Salesman Note: A question I often get asked is: "Do I really need 06396 Adhesion Promotor for the attachment tape to stick?".
My Answer: Yes and No. No, if you don't care if it falls off after a period of time. Yes, if you don't want to worry about the double sided tape turning loose. The double sided tape turning loose is not the real problem. It's the fact that you're taking a chance of loosing or destroying a high priced molding or emblem. Some moldings may cost as much as $200.00. Sometimes cutting costs up front isn't economical in the long run.
I also get asked, "Is rubbing alcohol the same things as the 3m 6396 adhesion promotor?" No, this actually uses a type of bonding agent to help the tape adhere to the molding or emblem and to plastic bumpers on the car. Don't cut corners to save pennies when it can cost you big dollars in the long term.
