Winter Warrior

You don't stop working when it freezes – neither should your building materials.


Winter Weather Shouldn't Stop You Cold

Time is money, and you can't stop a project just because it freezes. The acrylic adhesive on our air barrier and flashing tapes is specially formulated to stick at temperatures down to 0°F (-17°C) so you can keep applying it when the mercury drops. Build smarter with 3M.
