Product Description

FindTape XHB-40 High Bond Double-Sided Acrylic Foam Tape is a very high performance, clear acrylic foam tape that meets a variety of application needs. This permanent tape has an extremely strong bond which is superior to screws, rivets, and fasteners. FindTape XHB-40 is carried on a red, release coated polyethylene liner that is easy to remove for quick placement.

FindTape XHB-40 will bond to most surfaces including many plastics, composites, sealed woods, and metals; however thorough evaluation is recommended when bonding to low energy surface materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, silicones, and Teflon. For even better adhesion on substrates including glass and glass-like materials; copper and copper containing metals; and plastics or rubber that contain components that migrate (e.g. plasticizers) you will want to prepare the surface with an adhesion promoter or primer such as the primers listed here.

After removing the release liner, be careful not to contaminate the acrylic adhesive (with skin oils or other substances) and try to immediately bond the tape to the surface without entrapping air between the tape and the surface it is being applied to. The tape will not feel as tacky to the touch like a tape coated with a rubber adhesive, e.g. duct tape, etc. It is recommended to try to provide pressure during this time (e.g. clamps, tape over it, etc.) if you can so that the adhesive bond can form correctly. FindTape XHB-40 will need approximately 1 to 24 hours of contact with both surfaces to reach maximum adhesion.

FindTape XHB-40 High Bond Double-Sided Acrylic Foam Tape [40 mil]
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
