Adheco’s comprehensive lineup of bonding and adhesive technologies includes fasteners from industry leader 3M. These strong, versatile and reliable products are available in reclosable and hook and loop varieties to meet the needs of a range of industrial applications.
3M Dual Lock Reclosable Fasteners
When the application calls for a strong, reliable, yet removable, closure or attachment, 3M’s Dual Lock Reclosable Fasteners are an easy (and lightweight) alternative to traditional fastening methods such as screws, nuts or bolts, and they offer the ease of tape application. This invisible fastener works behind the scenes to create a snug fit and smooth lines for an improved appearance in such applications as ceiling attachments on buses and trains, light panels for trade show exhibits, and interior attachments for vehicles. The strong, interlocking mushroom-shaped heads close with a snap to ensure a secure attachment, and they are durable enough for repeated openings and closings — up to 1,000 openings and closings before losing 50 per cent of their original tensile strength. As a result, this reliable solution helps to reduce concerns about material damage and deformation, vibration, fastener placement, contamination and corrosion, and the challenges of joining dissimilar materials. These units are available in a variety of strengths to fit each project’s needs.
3M Hook and Loop Fasteners
Industrial-strength hook and loop fasteners from 3M offer a strong hold, even after frequent openings and closings — up to 5,000. With durable hooks on one side, and pliable loops on the other, they provide secure closure and easy peel-away, making them ideal for a range of applications, including attaching cushioning panels in an ambulance or bus, and hanging posters and banners that change frequently. They can also be used as a replacement for string, tapes, rubber bands, wire and strapping, and are available in a variety of colours and with specialized properties such as flame resistance. These fasteners are available with 3M adhesive backing, giving them the ability to bond on contact to many different surfaces, including low-surface-energy substrates like polyethylene and polypropylene.
