September 29, 2023

Zatkoff Seals & Packings is a 3M Select Converter, and we are proud to stock their adhesive materials to offer to our customers. The product categories we offer include double-sided tapes, single-coated tapes, reclosable fasteners, and specialty products such as 3M® Premium Polyurethane Foam Tapes. These products come in a variety of pressure-sensitive adhesive constructions, each with unique properties for different applications.

Double-Sided Tapes

Double-sided tape products allow two parts to be bonded together. 3M provides these tapes with various adhesive characteristics to meet the requirements of the specific job at hand. The key benefits of these products are faster assembly time, enhanced design flexibility, immediate handling strength, LSE and dissimilar materials bonding, clean aesthetics and reduced product bulk, and moisture intrusion prevention. The best product for you will be determined by multiple factors including what materials you are bonding, how the product will be processed, and how you need the adhesive to perform.

Single-Coated Tapes

Just like 3M® double-sided Tapes, 3M® single-coated tapes come in several configurations to ensure the product works for your application. Multiple factors come into play when determining the optimum product including backing material, adhesive type, application time and temperature, surface characteristics, and end-use conditions. For example, 3M® backings come in a wide range of performance and handling characteristics such as thickness, temperature range, conformability, cost, moisture barrier ability, chemical resistance, solvent resistance, and resistance to recovery. Likewise, the various 3M® pressure-sensitive adhesives have specific characteristics that affect production and end-use performance. These include initial tack, ultimate adhesion to steel, temperature range, long-aging capabilities, and cost.
