Handling/Application Information

Application Techniques 3M™ ScotchPad™ Tape Pad 3750P should be removed one at a time by grasping the end with a liner and pulling the sheet free from the pad. Place the far end of the sheet in the desired location and allow the sheet to adhere from that end back to the tabbed end. Flip out the tab and press the whole sheet flat. The pad can be adhered in a convenient location when the back sheet of the pad is peeled away and the pad is placed on a vertical surface or on a table, then only one hand is needed to dispense tape sheets for use. Application of ScotchPad Tape Pad 3750P is easiest at room temperature. At colder temperatures, approaching 32°F (0°C), the adhesive becomes more firm. Once applied, tape sheets perform well throughout the normal temperature ranges typically encountered by packaged products in shipping and storage environments.

Storage and Shelf Life Store in a clean, dry place. Temperature of 40-80°F (4-26°C) and 40-50% relative humidity are recommended. To obtain best performance, use this product within 18 months from date of manufacture.

Application Ideas

Tape 924 is ideal for bonding a wide variety of similar and dissimilar materials such as metals, glass, wood, papers, paints, and many plastics. Some application ideas include:

• Mounting promotional items, posters, etc.

• Core starting.

• Mounting picture frame mat boards and dust covers.

Application Techniques

• Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact developed. Firm application pressure helps develop better adhesive contact and improve bond strength.

• To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean, dry and well unified. Typical surface cleaning solvents are isopropyl alcohol and water (rubbing alcohol) or heptane. Note: Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use when using solvents.

• 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.

Storage and Shelf Life 24 months from date of manufacture when stored in original cartons at 70°F (21°C) and 50% relative humidity.
