Bring Products to Light with 3M™ Ultra Clear Tapes

May 18, 2021

3M™ Ultra Clear Double Coated Tapes UCT-30 and UCT-50 both come with a polyester (PET) carrier as well as two PET liners for dimensional stability. As a 3M™ Select Converter, Zatkoff Manufacturing converts and laminates this product to various substrates.


3M™ Ultra Clear Double Coated Tapes are exceptionally clear, proving especially useful for display screen assembly. Produced in a clean room, these double-sided tapes feature the following benefits:

  • Ultra clear and ultra thin for exceptional appearance
  • 1 mil (UCT-30) and 2 mil (UCT-50) double-sided tapes
  • 90% light transmission and 1.1% haze
  • Good tack and instantaneous adhesion
  • Die-cutting and laminating capability


Generally, these acrylic tapes are ideal for electronic and appliance applications that require excellent initial tack and good adhesion. UCT-30 and UCT-50 are commonly used for:

  • Medical device displays
  • Automotive display attachments
  • Marine displays
  • Backlit graphics (airport signage, elevator buttons)
  • Touchscreen and control panels (thermostats)

It's important to note that these tapes may not bond or conform to rough or sharply-curved surfaces, and that their holding power is reduced in applications with elevated temperatures. For optimal performance, we recommend using these tapes within 18 months from the date of manufacture.
