3M Re-workable electronic adhesives, available to the US for the first time, are slit and die cut at Strouse.


Westminster, Maryland - 3M Electronics Markets Materials Division introduces 3M Electronic Double Sided Tape 86220B. This 3M Low Surface Energy (LSE) adhesive has a Polyamide Core (PAC) allowing a strong bond to most surfaces but with a stretch release mechanism for clean removal. This adhesive is mostly used in electronics applications for lens bonding and liquid crystal monitor (LCM) attachment. 3M 86220B has been extremely popular in the Asian markets and is now introduced to the US.

Salvaging parts poses a problem for manufacturers as they manage in-process design changes and returns. Typically, electronic components are extremely difficult to separate once bonded to the device and solvents are used to salvage these parts. The 3M PAC stretch release mechanism works similar to that of the popular 3M Command Strips which allows electronic components to be salvaged.

"Many solvents used to remove adhesive residue can harm many key components," says Mark Zabell, Account Executive for 3M Electronics Markets Materials Division. "#86220B eliminates the need for any solvent cleanup."

At Strouse the 3M 86220B can be die cut on a roll to specified dimensions for cell phones and display screens for medical and other electronic devices. The flexible polyamide carrier adds stability to the adhesive for accurate die cutting and slitting.
