    • 3M Wind Protection Tapes

      Wind blades often turn up to 200 mph (320 kph). At this speed, tiny objects such as sand, rain, hail and salt spray can cause enough damage to reduce wind blade aerodynamics. And if the blade deteriorates to the point where water enters, the blade could fail, severely impacting the entire wind turbine. 3M Wind Protection Tapes can significantly reduce and even eliminate leading edge erosion in wind turbine blades. Based on similar technology used to protect helicopter blades and aircraft radomes, these exceptionally tough, puncture-resistant tapes are easy to apply either at the blade manufacturer or in the field. They can help extend the useful life of turbine blades in even the harshest environment.

    • Post-it® Note Brainstorm Lists

      Here's a helpful tip to make sure you impress with your gift giving this Christmas...

      The first step is to figure out who you need to buy for. Using Post-it® Lined Notes create categories such as family, friends, office, and school. Then list all the possible gift recipients in each category. Be generous with your first attempt at a list – you can always trim it down later, and you don't want to miss someone unintentionally.

      Brainstorm gift ideas: Get a pad of Post-it® Super Sticky Notes and create a note for each person on your list by writing their name on it. Now, jot down as many gift ideas as you can for each person, trying to stay within your budget numbers. You may be able to re-use ideas from one person to the next, especially with people who fill similar roles, like teachers or co-workers. Don't forget homemade gifts like cookies or jam as options in this section - they can really help with your budget. This is a good project for a cold afternoon spent cozily in front of the computer, surfing for inspiration, but it's also fun to get the rest of the family involved. For teachers, grandparents or mutual friends, each family member can make their own Post-it® Note brainstorm list, and then you can put them all together and compare.

    • 3M Reflective Signage

      The world has changed immensely since 3M installed the first fully reflective traffic sign in 1939, but our technology leadership and commitment to traffic safety is as strong as ever. How important are brighter signs? A study from the University of Iowa found a direct relationship between a sign's brightness and a driver's ability to see the sign and its message. Study participants were able to read and understand brighter signs substantially faster. This study suggests that brighter signs require less eyes-off-the-road time, leaving drivers more focused on the task of driving—an especially important advantage when driving during the dark and treacherous winter months.

    • 3M Paint Protection Film
