Diversified technology company 3M has consolidated its portfolio of masking tapes for the general industrial marketplace to offer a simplified range of six core products to meet virtually all masking needs.
This will benefit customers during the specification process as it will be quicker and easier to identify the correct product for each application.
The range is colour-coded according to temperature performance – from room temperature General Purpose Masking Tape, which has a blue core, to 160 Degree Masking Tape, which has a red core. This straightforward system allows the end user to differentiate between multiple types of tape on the shop floor; helping to associate the correct performance level with the job at hand.
Kirsty Horsfall of 3M’s Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division explains: "We appreciate the need to quickly identify the right masking tape for a particular job, as there are currently so many products available. The new range from 3M has been reduced to just six variations that are suitable for a multitude of applications; from bundling and sealing to paint masking or protecting a surface from scratching, with a variety of temperature performances and adhesive qualities. This simplifies the selection process and means that customers can quickly make the right choice."
To celebrate the launch, 3M has introduced its Masking Tape Range Guide for customers and has reduced the prices of its paper masking tapes. All six products are also available in case and pallet quantities with up to 31 per cent discount for bulk purchases. For more details call 0870 60 800 50 or visit www.3M.co.uk/adhesives.
