DAP reports that Power Point 300 provides maximum flexibility and strong multi-material adhesion for a long-lasting, durable seal that won’t crack.
October 6, 2020
DAP has expanded its line of Power Point caulks and sealants, specifically formulated for the professional painting contractor, to include a line of high-performance acrylic urethane sealants called Power Point 300.
Solvent-based adhesives were traditionally attractive systems for both industrial users and consumers. They are low-cost systems that dry quickly and frequently give high performance, particularly on plastics where the solvents soften or dissolve the surface layers.
You don’t indicate which substrate is on the outside, and this does make a difference in the possible choice of adhesive. Epoxy adhesives were traditionally used for this application, but they should be used with care as they may be too rigid.
Made of double-sided acrylic foam, the 3M VHB tape LSE series reportedly creates a long-lasting, high-strength bond and performs well across a wide temperature range, providing a durable alternative to ultrasonic welding and other adhesion methods.
April 16, 2020
The 3M VHB tape LSE series is reportedly a fast, easy, and reliable bonding solution for low-surface-energy (LSE) substrates like polypropylene (PP), thermoplastic olefins (TPO), and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), as well as composite materials like glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) or fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP).
Thermoplastic olefin (TPO) materials belong to the larger group of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs). As such, they come in many formulations and can be molded into parts with different surface finishes. Increasingly used in the automotive industry as an alternative to high-cost, heavy metal materials, TPO plastics present unique bonding challenges for pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) manufacturers.
