Cleaner & Primers for Double Sided Acrylic Foam Tape

To achieve the perfect bond, surface preparation is a must when applying High Bond Double Sided Acrylic Foam Tape. The Silver Clean and Primers 33 and 101 will help you to reach this by offering excellent cleaning and priming characteristics.

Silver Clean for Double Sided Acrylic Foam Tape 

The Omni Silver Clean is an isopropanol /alcohol mixture (IPA). This cleaner has excellent de-greasing capabilities and is, due to its volatile nature, extremely suitable for time critical applications which many of our customers use. The Silver Clean is suitable for light to medium contaminated materials. Grease, dust, oils etc.  are easily removed by this cleaner. In case of high contamination levels, Omni advises a more aggressive cleaner like MEK, Heptan or Acetone. The principles of door production are basically the same; a panel (composite, wood, plastic etc,) is bonded to a steel or aluminum frame.

Silver Clean Pre-drenched IPA Cleaner Towels

No more bottles of cleaner, no more spills, easy to use, less waste – some of the advantages of the new Omni Silver Clean pre-drenched towels. The mixture of 96% Isopropyl Alcohol and 4% Deionized Water ensures the level of cleaning needed for the use of the Omni Silver Tapes. The standard packages contain 100 towels. The polyester cellulose non-woven towels are 153mm x 216mm in size and are absolutely lint free to prevent contamination of your bonding surface.

Primer 101UV and 201 –Applying for Double Sided Acrylic Foam Tape to Glass

To complete the range of Primers, we now offer the Primer 101UV, which is the standard 101 primer with a UV tracer to check the use of primer in the production process. Besides this, we also offer the Primer 201, a silane primer especially for the bonding of glass.  Because of the hydrophilic characteristics of glass, the microscopic pores of the glass are “filled” with this primer to effectuate the best substrate for bonding.

Primers 33 & 101 –Applying for Double Sided Acrylic Foam Tape to Panels

Primers are designed to work in conjunction with acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive systems.  When used correctly, adhesion promoters become a thin film on the surface of the material on which it is applied. The film anchors itself onto the material surface.  The surface energy of this film is typically higher than the material to which the adhesion promoter is applied. The higher the surface energy level, the better is the bond of the pressure sensitive adhesive. The adhesion promoters are compatible with Omni Group Silver Tape double sided acrylic foam tape.

With the use of Silver Tape, these noises are minimised or eliminated altogether. Besides this, you can imagine the aesthetics are very important to these manufacturers as well. Applications in this industry are floor, wall and ceiling panels as well as the lighting and instrument panels.
