3M Industrial Adhesives & Tapes will be introducing two new solutions to the sign market at the ISA International Sign Expo, April 4-6 in Las Vegas, Nev. At the 3M booth, number 4113, sign manufacturers will find adhesive and tape solutions that offer proven performance in replacing mechanical fasteners in sign assemblies.
3M Scotch-Weld Low Odor Acrylic Adhesives DP8805NS and DP8810NS are next- generation Structural Acrylic Adhesives that provide dramatic improvements over conventional high odor Acrylics. In addition to providing faster curing and higher performance than conventional acrylic adhesives, these low odor acrylic adhesives can reduce worker irritation and ease EHS concerns. Suitable for use on structural framework of signs, the adhesives improve aesthetics and also reduce the potential for water intrusion and corrosion that comes with using mechanical fasteners. The adhesives officially launch on June 25, but visitors to the booth will be able to view demo videos and talk with 3M representatives about how the products can fit their sign manufacturing applications.
3M VHB Tape 5952 will also be highlighted during the show for its indoor and outdoor applications in light box assembly, panel to frame bonding, mounting letters and decorative trim, and bracket attachment.

Additionally, the immediate bond provided by the tape provides outstanding convenience in the manufacturing process. The tape is available in both white and black, giving users flexible aesthetic options.
