Product Replaced

Mechanical screws had been previously used. This process was slow and inconsistent in drawing the kick plate to the bottom of the door.

Benefits/Advantages To Customer

Easy to use, quick to apply: 3MVHBTape is applied to the cleaned surface of the kick and pressurized. The liner is removed and the taped kick plate is applied and pressurized to the metal skin.

Aesthetically pleasing: The VHB tape system of attachment provides a clean, smooth finish to the kick plate. Metal corrosion concerns are eliminated.

Long-lasting: Specially formulated adhesive and tape construction provide a strong, lasting bond between the kick plate and the door skin.

Helps damp vibration: The viscoelastic properties of the foam core help damp vibration between the kick plate and the door skin during operation of the door.

Versatile: VHB tapes offer a wide selection of adhesive systems that allow bonding the kick plate to the bottom of the door either before or after the painting process. 3MVHBTape 5952 bonds well to most painted metals and plastics without surface priming or abrading. The specially formulated synthetic adhesive bonds to most paints and powder coats.
