Flextac Wire Dots: Bond jumper wires to circuit boards.
Bond Jumper Wires - Neat and Fast
Throw away that super glue. Finally a neat and fast way to bond jumper wires to circuit boards.
Flextac Wire Dots are a wire tacking system consisting
of pre-cut shapes of a thin, flexible polymer film membrane
coated on one side with a high performance, electronics
grade permanent pressure sensitive adhesive resulting
in a highly conformable, high strength bond. The adhesive
release liner is an environmentally stable poly-coated
As with any wire tacking material, in order to achieve
maximum bond strength and reliability, application surface
must be clean, dry and free of flux, skin oils and other
contaminants. Clean with isopropyl alcohol or equivalent
Firm application pressure develops better adhesive contact
and thus improves bond strength. Avoid placing Flextac
Wire Dots or any other wire tacking material directly
over exposed copper or plated surfaces.
Flextac Wire Dots will perform best when applied at
temperatures between 60F (15C) and 100F (38C). Do not
apply below 50F (10C).

of detailed illustrations and photographs.
Flextac Wire Dots have very good initial bond strength that
generally increases as a function of time over approximately
72 hours to stabilize as a high strength reliable bond.
High humidity has a minimal effect on adhesive performance.
Bond strengths are actually slightly higher after exposure
for 7 days at 90F (32C) and 90% relative humidity.
Temperature Cycling and Bond
Bond strength generally increases after four times through:
4 hours at 158F (70C)
4 hours at -20F (-29C)
16 hours at room temperature.
Cleaning Process Resistance
(chemical & hot water)
Wire Dots will hold securely after exposure to numerous
chemicals including most flux cleaning solutions/sprays,
saponifiers, "Freon" TF, mild acids and alkalis. Wires will
hold securely through a typical PCB hot water wash.
Low: -40F (-40C)
High short term: 390F (200C)
High long term: 275F (135C)
Flextac Wire Dots can be repositioned during and immediately
after initial bonding without causing adhesive transfer
or loss of bond strength.
Product retains its performance and properties for one year
from date of purchase if properly stored at room temperature
conditions. Storage in plastic bag is recommended.
