3M™ X-Series Hi-Tack Transfer Tape XT2112 offers a balance between high initial adhesion and good holding power to bond well to smooth but hard-to-stick-to surfaces such as coated papers, paperboard and plastics.
Adheres Well to Smooth, but Difficult-to-Stick-to Surfaces
3M™ X-Series Hi-Tack Transfer Tape XT2112 features 5 mils of adhesive coated on a 55# white densified kraft paper liner. This high tack tape can withstand temperatures as high as 180°F/82°C short term and 150°F/66°C long term. The softer adhesive "wets-out" the surface, maximizing contact to create a strong, permanent bond on smooth, but difficult-to-stick to materials, including plastic trim, moldings and emblems.
Plastic trim, moldings and emblems
Holds securely to coated papers, film, fabrics, many foams and textured surfaces
Sets the Standards for Affordable Adhesion
3M™ X-Series Tapes System makes selecting the right high-quality tape easier than ever. Broken into four simple categories, you can quickly find a tape that aligns with your specific application. In addition, our X-Series Tapes are manufactured in the United States to exact quality standards.
XP – High Performance – superior holding power over a range of temperatures
XG – General Purpose Acrylic – a clean acrylic adhesive for paper bonding and sensitive applications
XT – High Tack Acrylic – excellent initial adhesion for hard-to-stick surfaces
XR – Rubber Adhesive – good initial grab and clean removal on many surfaces
Understanding Adhesive Transfer Tapes
3M adhesive transfer tapes are rolls of pressure sensitive adhesive provided on a special release liner. The tape consists of an adhesive layer only, and does not have any type of supporting carrier such as film, paper or tissue. For application the tape is positioned adhesive side down to a surface and the liner is removed, exposing the backside adhesive to the joining surface.
