3M Adhesion Primer
3M Adhesion Primer / Promoter
A Must Have item for Dealers and Installers. All Boogey Lights® LED strips have 3M Tape backing affixed to them. This 3M Tape is designed to make a more-or-less permanent bond between the LED strip and the surface to which it is attached. When properly prepared, 3M Tape can be affixed to polyethylene, polypropylene, ABS, PET/PBT blends, concrete, wood, glass, metal and painted metal surfaces. To make this bond you must however prepare the surface to which the LED strip will be affixed. You do this by first cleaning the surface with isopropyl alcohol (50/50 mixture with water) and then painting on 3M Adhesion Promoter. YOU CANNOT SKIP THIS STEP. Always apply 3M Adhesion Promoter to any surface Boogey Lights® LED strips will be mounted. The promoter acts as a primer that ensures maximum adhesion. Porous surfaces may require 2 applications of 3M Promoter for uniform coverage and good adhesion. If you are going to add a second coat, allow the first application of promoter to dry before applying the second coat. Simply use a clean, dry cloth to apply it to the mounting surface.
The process of preparing the surface with 3M Promoter is as follows:
- Clean the surface with alcohol. Be sure to let the alcohol dry completely before proceeding.
- Apply 3M Promoter to the area where you will be mounting your lights (do not get the promoter on your hands - read all product handling warnings)
- Wait 30-90 seconds to allow the 3M Promoter to dry.
- Mount your lights.
Once the 3M tape touches the surface that has been promoted, it will adhere to the surface and is very difficult to move.
