Specialty Tapes for the Fabrication of Shower EnclosuresExcellent for Use With Seals and Wipes Instant Pressure Sensitive Bonding, With Full Strength in 72 HoursTransparent Water Clear or Translucent Color ChoiceOur CRL Transparent Acrylic Very Hi-Bond Tape is used in adhesive applications involving glass or other clear materials, making it ideal for adhering clear polycarbonates, edge wipes and seals used in frameless shower installations. Other applications include skin-to-frame assemblies, furniture, appliances, auto trim attachment, window grids, signs, graphics, construction uses to replace mechanical fasteners and welds, and whenever a waterproof bond in a wide range of temperature conditions exists.This tape possesses a uniform high-tack acrylic adhesive on both surfaces, and will bond to most clean, dry, oil-free substrates. It is non-staining after aged contact, has a solid composition for clean cutting, and is flexible, moldable and compressible, so it can conform to intricate shapes. CRL Very Hi-Bond Adhesive Tapes can be applied at 50 to 100 degree Fahrenheit (10 to 38 degree Celsius), and will maintain their adhesion at sub-zero temperatures. After application, the bond strength will increase as the adhesive flows onto the surface. At room temperature, approximately 50 percent of the ultimate strength will be achieved after 20 minutes, 90 percent after 24 hours, and 100 percent after 72 hours. The speed can be increased by raising the temperature to 150 degree Fahrenheit (65.5 degree Celsius) for a period of one hour. Its solid acrylic core gives it superior strength, and allows for clean cuts.
Shelf Life: 12 months when properly stored.
