I like to wait a couple days for the adhesive to nano adhere to the surface.

I believe it's VHB 4950, but I will check tomorrow to be sure.

Alcohol is great for the tape alone…... but NOT FOR SIKAFLEX, as it inhibits the bonding strength and the curing process (per Sika Corp. tech support). That's why I only use Carb cleaner……..always! It has never failed me.

AM Solar told me they use VHB 4950. Got that a couple of years ago from Roger at AMSolar. You can get rolls on Amazon.
