3M™ Double Coated Tape 96042 consists of a 2.0 mil white, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) liner and a silicone adhesive on both sides of a clear, PET carrier. The silicone adhesive produces good initial quick-stick and the adhesive bonds build in strength over time. With exceptional temperature and solvent resistance, this double coated tape performs well for many tough applications.
Quick-to-Stick Tape for Difficult-to-Bond Surfaces
Designed with good initial quick-stick, 3M™ Double Coated Tape 96042 is built with a white, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) liner and a silicone adhesive on both sides of a clear, PET carrier. This silicone adhesive provides high bond strength to most silicones and difficult-to-bond to substrates, including silicone rubbers and foams. The strength of this quick-stick adhesive builds over time while offering exceptional temperature performance. Its solvent-resistant properties add durability and resilience.
3M™ Double Coated Tape 96042 was designed with a single liner, providing stable differential release for easy application.

What is Double Coated Tape?
In general, double coated tape is composed of a paper, film, or tissue carrier that is coated on both sides with pressure sensitive adhesive. The adhesive is protected by a peel-away liner that is removed at the time of application. These tapes can be applied by hand or with a dispenser. Double coated tape dispensers are available in a variety of configurations ranging from manual to fully automatic. Applications for double coated tape are found in electronics, automotive, aerospace, general industrial, and fabrication markets.
