ASK A 3M EXPERT
  • 3M adhesives and tapes are easy-to-use and effective, providing quick bonding solutions that outperform many welding and mechanical fastener applications.

    Industrial adhesives and tapes provide key benefits over other industrial assembly methods, including:


    • Eliminate drilling and holes to reduce labour costs and stress concentration
    • Use thinner, lightweight materials to reduce product weight and energy usage
    • Distribute stress evenly across the bond to optimise performance
    • Bond dissimilar materials to enable new designs and prevent corrosion
    • Bond and seal simultaneously to eliminate process steps
    • Reduce vibration in final product to enhance customer experience
