Follows the shrinkage and elongation of the plastic part caused by the temperature change, and has good stress relaxation properties which are very important for the automotive parts attachments.
Has a high final adhesion and peel strength.
Excels in a variety of weather, solvent and high temperature resistance.

3M EX4500 Series

3M™ Acrylic Plus Tape Series EX4500 is a series of deep black, double-coated acrylic foam tapes designed for the attachment of automotive exterior trim parts – without the use of adhesion promoter. 3M series EX4500 tapes offer an advanced adhesive system – on both sides of the product – that adheres well to traditional, medium surface energy, and scratch- and mar-resistant automotive paint and polymer systems. The initial product offering will be in the 45 mil (1.1 mm) caliper.

EX4500 Features:EX4500 Applications:
Primerless adhesion capability – allowing for adhesion to medium surface energy plastics without the use of adhesion promoter.Bumper sensors
Excellent adhesion to traditional, low surface energy, and scratch and mar resistant automotive paints and medium surface energy plastics on both liner and non-liner sides of the product.
Unique foam core that provides stress relaxation when high application loads are encountered, while maintaining tight bond-line aesthetics under normal conditions.
Nested components
Deep black color which provides excellent bond-line appearance
Window visors
and other aftermarket accessories
