3M™ Thermally Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tapes
9882 • 9885 • 9890
Product Description
3M™ Thermally Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tapes 9882, 9885, and 9890 are designed to provide a preferential heattransfer path between heat-generating components and heat sinks or other cooling devices (e.g., fans, heat spreaders or
heat pipes).
• These tapes are pressure sensitive adhesives loaded with thermally conductive ceramic fillers. Pressure is needed to form
a bond. Heat and pressure may be needed on some substrates to achieve an acceptable bond.
• The specialized acrylic chemistry of these tapes provide for good thermal stability of the base polymer.
• The thermally conductive tapes are on a silicone treated polyester release liner for ease of handling and die cutting.
• The tapes offer both good thermal conductivity and good electrical insulation properties.
• Tapes 9882, 9885, and 9890 provide best adhesion results when used with high surface energy substrates. If using low
surface energy material, 3M™ Thermally Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tapes 8805, 8810, 8815, or 8820 could provide
a higher adhesion bond and improved wet-out of the surface..

3M™ Thermally Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tapes

Application Guidelines
1.) Substrate surfaces should be clean and dry prior to tape application. Isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol) applied with a lintfree wipe or swab should be adequate for removing surface contamination such as dust or finger prints. Do not use
“denatured alcohol” or glass cleaners, which often contain oily components. Allow the surface to dry for several
minutes before applying the tape. More aggressive solvents (such as acetone, methyl ethyl ketone [MEK] or toluene)
may be required to remove heavier contamination (grease, machine oils, solder flux, etc.) but should be followed by a
final isopropanol wipe as described above.
Note: Be sure to read and follow the manufacturers’ precautions and directions when using primers and solvents.
2.) Apply the tape to one substrate at a modest angle with the use of a squeegee, rubber roller or finger pressure to help
reduce the potential for air entrapment under the tape during its application. The liner can be removed after positioning
the tape onto the first substrate.
3) Assemble the part by applying compression to the substrates to ensure a good wetting of the substrate surfaces with the
tape. Proper application of pressure (amount of pressure, time applied, temperature applied) will depend upon design of
the parts. Rigid substrates are more difficult to bond without air entrapment as most rigid parts are not flat. Use of a
thicker tape may result in increased wetting of rigid substrates. Flexible substrates can be bonded to rigid or flexible
parts with much less concern about air entrapment because one of the flexible substrate can conform to the other
substrates.

5.) Application Tips:
• For rigid to rigid bonding, a twisting motion during assembly of the substrates will improve wetting. This should be a
back and forth twisting motion during the application of compression.
• For flexible to rigid or flexible to flexible bonding, a roll lamination system may be employed to apply the flexible
substrate down to the rigid (or other flexible) substrate. Rubber nip rollers, heated steel rollers, and other methods can be
employed to bond in a continuous manner.
• Heat can be employed to increase wetting percentage and wetting rate of the substrates and to build room temperature
bond strength.
• Primers may be employed to increase adhesion to low surface energy substrates (eg. plastic packages). Contact your
3M representative for more information about primers.
• For best product performance, it is important to use pressure and time conditions to achieve as much wetting as possible.

Application Guidelines (continued)
6.) Rework Tips:
• Rework requires separation of the two substrates. Separation can be accomplished by any practical means: prying,
torquing or peeling. The tape will be destroyed upon separation and must be replaced. The surfaces should be recleaned according to the recommendations in this data page.
• Heating up the substrates can reduce the adhesion level and make removal easier.
• Part separation can be aided by immersion in warm water. This should eventually reduce the adhesion and make
prying, torquing or peeling apart the substrates easier.
