Tape Primer To Repair Your TPE Sex Doll

What is 3M™ Tape Primer?

3M™ Tape Primer is a liquid solution designed to be used as an industrial adhesive promoter, "i.e. it helps improve the overall adhesion of the film, vinyl graphic, and tape." This industrial tape primer is made to work on a variety of difficult surfaces including ABS, wood, concrete, metal, glass, polyethylene, PET/PBT blends, polypropylene, and many others. 


It helps the film or tape to stick to difficult surface bends and sharp edges easily. This adhesive promoter has numerous industrial applications. However, in this article, we will discuss how we can use the 3M™ Tape Primer liquid solution to replace TPE glue and cold weld. 

Is It Safe To Use 3M™ Tape Primer With TPE Material?

3M™ Tape Primer consists of several chemical components that are known to work with TPE surfaces. Some of these components include Ethyl Alcohol, Acrylate Polymer, Chlorinated Epoxy Resin, and more. Thanks to these components you can use this adhesive promoter to fix deep cuts, doll joint cracks, and ragged uneven tears.


Can You Use 3M™ Tape Primer To Substitute TPE Glue?

Yes absolutely! As per the accounts of a real doll owner on DollForum, the tape primer works exactly like TPE glue but makes the TPE patches stay in place for longer. It was also noticed that the repaired area did not experience a loss in elasticity and flexibility. The joints fixed using industrial tape primer were as strong as the original TPE joints. The repaired cuts & tears also appear clean and smooth after a gentle blot. The 3M Tape Primer presented the same results when used to join TPE material of different kinds. However, it is required that you test the repair method on a hidden area before trying to fix the visible parts of the doll body. 

Tpe Glue

You can easily buy 3M primer on online shopping stores like Amazon or eBay. Tape primer is to be used in a small amounts and thus will end up saving you money over a long run. A really small amount of primer can do the job for you. A 200ml tape primer bottle you order for under $20 may last for years if you are careful and remember to re-seal it after every use.

Steps to Repair Your Doll Using Tape Primer

You can visit the DollForum if you wish to know the entire process to be followed when using 3M Tape Primer to repair a TPE sex doll. You can follow the steps mentioned on the thread to repair small cuts and cracks on your love doll body. Make sure you start by repairing the parts which are not directly visible before moving to the visible parts. You can also test the technique with spare TPE material before performing the steps on a real doll. 

Important Notice: 

As this is an industrial tape primer and is extremely flammable, you are advised to take all the necessary precautions when handling it. It is also advised that you work in a well ventilated area and wash your hands thoroughly before you eat or touch anything.
