Double-sided foam tape 5175HD is a high-density foam combined with a high, shear, solvent acrylic adhesive. This combination makes this double-sided foam tape ideal for interior use as well as some exterior applications. The cross-linked polyethylene foam gives this tape excellent weather resistance.

How to apply double-sided foam tape 5175HD
Before applying this tape, 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
