3M Gulf takes part in Big 5
Dubai, November 23, 2011
Leading research and development company, 3M Gulf, launched two of its innovative products, 3M Cubitron II and 3M Scotch-Weld, at the 2011 edition of The Big 5.
The event which is one of the largest in the field of building and construction industry in the Middle East began on November 21 and will go on till tomorrow (November 24).
The industrial and transportation business unit of 3M Gulf is showcased its presence with an 18 sq m exhibit at the Dubai World Trade Centre, a statement from the company said.
3M also exhibited its range of safety and sun control films at the event.
Fadi Medlej, country business leader 3M industrial and transportation, said: “Our key objective of participating at The Big 5 is to present 3M’s innovative solutions that find many applications in the building and construction industry.”
“3M Cubitron II and 3M Scotch-Weld products have set high benchmarks as preferred abrasive and adhesive applications for the construction industry worldwide and 3M Gulf is now introducing these products for its customers across the Middle East region,” he said.
With decades of experience in ceramic, abrasive and micro replication technologies, 3M has literally reinvented abrasives with 3M Cubitron II Products. Starting with a patented, precision-shaped ceramic abrasive grain, 3M engineers found a way to electrostatically orient each triangular structure to maximise cutting potential.
As a result of this, each individual precision-shaped ceramic grain acts like a cutting tool, slicing through metal like a knife, and continuously self-sharpens as points break off. This allows 3M Cubitron II belts and discs to run cooler and keep on working, long after conventional abrasives have dulled, shelled, glazed over and been tossed out.
The 3M Scotch-Weld structured adhesives have been recognised as one of the most powerful adhesive amongst 3M’s incredible range of tapes and adhesives, with the toughened family having the highest overall strength, impact resistance and durability, the statement said.
Among the first 3M engineering adhesives, 3M Structural adhesives have improved from the original rigid line, to flexible, and then toughened formulations that have met changing design and production requirements for industries ranging from aerospace and appliances to sporting goods and electronics.
It is now re-energised offering the highest shear and peel strength combinations for durability in the toughest environments which enhances production, it said.
Besides showcasing its differentiated industrial portfolio, 3M exhibit at the event will also display its safety and sun control films which have proven to be a highly effective energy saver and a strong protection against harmful UV rays.
Recommended by The Global Skin Cancer Foundation, 3M’s building sun control films have provided protection and comfort to occupants in buildings for over 40 years, the statement said.
These superior films block out almost 100 percent of UV rays from sunlight streaming in through windows. The advanced technologies used in these films also reduce the heat and glare inside the buildings thereby increasing the comfort of occupants in the buildings without compromising visibility.
The company’s building solar control films are endorsed by Energy Star and Leed. 3M Ultra and SH series of safety films are often specified by leading consultants for protecting key government and financial institutions of high importance and security, it said.
“This range is a one-of-a-kind set of products which not only enhances the lifestyle quotient of the consumer but also effectively shields the end user from harmful ultra violet and infrared rays”, concluded Medlej. – TradeArabia News Service
