Productivity

The faster Building Envelope solutions get installed, the better: the project is one step closer to enclosure, which means weatherproofing and interior trades are closer to starting.


  • 3M™ Air Barrier Products are reverse-wound with the adhesive on the outside of the roll – just unroll and go
  • 3M™ Air Barrier, 3M™ VentureClad™ and 3M™ Firestop Products adhere to most substrates without a need for primers or additional adhesive
  • 3M™ VentureClad™ Products can often be installed directly over existing installations
  • 3M products install without special equipment for greater throughput
  • 3M™ Air Barrier Products don’t require seaming – just overlap the material (and to repair, just cut a piece and overlay)
  • 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tapes and 3M™ VHB™ Architectural Panel Tapes provide immediate handling strength with no cure time for faster throughput
Savings and Value

Faster assembly and installation cuts down on overhead while helping you meet incentive deadlines, improving your bottom line. Plus, you can get more jobs completed and do more projects in a year.


  • 3M™ Air Barrier and 3M™ VentureClad™ products can be comfortably carried without the need for special lifting equipment
  • 3M™ Firestop Products such as 3M™ Fire Barrier Rated Foam FIP 1-Step can be installed without the use of any mineral wool
  • 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tapes and 3M™ VHB™ Architectural Panel Tapes install in fewer steps than competitor products, allowing labor savings and faster throughput
  • 3M™ VentureClad™ Products can be applied with a marker, ruler, squeegee and cutting tool – no need for specialized tools or extra manpower
  • Trained installers can quickly and accurately apply 3M Building Envelope products so work sites are ready to move to the next phase
  • Easy application makes it more likely that jobs are done right the first time, with less waste and callbacks
Confidence

The easiest installation in the world isn’t worthwhile unless the product actually performs. At 3M we test our Building Envelope solutions so you can build with confidence. Even though they go on easy, they also perform to the high standard you’ve come to expect from 3M. Based on customer feedback we also create new products that help address installation challenges to better meet your needs.


  • 3M™ Air Barrier Products, 3M™ VentureClad™ Products and 3M™ Fire and Water Barrier Tapes have an acrylic adhesive technology that sticks to most substrates and across a wide range of temperatures
  • 3M™ VentureClad™ products provide a nonpermeable vapor barrier in addition to protecting insulation from physical damage
  • 3M™ VHB™ Structural Glazing Tapes and 3M™ VHB™ Architectural Panel Tapes install without mixing – no 2-part pumps, no time or space devoted to curing and no quality control tests
  • 3M leverages science and has labs dedicated to testing our products in new configurations and conditions
  • Brand new 3M™ Firestop Tapes seal construction joints against fire, water, smoke and sound in a convenient tape format, thus requiring no setup and no dry time
