Choose the right tape for the right job.
3M Adhesive Tapes
Acrylic adhesives open the door to solving the challenges of speed, strength and product shelf life. Attach. Seal. Reduce noise. Expand your materials—and your design possibilities. Advanced adhesives keep it together under the harshest of conditions, while you feel the thrill of defying creative limitations.
3M VHB Tapes
With 3M™ VHB™ Tapes, you can maintain consistency from sketch to construction, eliminating distracting, visible fasteners, like screws and bolts. These high-strength, double-sided acrylic foam tapes let you quickly and easily create a long-lasting bond that actually builds strength over time.
3M™ Durable Protective Film
It’s easy to add an extra layer of protection to high-touch surfaces with 3M™ Durable Protective Film, which features a scratch, abrasion and chemical resistant hardcoat. The hardcoat contains a built-in EPA-registered silver ion antimicrobial additive to protect the hardcoat, which will reasonably last the lifetime of the coating.
