The 3M™ Stretch Laminator is an excellent solution for helping achieve complete lamination of 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes. For use when laminating tape to automotive substrates that are subject to slight shrinkage, it features a clutch assembly and two idler rollers that stretch the tape slightly using consistent tension. This allows the tape to shrink with the substrate, eliminating liner buckling.
Specifically designed for use with 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes that require lamination, the 3M™ Stretch Laminator is ideal for laminating tapes to automotive substrates that will shrink from 1-2% within the first 24 hours of tape application. Use of the stretch laminator can help eliminate buckling of the liner after tape application to maintain a truly smooth, professional appearance even as the substrate shrinks. This durable vertical-mount tool applies uniform, consistent tension to tapes to achieve a light (less than 4%) stretch without liner pop-off or rippling.
