3M VHB™ Tapes

These acrylic foam tapes are comprised of closed cell foams with pressure-sensitive adhesive on both sides. This unique combo offers benefits that mechanical fasteners like screws, rivets and welds often can’t match.

3M VHB™ Tapes allow instant bonding, shock absorption, stress distribution, waterproofing, conformability, and expansion and contraction.

  • VHB RP Family
  • VHB 5952 Family
  • VHB 4941 Family

3M Single-Coated Foam Tapes

3M Single-Coated Foam Tapes can adhere to numerous substrates. The urethane series help cushion, seal, dampen sound and absorb vibration. The vinyl series products are durable, weather-resistant and remain flexible during exposure to temperature and light.

  • 4100 Series Urethane Foam Tape
  • 4300 Series Urethane Foam Tape
  • 4500 Series Vinyl Foam Tape
  • 4700 Series Vinyl Foam Tape

3M EMI and EMC Applications

EMI and EMC products protect from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and increase electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). These foils, tapes and gaskets are ideal for shielding and absorbing, static charge grounding, anti-static masking, cushioning, and mechanical protection.

  • Electrically Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tapes
  • Electrically Conductive Cushioning Gaskets
  • EMI Absorbers
  • Foil and Fabric Tapes

3M Reclosable Fasteners

3M reclosable fasteners beat out traditional fasteners with strength and versatility every time. Instead of rivets, screws, bolts, nails or welds, using reclosable fasteners are often preferred for repeated opening, closing, attaching and detaching.

  • 3M™ Hook and Loop Fasteners
  • 3M™ Dual Lock Reclosable Fasteners

3M Safety-Walk™

Damage and injuries are more preventable than you may think. 3M Safety-Walk™ slip-resistant materials help with this. These nonslip materials are used indoors and outdoors to avoid costly slips and falls or harm to equipment.

Use around oil, grease or water to improve product performance and safety.

3M Safety-Walk tapes and treads are the easy, economical way to help prevent injury and meet OSHA and ADA requirements.

  • 3M Safety-Walk Fine Resilient – 200 Series
  • 3M Safety-Walk Medium Resilient – 300 Series
  • 3M Safety-Walk Conformable – 500 Series

3M Bumpon™ Protective Products decrease noise and prevent scratching by cushioning with resilient elastomers. A high coefficient of friction resists skidding on most surfaces.

  • 5200 Series
  • 5600 Series
  • 5800 Series
  • 5900 Series
  • 6000 Series
  • 6200 Series
