Adhesive Backed Mounts and Devices

SELECTION AND USE OF ADHESIVE BACKED MOUNTS AND DEVICES
PANDUIT offers high performance adhesive backed mounts and devices for a quick, dependable method of
securing, routing and protecting wires or cables. The adhesive backing provides easy installation and is an alternative
to mechanical fasteners. When properly installed, PANDUIT ® Adhesive Backed Mounts and devices offer the advantage
of lower installed cost and high reliability.

Selection of Adhesive
Choose from three types of adhesive systems designed for specific application environments and temperatures: Rubber-based Adhesive
Foam Tape, Acrylic-based Adhesive Foam Tape, or Two-part Epoxy Adhesive. Carefully choosing the correct adhesive and closely following
the recommended installation steps will provide a reliable, long-term bond.
Rubber-Based Adhesive Foam Tape
Rubber-based Adhesive Foam Tape is the best choice for the vast majority of adhesive mount applications, including applications where
powder coated surfaces are being used. This pressure sensitive tape develops its strength extremely fast and can be used in indoor
environments with temperatures ranging from -20°F to 120°F (-29°C to 49°C). Rubber-based Adhesive Foam Tape is the most widely used
and generally recommended foam tape for wire routing applications.
Acrylic-Based Adhesive Foam Tape
Acrylic-based Adhesive Foam Tape is a good choice in applications with prolonged exposure to UV rays or heavy moisture. It is designed
to be used in indoor or outdoor environments where temperatures can vary from -20°F to 180°F (-29°C to 82°C). The
acrylic-based adhesive develops its maximum strength over a longer period of time compared to the rubber-based adhesive. It is
recommended that the mounts dwell eight (8) hours after installation and prior to loading.
Two-Part Epoxy Adhesive
Two-part Epoxy Adhesive is for use in applications where excessive loading is required or where the mounting surface is porous rather
than smooth. This adhesive is formulated specifically for use on PANDUIT ® EMS and ASMS mounts in either indoor or outdoor
applications. It is packaged in convenient pre-measured cups to insure the proper ratio of resin and hardener, as well as eliminate waste.

Guideline for Adhesive
The following chart should be used as a guideline for choosing
the best adhesive for common surfaces and chemical resistance.
Since each application has specific requirements, PANDUIT
recommends that further testing be conducted to determine the
suitability of the adhesive in a specific environment or application.

Proper Installation Steps
Surface Preparation
For best results, mounts should be applied to a clean, dry, and grease-free surface. It is recommended that for each individual application,
a solvent or cleanser be used to thoroughly prepare the surface for mount installation. The following are recommended cleaning guidelines:
Alcohol
1. For Rubber and Acrylic-based Adhesive Foam Tape, a mixture of water and isopropyl alcohol may be used on
most surfaces.
For Two-part Epoxy Adhesive, especially on masonry surfaces, be sure to clean all loose particles away before
mount installation. Some surface abrasion is recommended on smooth surfaces to achieve maximum strength.
A light rubbing with medium grit emery cloth or sandpaper is best. Wash the surface after abrading.
2. Allow the surface to dry completely before applying the mount.
Installing the Mount
1. For proper installation of adhesive backed mounts with foam tape, remove the release liner from the foam
adhesive. Without touching the adhesive, place the mount in the desired location.
For Two-part Epoxy Adhesive Mounts, apply 1/3 of the mixed adhesive to the bottom of the PANDUIT ® EMS or
ASMS mount. Without touching the adhesive, place the mount in the desired location.
2. Apply firm pressure for five (5) seconds to the foam tape mounts to insure proper adhesion.
Two-part Epoxy Adhesive Mounts should be twisted in place to ensure the adhesive is forced into the
porous surface.

3. Allow the mount to remain in place for the recommended dwell time for the specific adhesive being used.
The dwell time for Rubber-based Adhesive Foam Tape is two (2) hours and for Acrylic-based Adhesive Foam
Tape it is eight (8) hours.
Two-part Epoxy Adhesive Mounts can support about 5 lbs. after first fifteen (15) minutes. The adhesive fully
cures after twenty-four (24) hours and bonding strength will exceed 50 lbs.
4. The mount is now ready to be used.
4
Mount Spacing
To determine the number of mounts to use in a given application, the following formula can be used as a guideline:
Cable bundle weight in lbs/foot
Maximum static load rating of the mount*
=
Minimum number of
mounts per foot
For example, to determine the mount spacing using part number ABM2S-A-C for an application with a bundle of wires that weigh one
pound per foot, the formula would be:
1 pound per foot
0.5 lbs load rating
=
2 mounts per foot
* See pages 6-7 for static load ratings.
Proper Storage Conditions
Mounts and adhesives should be kept in the original packaging until they are ready to be applied. Store at room temperature 70°F (21°C)
with 45% or less relative humidity. Avoid storing adhesive products near heating vents or other heating sources.
Using the guidelines above, the average shelf life of adhesive foam tape is three (3) years from the date of manufacture. The shelf life of
Two-part Epoxy Adhesive is one (1) year from the date of manufacture. Failing to follow the recommended storage conditions may reduce
the shelf life or adhesive strength of the foam tape and Two-part Epoxy Adhesive.
Adhesive Technical Information
Adhesive foam tape properties are developed with thorough laboratory research and testing. The double-coated adhesive foam tape used
on PANDUIT ® Adhesive Backed Mounts is manufactured under strict quality requirements, which provide consistent, high quality
performance for use on adhesive mounts. Each package of mounts has an expiration date and a Quality Control number printed on the
label, which permit traceability.
