Large Surface Lamination

Surface-to-surface strength resists shear and peel stresses for durability.

Ask a 3M Expert

Allows for positioning parts, bond curves, and large areas efficiently

Overcome the design and strength constraints posed by mechanical fasteners. Nuts and bolts concentrate the stress to a single point, leading to joint fatigue and accelerating the effects of peel and shear stresses. Industrial adhesives and tapes increase surface-to-surface contact for a stronger bond and disperse the stress over the entire area. Applied between surfaces, its invisible joints create a smooth finish to elevate your product designs.

Designed to make assembly fast, convenient, and efficient, find out how 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes can improve your lamination technique.
