Double-sided tape 4202 is a very high tack product suitable for applications where a permanent internal fixture is required. This tape is predominantly used on light to medium weight applications, such as plastics. Double-sided tape 4202 consists of a polyester carrier with a high coat-weight of rubber adhesive applied to either side. This tape can be used when a thin bond line is essential.

Benefits of double-sided tape 4202
- Double-sided tape 4202 is ideal when permanent internal fixture and a thin bond line is required.
- This product is used in information boards constructed of Foamex or Dibond, mirrors bonded into apertures and seaming banners within the signage industry.
- Due to it’s high coat-weight of adhesive, double-sided tape 4202 is a very strong and versatile product, often described as a heavy-duty double-sided tape.
How to apply double-sided tape 4202
Before applying double-sided foam tape 4202, surfaces should be clean, dry and free of any dirt, dust and grease. For the best results, we recommend using CTA IPA Cleaner Degreaser.
- Use sufficient pressure over the whole surface at room temperature to ensure maximum adhesion to substrates.
- The ideal application temperature is between 21 – 40°C.
- Elevated temperature following application (60°C for 1 hour) improves adhesion wet-out.
- Primers can increase the bond performance and surface tension. We recommend CTA Primer or CTA UV Identifiable Primer to achieve the best results.
- Ensure uniform stress distribution.
