Case Study: Molded Automotive Trim

The Story: Customer needed a bonding tape to attach molded trim to automotive paint. The part needed to hold shape during installation & align with the mating component.

What is the application?
Bonding tape between molded polypropylene and automotive paint
What issues was the end user having?
Fixturing & alignment during installation
What material used to solve the issue?
3M EX-4011
Why was the material chosen for the application?
EX4011 demonstrates very good adhesion to modern automotive surfaces which are difficult to adhere. One tape side is covered with a special, high performance adhesive for automotive paint systems, the other acrylic adhesive offers good adhesion to low-energy-surface substrates without additional primer treatment.
Did the material improve the process?
Yes, Precision Converting die cut the rectangular shaped part with a clear carrier to allow visual alignment & restraint during assembly. The carrier tape became the alignment fixture for the customer, thus saving time and money during assembly.
What industry/market was this material used in?
Automotive – Electric Vehicles
 

Precision Converting came through where our last converter failed. Their application engineers really took the time to understand our challenges and delivered the best solution. They even saved us money.
