468MP is a firm acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive system. It features high ultimate bond strength with
excellent high temperature performance and excellent solvent resistance.
Bond strength increases substantially with natural ageing. 468MP is a long ageing and resistant product used
extensively by the nameplate industry.

Solvent Resistance:
Excellent, When the adhesive is properly applied to impervious materials, it
will resist solvent attack and adhesive softening through edge contact with mild
acids, alkalines, oils, grease, gasoline kerosene, JP-4 fuel and many other
standard aromatic and aliphatic solvents. However it is not recommended for
Uses where continuos immersion is required.
U.V Light Resistance:
Excellent, Will not oxidise when exposed to air or sunlight UV.
Water Resistance:
Excellent, There are no evident adverse effects on the bond of properly applied
materials after immersion in 21°C water for about 100 hours.

Additional Product Information
468MP is designed with a moisture resistant release liner which resists cockling or wrinkling from high
humidity. The 130-micron thick adhesive is ideally suited for joining materials that are relatively rough or thick
materials with a small degree of residual stress. The peel strength of 468MP is typically 30% higher than the 50micron thick adhesive when measured on the same flat surface. It can be many times higher on embossed or
textured surfaces.
Application Techniques
Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact developed. Firm application
pressure develops better adhesive contact on thus improves bond strength.
To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean dry and well unified. A typical surface
cleaning solvent is isopropyl alcohol and water. Use proper safety precautions for handling solvents.
Ideal tape application temperature range is 21°C to 38°C (70°F to 100°F), Initial tape application to
surfaces at temperatures below 10°C (50°F) is not recommended because the adhesive becomes too firm to
adhere readily. However once properly applied low temperature holding is generally satisfactory.
468MP is well suited for bonding together a wide variety of similar and dissimilar materials such as metals,
paints, wood, glass and some plastics.
An excellent adhesive for mounting nameplates and decorative trim.
Miscellaneous joining and holding where a thin, long ageing bond is required.
