Lamatek Debuts 3M Extreme Sealing Tape

Fri Jun 9, 2017

WEST DEPTFORD, New Jersey - LAMATEK, Inc. now offers 3M Extreme Sealing Tape, a highly conformable, single-sided acrylic tape designed for difficult sealing applications. True to its name, 3M Extreme Sealing Tape holds securely through sun, rain, snow, temperature extremes and humidity for an instant seal that rolls on fast and looks good. New Extreme Sealing Tape sticks on contact to metals, plastics and other substrates without the drying time, dripping, oozing or clean-up associated with liquid sealants.

Proven 3M acrylic adhesive conforms over contours, edges, rivets and screws for a water tight seal while the tough but flexible ionomer backing resists abrasions and harsh conditions. New Extreme Sealing Tape also saves time and money while reducing your carbon footprint. The convenient peel-and-stick application eliminates the need for additional tools, like caulking guns, which require storage and cleaning and create unnecessary waste in the form of empty cartridges.

LAMATEK’s newest product option is ideal for applications like sealing joints and seams on rain gutters and downspouts, metal and storage buildings, mobile and office trailers, RV and trailer roofs, skylights, metal enclosures and vent stacks. 3M Extreme Sealing Tape is also great for leak patching and repairs, window and door sealing, commercial vehicles and sealing around mechanical fasteners. Extreme Sealing Tape sticks to itself and maintains a strong seal on overlapping tape joints.

Highly conformable 3M Extreme Sealing Tape is available in three color options but also has a paintable surface for an added aesthetic benefit. 4412 and 4411 series tapes are available in 80 millimeter thickness or 40 millimeters for a lower sight profile. As a 3M Select Converter, LAMATEK can provide custom slit rolls of tape, die-cut Extreme Sealing gaskets and custom fabricated parts.
