General Mount Guidelines
Panduit pressure sensitive adhesive (foam tape) mounts are intended to secure wire bundles or other light
objects to smooth surfaces. These mounts are not designed to support excessive loads and should not be
used when the maximum expected load exceeds the rated capacity of the mount.
Choosing the Right Adhesive
Panduit offers two standard pressure sensitive foam tapes which are available on most adhesive backed
wiring accessories products. The general purpose tape is produced with a rubber based adhesive and is
identified by an “-A” in the part number. This tape develops its strength extremely fast and can be used in
environments with temperatures ranging from -20°F (-29°C) to 120°F (49°C). It is recommended that rubber
based adhesive mounts dwell 2 hours after installation, prior to loading. Rubber based adhesive tape is the
best choice for most adhesive mount applications, including powder coated surfaces.
Acrylic based adhesive tape is also available and is identified by an “-AT in the part number. This tape is for
use in environments where continuous exposure to temperatures ranging from -20°F (-29°C) to 180°F (82°C)
is possible. Acrylic based adhesive develops its maximum strength over a longer period of time than rubber
based adhesive. It is recommended that acrylic adhesive mounts dwell 8 hours after installation, prior to
loading. Acrylic based adhesive tape is a good choice for environments with exposure to UV rays or
temperatures above 120°F (49°C).
Panduit adhesive backed cable accessories are also available pre-installed with high bond acrylic-based
adhesive. This adhesive can be used in applications with continuous use temperatures ranging from
-31°F (-35°C) to 200°F (93°C), though higher temperatures may be possible for short-term exposure.
High Bond cable accessories are recommended for use in demanding applications such as where high
temperatures are required, or where fatigue loading is expected.
Panduit also offers a 2-part epoxy for use in applications where excessive loading is required, or where the
surface to which the mount must be applied is porous rather than smooth. Panduit EMA adhesive is a 2-part
epoxy cement which is packaged in convenient mixer cups containing an equal amount of resin and hardener.
Peel the protective covering off and pop the center of the cup in to form a mixing bowl. Each cup is supplied
with a mixer stick and contains enough epoxy to properly apply three EMS mounts. The resin and hardener
should be thoroughly mixed together until the epoxy is a consistent and uniform color. The mixer stick can then
be used to apply the adhesive to the mount. The epoxy should be forced into the grooves on the bottom of the
mount to obtain optimum bond performance. The mount should be applied to the surface with light pressure and
a back-and-forth twisting motion. Hardening of the epoxy begins five minutes after mixing at room temperature.
Panduit adhesive mounts provide a quick, economical, and dependable
method of supporting, routing, and protecting wires or cables. Some are
used with Panduit cable ties and others can be used without cable ties.
Adhesive backed mounts adhere to a variety of surfaces. This alternative
to mechanical fasteners offers the advantage of lower installed cost with
safe, easy to use, quality products.
Applications
To route wires in control panels and switchboards
To support bundles of wires away from moving mechanical devices
Routing and harnessing cables, both indoors and out, to prevent safety hazards
To organize flat cables in many locations with low profile construction
Ideal for supporting wire bundles where holes cannot be made in the substrate
To separate groups of wires for identification

Proper Storage Conditions
All Panduit adhesive products have an expiration date printed on the package label. Use the following
storage guidelines:
1. For rubber and acrylic based foam tape adhesives, store in temperatures of 70°F (21°C) and 45%
Relative Humidity (R.H.).
2. For epoxy type adhesives, store in temperatures of 40°F (4°C) to 75°F (25°C) and relative humidity not in
excess of 45%. Storage in opened containers is not recommended. Using the guidelines above, the shelf life of
foam tape is 3 years. Shelf life of epoxy is 1 year. Deviation from the recommended storage conditions may
reduce the shelf life or adhesive strength. In any case, adhesive products should never be stored near heating
vents or other heat sources, and storage in lower temperatures than those recommended may increase the
shelf life.
Stock Rotation
Adhesive mount inventory should be rotated in order to
insure the quality of the adhesive foam tape. Each package
of Panduit adhesive backed mounts has a quality control
number and a best-if-used-by date on the package label.
The best-if-used-by date provides the customer with an
accurate way to control the rotation of inventory, and,
as is the case with all Panduit products, the quality control
number provides complete traceability for all components
that go into a specific production run of product.
Mount Removal
There is no simple or easy method for removing Panduit adhesives. A thin wire or razor blade can be moved
in between the surfaces when removing foam tape mounts; however, the adhesive residue will remain on the
surface. Epoxy adhesives may be removed with a commercial paint stripping solution.
Best-If-Used-By Date
Selection and Use of Adhesive Mounts (continued)
Surface Preparation
For best results, Panduit adhesive mounts should be applied to clean, dry, grease-free surfaces.
We recommend that the surface be cleaned prior to mount installation. For rubber and acrylic based
foam tape adhesives, a blend of isopropyl alcohol and water 50/50 may be used to clean most surfaces.
For epoxy type adhesives, especially masonry surfaces, be sure to clean all loose particles away before mount
installation. Some surface abrasion is recommended to achieve maximum strength. A light rubbing with medium
grit emery cloth or sandpaper is best. Wash after abrading.
Proper Installation Techniques For Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Mounts
For proper installation of adhesive mounts with foam tape, simply remove the release liner and place the mount
in the desired location. Avoid touching the adhesive prior to positioning the mount. Apply firm pressure to the
mount for 5 seconds to insure proper adhesion.

1) Clean surface with a
clean cloth and
isopropyl alcohol.
2) Allow surface to air dry. 3) Remove the release
liner, being careful not
to touch the adhesive.
4) Apply full thumb
pressure for at least
5 seconds.
5) Allow mount to
properly dwell.
