This company’s Converter Markets division has introduced a new line of 3M™ silicone laminating adhesive tapes that reportedly enable OEMs and converters to achieve high bond strengths to most silicones and difficult-to-bond-to substrates. The new products, 3M adhesive transfer tape 91022 and 3M double-coated tape 96042, are designed with a single liner and a high-performance adhesive, enabling productivity improvements for users through faster and easier processing.

The tapes’ 2-mil PET liner offers a number of benefits. Because it is a single liner, waste is reduced by 50%, which saves users the time and cost to remove and dispose of a second liner. In addition, the liner can be die-cut to precise shapes with clean edges, and offers good tear and moisture resistance.

“These tapes help address several key problems for customers,” said Julie Ohmann, U.S. Laminating Adhesives manager, 3M Converter Markets. “Because they are stable for up to 12 months on the shelf, users can expect less waste due to tape expiring. Customers also appreciate that the single liner reduces liner waste by half, making it easier to handle and dispose of, as well as the obvious eco-friendly benefits.”
