No urethanes. No primer. No heat. A new era of bonding to glass.
Our 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape (SBT) 9550 is a 0.75 mm, white tape formulated for permanent bonding of hardware such as camera brackets, rain sensor brackets and rearview mirror buttons to automotive windshields. This primerless solution applies quickly and cleanly. It is pre-applied to generic or customer-specific hardware, making it ready to activate and install at the glass manufacturer for increased production efficiency. The tape activates to achieve structural strength when exposed to UV light. Since it eliminates urethane bonding, it also eliminates the need for metering, pumping, purging and dispensing.
Our permanent solutions include 3M™ Structural Bonding Tape 9550 for post-autoclave bonding of brackets and other hardware to automotive glass.
Compared to other attachment methods, our 3M Structural Bonding Tapes provide extremely efficient handling, positioning and application to clean glass surfaces. Double-sided adhesive features a light tack in its non-activated state, and after activation by UV light or heat-curing with a common heat laminator, it provides robust structural bonding performance and good resistance to environmental conditions (including heat, humidity, hot water, cold and cold shock). 3M Structural Bonding Tapes provides an excellent bond to clear glass and black ceramic frits.
3M supplies sensor brackets and other automotive components with pre-applied tape for fast, efficient hardware mounting applications throughout the vehicle. Tape is customized for the bracket design and needs, and pre-applied to hardware, eliminating process steps at the glass manufacturer. Since priming isn’t necessary for application to glass, potential quality issues associated with primer are eliminated, such as unprimed glass or brackets, wet primer and primer flow or drip.
3M is constantly working to meet the evolving challenges of automotive OEM and Tier suppliers worldwide. If you need help finding an existing solution or would like to talk about specific ideas you’re working on, get in touch with us.
