Warehouse and production
3M can provide a range of maintenance products that you can rely on for day-to-day operation of warehouse and production areas. Ensure the maintenance team have the core products that can help address safety
hazards, prevent injuries and help improve the efficiency of your production line.
Traction and UHMW tapes
3M Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) tape has a low coefficient of friction that is abrasion resistant and can be used for lining conveyors and chutes requiring a ‘slip' surface. Conversely 3M Traction Tape 5401's silicone surface creates a highgrip, non-stick surface for wrapping around rollers and other non-slip applications.
3M Vinyl Tape 471 sticks on contact to most surfaces for marking, identifying and colour coding. The tape resists abrasion, scuffing, moisture, weathering and chemicals whilst the bright colours offer permanent visibility for identifying lanes and corridors and other hazards.
3M Foil Tape 425 is an effective solution for sealing duct joints, insulation and flexible duct connections to minimise leaks, maximise efficiency and reduce heating and cooling costs.
3M Safety-Walk™ slip-resistant tape comes in a variety of types to suit most situations where additional grip is required. The high-friction surface helps prevent trip and slip hazards in areas such as stairs, steps and corridors.
3M Scotch-Weld™ cylinder adhesive offers the convenience and freedom of an aerosol with the productivity of a bulk system. The cylinder adhesive offers a neat and controlled spray which can be applied to a variety of substrates for a strong bond with little adhesive wastage.
3M's extensive range of products can provide the solution for general maintenance on the exterior of the facility and its surrounding area. Whether for general repairs to signs, painting or clean up, these products mean that maintenance is easy and effective.
VHB adhesive tapes
Using conventional fabrication techniques such as rivets, screws and spot-welding are not only time and labour intensive but also may not produce an aesthetically pleasing result. 3M VHB (Very High Bond) is fast and easy to apply and offers an alternative bonding solution with a professional result. VHB tape is perfect for many permanent applications such as sign mounting.
hIPA Clean 300
hIPA Clean 300 is an IPA spray that cleans surfaces prior to the application of a 3M tape or adhesive. Packaged in an aerosol, the product is easy to apply and quickly and effectively cleans grease, oil and dirt from many types of substrates. Being IPA based, the product is user friendly and dries quickly leaving no residue.
Abrasives and paint masking
Combine 3M abrasives and masking tapes to make maintenance of the outdoor area as easy and effective as possible. 3M Scotch-Brite™ hand pads are ideal for surface preparation such as paint and rust removal. Before painting, protect the area with 3M 2308 high performance masking tape which, when applied correctly, produces clean lines without paint bleed and can be removed easily upon completion of the job.
The range of 3M Scotch-Weld™ hot melt adhesives are ideal for bonding almost any surface. Once applied with the Polygun™ applicator they cool, harden and reach bond strengths in seconds. They are a fast and effective solution that also increase workplace safety by being solvent-free.
