Appliances Assembly and Repair Solutions

Appliances are now stronger, lighter, and quieter.


New designs made possible with a strong bond you can rely on

Expand the boundaries by bonding dissimilar materials seamlessly with industrial tapes and adhesives. It is versatile for any assembly type as it addresses the stress characteristics needed in the joints. Applied along the joints, it absorbs vibrational sounds of the appliance for a pleasant experience. With the convenience of a tape solution or a structural adhesive, it eliminates the tedious steps of finishing and polishing the surface.

Explore the range of 3M bonding and assembly solutions that meet even the most stringent performance requirements.
