Taping to common low surface energy applications can be a unique challenge. You may benefit from the use of an adhesion promoter and adhesive primer. Adhesion promoters and primers are used to promote better and faster adhesion of adhesive tape to various surface types.
- Plastics used for automotive dash and interior trim applications
- Bare metals
- Galvanized steel
- Painted surfaces
Since formulations and surface energies can vary for these types of materials, each application should be verified through testing.
