Formulated for use with 3M Automotive Double Sided Adhesive
What's in the Box
(2) Adhesion Promoter Packet
This 3M Adhesion Promoter should be part of your process is you are installing anything that uses 3M Automotive Double Sided Tape.
The bonding surface should be clean and dry. Contaminated surfaces should be cleaned with an untreated, lint-free cloth and a mild soap & water solution. Follow this by wiping with another untreated, lint-free cloth and isopropyl alcohol.
3M™ Adhesion Promoter 06396 is supplied in an easy-to-use sponge applicator packet. The liquid contents of the packet should be completely used as soon as possible after opening. Hold packet upright and avoid squeezing an opened packet to prevent spillage of liquid contents. The packet can be opened by tearing across the top of the packet at the notches. This will expose the sponge applicator. Do not remove the sponge or squeeze a freshly opened packet. Handling the bottom section of the packet should enable application of 3M adhesion promoter 06396 with no mess.
Apply a thin, uniform coating to the bonding surface, using the minimum amount that will fully coat the surface. A wet coating thickness of 0.002 inch or less ensures a good application. Although drying times may vary due to temperature and/or humidity, a drying time of 30-90 seconds results with a coating of this thickness. The primer should be dry before applying tape. For best results, apply tape immediately after primer application or no more than one hour after primer application. Be sure the primer surface remains free from contaminants prior to tape application.
3M adhesion promoter 06396 can be cleaned up with methylethyl ketone (MEK) or acetone solvents (be careful with solvents on plastics). Vigorous scrubbing may be required. To prevent cosmetic damage to visible surfaces, be sure to apply the promoter or any solvents only to areas that will be fully covered by the part.
Caution: When using solvents for cleanup, use the precautionary measures recommended in the MSDS for the solvent.
First, the good news. these adhesive promoters worked well on my 1990 coupe. The negative is that I bought the complete (six piece) body molding kit which came with two adhesive promoters and it was NOT enough. So I had to spend the extra ten dollars for these two. I would suggest that when Latemodel Restoration sells the kit with all six pieces that they include at least three packets of adhesive promoter.
