The manufacture of household appliances involves a large number of complex processes.

Appliance

Whether it's about label identification, attachment of touch control panels or vibration reduction, 3M solutions will meet your performance requirements.

Assembly

Dishwasher

3M VHB Adhesive Transfer Tape 9473 is used to bond a felt protective strip to the epoxy painted steel side panel inside a free-standing dishwasher used in residential apartments.

3M Laminating Adhesives with Acrylic Adhesive 200MP are used for assembling "touch control" or membrane switch controls on dishwashers.

Refrigerator

Oven

3M VHB 5952 is used to bond oven door glass to the powder coated stainless steel inner door assembly of a oven.

Attachment

Adhesion of faces decorated

3M™ Adhesive 200MP is a popular choice for graphic attachment and membrane switch applications because it has excellent quality, consistency and durability. In addition, 3M adhesive 200MP also offers excellent performance characteristics like clarity, excellent high temperature performance and resistance to harsh environments (solvents, weak acids and bases and salt water, cleaning solutions, germicides, disinfectants, oils), 467MP & 468MP has superior shear strength and is provided with lay-flat liner for improved dimensional stability.

Refrigerator

3M Dual Lock Reclosable Fasteners are used to attach vinyl protective trim to the top edge of the end panels of refrigerated cass that are used in the deli section of grocery stores. Dual Lock fastener SJ3551 is attached to the back side of the vinyl trim. Dual Lock fastener SJ3440 is attached to the barrier compound that run along the top edge of the stainless stell or fiberglass end panes. The compound is used as a part of the foaming process to create a thermally insulated panel. The two parts are mated together with light finger pressure. This approach allows no-tool removal for any required repairs.

3M Laminating Adhesive 966 is used for icemaker, temperature control, water dispenser graphic attachment to refrigerator components. This laminating adhesive uses 3M Acrylic Adhesive 100.

3M Adhesive Transfer Tape 468MP is used to attach the ABS nameplate on the front of a side-by-side refrigerator freezer.

Freezer

Cookers

3M Laminating Adhesive 467MP is used to attach the polycarbonate control panel to electric ovens.

3M Laminating Adhesive 467MP is used to attach polycarbonate control panels to electric ovens. This laminating adhesive uses 3M High-Performance Adhesive Technology 200MP.

3M Laminating Adhesive 7952MP is used to attach the polycarbonate control panel to self-cleaning ovens. This laminating adhesive uses 3M High-Performance Adhesive Technology 200MP.

Washing Machine

3M Laminating Adhesive 467MP is used to attach polycarbonate control panels to the washing machine. This laminating adhesive uses 3M High-Performance Acrylic Adhesive 200MP.

Identification

High-strength laser engravable label

Laser engravable labels consist of a double layer of acrylate. The top layer is etched with a laser, revealing messages, technical information or drawings.

These labels are extremely resistant to temperature and chemicals, as well as harsh environments.

Noise reduction

Vibration reduction

The application of an anti-vibration tape 2552 in a washing machine significantly reduces vibration and thus prevents the displacement and loss of small parts in the structure of the machine.

Protection

Holding parts and allow their removal without a trace

A specific range of reinforced packaging tapes enable the temporary maintenance of doors, spare parts, and adjustable shelves.

The removal of the tapes can be completed without damaging the substrate. In addition, they leave no trace of the adhesive removal, which is time saving for the user and enhances the image quality of the delivered product.
