3M™ Products We Use During Manufacturing

AFP is an Authorized 3M™ Select Converter. This means we get to work with one of the top manufacturers in the US and use their long-lasting products in your components. Here are a few 3M products we use during manufacturing:

Adhesives

Tough laminating adhesives that work with challenging surfaces and extreme temperatures. 3M adhesives can keep your parts together and your equipment functioning smoothly.

VHB™ Tapes

These acrylic foam tapes are composed of closed-cell foams with pressure-sensitive adhesive on both sides. 3M VHB™ Tapes are perfect for:

  • Instant bonding
  • Shock absorption
  • Stress distribution
  • Waterproofing
  • Conformability
  • Expansion and contraction

Single-Coated Foam Tapes

3M Single-Coated Foam Tapes can stick to numerous substrates. The urethane series helps:

  • Cushion
  • Seal
  • Dampen sound
  • Absorb vibration

The vinyl series products are:

  • Durable
  • Weather-resistant
  • Flexible during exposure to temperature and light

EMI and EMC Applications

EMI and EMC products protect from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and increase electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). These foils, tapes and gaskets are perfect for:

  • Shielding and absorbing
  • Static charge grounding
  • Anti-static masking
  • Cushioning
  • Mechanical protection

Reclosable Fasteners

3M reclosable fasteners are better than traditional fasteners when it comes to strength and versatility. These fasteners are often preferred for repeated opening, closing, attaching and detaching.

Safety-Walk™

Damage and injuries are preventable with 3M Safety-Walk™ slip-resistant materials. These nonslip materials are used both indoor and outdoor to avoid costly slips and falls or harm to equipment. Safety-Walk™ can be used around oil, grease or water to improve product performance and safety.
