Adhesives are a key technology used in many of 3M’s industrial division solutions. The company manufactures a diverse range of specialty adhesives, double-sided bonding, adhesive transfer tapes, and reclosable fasteners. These products are sold across many industries and market centers such as aerospace, architecture and construction, converters, electronics, and transportation.
