Our 3M™ Adhesion Promoter 111 is a fast-acting, isopropyl alcohol based solution designed to promote better and faster adhesion of 3M™ VHB™ Tapes. This product works particularly well for adhering 3M™ VHB Tapes to high surface energy substrates like galvanized steel, bare metals, and painted surfaces.

Additional Information

N/A Scientific Assistance
Even the best products can use a bit of assistance on occasion, and that's the idea behind our 3M™ Adhesion Promoter 111. It's designed to help our 3M™ VHB™ Tapes adhere to high energy substrates which are historically difficult to form an adhesive bond against. This includes surfaces such as galvanized steel, bare metals, and painted surfaces. The isopropyl alcohol based formula dries in one minute to maximize working time and eliminate downtime. Unlike many alcohol-based chemicals, it emits a non-offensive odor.

Clean, Prime, and Adhere with Confidence
In addition to aiding in adhesion, out 3M™ Adhesive Primer 111 also works as a surface primer on some surfaces. It cleans and promotes adhesion in a single step, provided the surface is relatively clean and free of wax, grease, oil, and loose particles, saving you both time and effort. When tape is bonded in conjunction with our Adhesive Promoter, it increases the chemical and moisture resistance of the bond while adding additional sheer strength; this ensures the tape won't migrate or unexpectedly detach from the surface.

N/A This product, including any article that the product is composed of, does not contain at greater than 0.1% by weight a Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) substance identified according to Article 59 of REACH. This declaration reflects the substances on the candidate SVHC list, effective July 2019.


N/A This product does not exceed the maximum concentration values (MCVs) for phthalates set under EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS recast/RoHS 2), as amended by EU 2015/863, which applies to finished EEE after July 22, 2019 for Category 1-7, 10-11 products and after July 22, 2021 for Category 8 and 9 products. This means that each of the homogeneous materials within this product does not exceed the MCV of 0.1% (by weight) for each of the following phthalates: DEHP, BBP, DBP, and DIBP.


  • Increases bond strength on surfaces that are traditionally difficult to adhere, such as paint and metal
  • Isopropyl alcohol based solvent system dries very quickly while producing a non-offensive odor
  • Increased build rate at both normal and cooler temperatures
  • Acts as a primer in certain applications to clean and promote adhesion in a single step, saving time and effort
