Bonding Neoprene to other materials

Bonding Neoprene to other materials

Bonding Neoprene to other materials

(OP)
Hi,
I am hoping that someone can help me.
We are building a prototype product that requires us to bond small mylar squares to neoprene rubber.  I have heard that Pressure Sensitive Adhesives are the way to go.  We have tried 3M 300 LSE (low surface energy) with some success.  Does anyone have any experience bonding neoprene to other materials?

Thanks,

JW

We use 300L to bond neoprene to Al. and fiberglass with great results, but you can't use it out of the can. It has to be thinned and ther are other procederes involved. I can give you more details it you are interested.

RE: Bonding Neoprene to other materials

I regularly bond neoprene to wood with CA adhesive,  which works exceptionally well.  Perhaps it would work as well with other materials

RE: Bonding Neoprene to other materials

How are you using the Mylar over Neoprene? How thick is the Mylar? I assume that the 300LSE stays with the Mylar when you peel away from Neo surface. Also, is the surface of the Neo smooth or textured? Using under high temp or outdoor?  300LSE is a widely used adhesive in supported and unsupported versions, (1.9 mil. and up). Let me know more about the end use and I can suggest and pressure-sensitive that will work.  We rotary die-cut and laminte many of these types of items every day (Specialty Converting) in the Los Angeles Area.
