Innovative Adhesive Tape holds Frank Gehry’s projects together!

What helps creative architects like Frank Gehry turn heavy metal into such light, free-flowing forms?
A VHB adhesive tape from 3M™ that makes innovative architecture possible!

Frank Gehry’s design for the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles beautifully deconstructs basic forms: walls curve, towers rise above foundations that seem too small, and shining steel scales reflect and transform the surrounding space. Such an out-of-the-box vision required special materials and techniques to construct. The outside walls are covered in 6,100 stainless steel panels, no two the same shape or size. Permasteelisa, the construction team, needed a way to invisibly fasten each 145 lb. piece of steel. No rivets. No welds. Read more here …

Flashing tape 8067 stays stuck even in extreme temperatures!

No primers, no staples, no bleeding. No nonsense!

3M™ All Weather Flashing Tape 8067 is engineered to increase productivity while solving the most critical flashing problems. Unique acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive sticks and stays stuck to seal around windows, doors and other openings as well as for sealing joints in rigid air barriers. To prevent moisture intrusion, the thin backing construction effectively conforms and seals around nails and staples with less buildup under siding. Propriety design will not liquefy, bleed or melt in contact with most building sealants or in extreme temperatures.
