to-use sponge applicator packet. 3M 4298 Application Procedure: the liquid contents of the packet should be completely used as soon as possible after opening. Hold packet upright and avoid squeezing an opened packet to prevent spillage of liquid contents. The packet can be opened by tearing across the top of the packet at the notches. This will expose the sponge applicator. Do not remove the sponge or squeeze a freshly opened packet. Handling the bottom section of the packet should enable application of 3M adhesion promoter 4298 with no mess. Apply a thin, uniform coating to the bonding surface, using the minimum amount that will fully coat the surface. A wet coating thickness of 0.002 inch or less is recommended. Apply promoter only to areas that will be fully covered with tape. Although drying times may vary due to temperature and/or humidity, a drying time of 30 to 90 seconds is typically indicative of this thickness. The primer should be dry before applying tape. For best results, apply tape immediately after primer application or no more than one hour afterwards. Be sure the primed surface remains free from contaminants prior to tape application.

- JVCC MAG-01 Magnetic Tape (With Adhesive / 1/32" thickness)
JVCC MAG-01 Magnetic Tape is a flexible magnet mounted on a thin polyester film which has been coated on one side with an aggressive rubber based pressure sensitive adhesive. Tape is supplied self-wound on a semi-bleached kraft paper liner. The magnet is comprised of a multipole one face flexible magnet (composite of strontium and/or barium ferrite particles oriented with a thermoplastic polymer matrix). These permanent magnets remain magnetized indefinitely if not subjected to a demagnetizing force. This tape is not returnable for this reason. Please note this magnet has a thickness of 30 mils as noted in the product specializations so is slightly under 1/32" in thickness. As such it would not be able to hold up heavier weight items like heavy-weight fabric (see the 1/16" thick JVCC MAG-02 for heavier weight items). One way we've found to increase the magnetic attraction is to cut some MAG-01 into two pieces and then peel off the release liner to expose the adhesive side and then adhere to the two substrates. Then bring both magnetic sides together which typically creates a stronger magnetic bond.
- JVCC MAG-02 Magnetic Tape (With Adhesive / 1/16" thickness)
JVCC MAG-02 Magnetic Tape is a flexible magnet mounted on a thin 4.5 mil polyester film which has been coated on one side with an aggressive acrylic based pressure sensitive adhesive. The indoor/outdoor adhesive the tape is coated with is for bonding applications where outstanding adhesion, high shear and good solvent and UV resistance are required. The tape is supplied self-wound on a semi-bleached kraft paper liner. The magnet is comprised of a multipole one face flexible magnet (composite of strontium and/or barium ferrite particles oriented with a thermoplastic polymer matrix). These permanent magnets remain magnetized indefinitely if not subjected to a demagnetizing force. This tape is not returnable for this reason. Please note this magnet has a thickness of 60 mils as noted in the product specializations so is slightly under 1/16quot; in thickness. As such it would hold up heavier weight items better than the 1/32" thick MAG-01 Magnetic Tape we also sell.
