TAPE FASTENER INFORMATION AND INSTALLATION
The 3M VHB tape fastener system
The 3M VHB tape fastener system must be installed on a clean, flat surface which is free of debris and any greasy substance. Installation must be performed at temperatures above 32°F (0°C).
Final cleaning must always be with a mixture of 50% water and 50% rubbing alcohol (isopropyl). Do not use anything else for final clean- ing before applying tape. Do not use dirty rags and commercial cleaners (e.g.,“Windex” Cleaner).
Where heavy grease, oil or dirt is present, use a de-greasing solvent. 3M Citrus Cleaner, Mineral Spirits, or Naphtha with a scrub pad are good options. All solvents will leave behind a slight film; therefore, final cleaning must always be with 50/50 water and rubbing alcohol. Wipe dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
