In addition to bonding, joint sealing is an important factor in rail vehicles to prevent the penetration of water and corrosion. The joint materials are easy to smooth for a visually appealing joint. They have been tested for their resistance to railway-specific media (e.g. cleaning agents). The materials are partly qualified by OEMs and large railway operators and tested according to EN45545-2.
3M™ Double Coated Tape GPT-020F have high instant adhesion, high temperature and humidity resistance and excellent shear performance. The tapes bond to many high surface energy substrates and some low surface energy substrates, including stainless steel, HDPE, ABS, acrylic, PP, polycarbonate, aluminium or glass. The tape is suitable for various markets and applications including POP/POS displays, light boxes, sports equipment, indoor and outdoor signs, furniture trim attachment, mounting of electronics or plastic parts.
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ 2-part acrylic based adhesive DP8005/DP8010
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ acrylic based adhesives withstand extreme temperatures, develop strength quickly and feature high impact and peel resistance. They are suitable for bonding most plastics, aluminum, steel, lightly oily metal surfaces, and low surface energy plastics (PE, PP, TPE). 3M™'s acrylic based adhesives are quick and easy to apply and provide bonds that replace metal fasteners for improved aesthetics. 3M™ acrylic adhesives are available in low-odor and non-flammable versions. Among 3M™'s most popular construction adhesives are the 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ DP8005 and 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ DP8010.
