In this line of specialty tapes, you'll find metal foil tapes, glass cloth tapes, polyester tapes, vinyl tapes and more. These products can help you meet and resolve many challenges simply and effectively.
3M Backing Materials
In many applications, 3M backings add a second surface that affects how the underlying surface relates to the environment. To optimize that relationship, 3M backings offer a wide choice of performance and handling characteristics.
3M Pressure Sensitive Adhesives
Most of these specialty tapes feature a 3M pressure sensitive adhesive that bonds the backing to another surface on contact. Each adhesive has different characteristics that affect production and end-use performance.
