3m Adhesive Information Page

 
We use 3M adhesive #9627 on the back of every asset tag because it is the best adhesive transfer tape available in the world. 

This adhesive has:
• Super quick stick.
• Higher adhesion from a thinner tape.
• Excellent solvent resistance.
• High temperature performance.

Relative High Temperature Operating Ranges:
Long Term (days, weeks) 200°F (93°C) 200°F (93°C)
Short Term (minutes, hours) 350°F (177°C) 350°F (177°C)
Relative Solvent Resistance: Very Good

Features • Excellent adhesion to difficult to bond to surfaces such as HDPE, LDPE, and PP.
• Super quick stick.
• Higher adhesion from a thinner tape.
• Excellent solvent resistance.
• High temperature performance.

Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact
developed. Firm application will assist the adhesive in developing intimate contact
with the bonding surface. To accelerate the adhesion process, additional heat, up to
130°F (54°C), may be used.
To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean, dry, and well
unified. Some typical surface cleaning solvents are isopropyl alcohol or heptane.*
Ideal tape application temperature range is 70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C). Initial
tape application to surfaces at temperatures below 50°F (10°C) is not recommended
because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. However, once properly
applied, low temperature holding is generally satisfactory.
*When using solvents, extinguish all ignition sources, including pilot lights, and
follow the manufacturers precautions and directions for use. These cleaning
recommendations may not be compliant with the rules of certain Air Quality
Management Districts in California; consult applicable rules before use.

Environmental Performance

Humidity Resistance: High humidity has minimal effect on adhesive performance.
No significant reduction in bond strength is observed after exposure for 7 days at
90°F (32°C) and 90% relative humidity.
UV Resistance: When properly applied, nameplates and decorative trim parts are
not adversely affected by exposure.
Water Resistance: Immersion in water has no appreciable effect on the bond
strength. After 100 hours at room temperature, the high bond strength is maintained.
Temperature Cycling Resistance: High bond strength is maintained after cycling
four times through:
8 hours at 194°F (90°C)
16 hours at -40°F (-40°C)
8 hours at 100.4°F (38°C/100% RH)
16 hours at -40°F (-40°C)
Chemical Resistance: When properly applied, nameplate and decorative trim parts
will hold securely after exposure to numerous chemicals including oil, mild acids,
and alkalis.
 Foam to powder coated painted surfaces.
• Low surface energy plastic adhesion.
