Automotive foam tape 6118 is a high performance, double-sided grey adhesive tape for demanding applications in the automotive industry, as well as other industries. This product has a high initial tack, perfect for when a permanent high strength is required. Examples of use include attaching trim parts or seals to a car body, automotive panel bonding and badge mounting.

Benefits of automotive foam tape 6118
- At only 0.8mm thick, automotive foam tape 6118 allows for deviations in the substrates and surfaces being bonded.
- This high performance, double-sided adhesive tape is a viable alternative to mechanical fixings such as welding, clipping and screwing.
- This strong tape also has the ability to cope with differing thermal expansions.

How to apply automotive foam tape 6118
Before applying automotive foam tape 6118 surfaces should be clean, dry and free of any dirt, dust and grease. For the best results, we recommend using a degreasing product such as our 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.
- Ensure uniform stress distribution.
- Temperature range is -40°C to +160°C
