This company now offers 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tape Series EX4500 for primerless application of trim components for global automakers and supplier customers. The 3M Automotive Tapesseries reportedly allows for robust adhesion to medium-surface-energy (MSE) substrates and is compatible with a variety of paints without the need for an adhesion promoter or other surface pre-treatment methods.

The series uses a proprietary 3M adhesive technology to offer primerless adhesion to MSE plastics such as acrylic, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), acrylonitrile ethylene styrene (AES), acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA), polycarbonate (PC) and PC+ABS, while also ensuring compatibility with a variety of paints. This reportedly makes the tape ideal for use with pillar garnishes, MSE body-side moldings, step plates, vent visors and chrome appliqués.
