Tapes and Adhesives


At 3M, we design, manufacture, and market a broad range of specialty adhesives, double-sided bonding and adhesive transfer tapes, and reclosable fastners.  These products are sold into many industries and market centers such as aerospace, architecture and construction, converters, electronics, and transportation.

Adhesives

Today, more and more companies are finding new ways to manufacture their products. From the initial concept onwards, new materials such as plastics and composites are playing an increasingly important role. Added to that is the need to find alternatives to the more traditional methods of fixing, such as welds, rivets and screws. Increasingly, adhesives are proving to be the answer. By concentrating on the right chemistry needed to work with the new generation of materials, 3M has developed convenient systems for applying these adhesives which are ideal for today's production environment.

Cushioning Products

3M™ Bumpon™ Moulded Products provide you with a simple, reliable way to eliminate slipping, dampen sound and protect surfaces from damage. The high performance adhesive eliminates the need for costly operations, such as drilling, screwing or riveting.

The special polyurethane formulation ensures that they will not mark surfaces, soften, crack or lose their shape. The roll materials let you die-cut customised shapes with ease and to your specific requirements.

Choose the optimum fastening performance to suit your needs from our range of hidden fastening systems. Our re-closable fasteners let you reseal or remove content quicker and easier than ever.

When a 3M™ Dual Lock™ Fastener is pressed together, hundreds of mushroom-shaped stems interlock with one another — a secure attachment that can be opened and closed 1,000+ times.
For 5000+ easy closings and openings, the hooks and loops of 3M™ Scotchmate™ Fasteners mesh together for quick fastening.  Select from pressure-sensitive adhesive-backed or plain-backed fasteners.
