3M Double Sided Tape

Home maintenance, commercial installations, and quick fixes are simple with 3M™ double-sided tape. Double-sided tape has adhesive on both surfaces to create invisible bonds on a variety of object, including metal, glass, and foam. Staples® offers a wide selection of tape with double-sided adhesive and other office supplies to provide the right bonding option for any project.

Choosing the Correct 3M Double-Sided Tape
Several types of double-sided tapes are available, and each option is fitting for a variety of applications. Both urethane and foam tape absorb shock caused by regular movement, making these choices perfect for projects like mounting nameplates on doors. Extended liner tape, backed with paper, is wider than the adhesive for easier placement and backing removal.

The strong multipurpose adhesive on extended liner double-sided tape securely sticks to a wide range of materials, including painted surfaces, paper, plastic, foam, and metal. For a bond strong enough to replace screws and other fasteners, choose VHB™ tape. This structural adhesive is suitable for use on metal, glass, and plastic, and it is capable of withstanding repeated movement and force for a reliably long-lasting bond.

How to Use 3M Double-Sided Tape
Since this type of tape fastens on both sides, placing the product on the desired surface with the first side of the adhesive exposed facing down is ideal, while also applying pressure to the sticky side using a roller. After rolling the tape until it fastens, it is then time to peel the release liner away from the other side. Applying enough pressure necessary to the second side using the roller securely bonds the surfaces together. The amount of tension required to create a secure bond varies based on the surface materials as well as the specific type of double-sided tape used to fasten the objects together.

How Do You Lift the Backing off of 3M Double-Sided Tape?
Most 3M double-sided tape has the backing material lined on it, which easily lifts away from the adhesive. If the liner is hard to remove, bending down one corner of the tape creates a crease, and then firmly pinching the backing located at the crease with one hand brings it off of the sticky back. Using fingernails, a putty knife, or a credit card to push the topmost corner of tape off the lining are other ways to peel off the backing. After lifting the first corner, the remaining liner effortlessly comes off the adhesive.

Can You Separate Objects Bonded With 3M Double-Sided Tape?
Using a textured wire or fine-toothed saw to remove small applications of this type of tape cuts between the bonded objects. To extract larger applications of VBH structural tape, a 3M side molding and emblem removal tool breaks apart the fastened materials. A heat gun or a hair dryer also helps loosen the adhesive for easier separation of two objects.

What Removes 3M Double-Sided Tape Adhesive?
Commercially prepared adhesive solvent removes most types of adhesive. Other options include bug and tar cleaners and citrus-based cleaners. If the appearance of the surface is not a concern, then a grinder or a stripping tool also clears away the adhesive.
