Meet the new method that raises the standard.
Put down the sprayer and get to work with revolutionary, fast-installing 3M™ Fire and Water Barrier Tape and 3M™ Smoke and Sound Tape. They’re tested and listed with both UL and Intertek to ASTM E2307, E1966 and E814, and they meet the International Building Code. The only products on the market that use patent-pending 3M technology to provide instant fire, water, smoke and sound protection in convenient tape form. Use it on a variety of construction joints and through-penetration applications. No tools needed. No sprayers to clean or repair. No mess and less hassle.
Ideal for sealing perimeter joints (curtain wall joints) and other construction joints as well as some through-penetration applications. When installed properly (using mineral wool or backer rod if needed), this tape acts as a barrier to fire, water, smoke and sound.
Ideal for providing a smoke and sound seal for construction joints and through-penetration applications in non-fire-rated wall and floor assemblies, including smoke partitions and acoustic assemblies. When installed properly, this material is used to provide a smoke seal to mitigate the spread of smoke and toxic gas as well as help reduce the transmission of sound (refer to installation instructions — may require mineral wool or backer rod to achieve STC ratings).
Seals and protects in two simple steps.
Select the type, size and amount of tape appropriate for your application. If needed, apply mineral wool or backer rod.
Lay tape in place. Peel off release liner and adhere tape to surface — some creases, bubbles and wrinkles are okay.
Whether you’re an architect looking for specifications or an installer requiring training, 3M partners with you from the start.
These products meet the IBC for passive fire protection and requirements for LEED v4. They also are tested and listed with both UL and Intertek to ASTM E2307, E1966 and E814. Our experts can help architects and engineers with project plans to ensure all needs and requirements are met.
Our tapes are easy to inspect, with mess-free application and clear markings on the surface of the tape.
Where "get it right" meets "get it done."
Revolutionize your work with patent-pending technology from the industry leader.
Tape is tough and can be stretched 500%. Great for rugged, demanding construction joints — has tested and listed systems with up to +/- 50% movement.
Product has been specifically tested to the rigors of UL and ASTM standards. Designed to meet the International Building Code. Clear markings prove you're using an approved product.
High-tack adhesive is effective in extreme temperatures and on damp surfaces. No need for special primers. Surface should be free of frost and debris.
Tapes are lightweight and portable — no need to haul heavy pallets of spray, caulk, caulk guns, sprayers or cleaning solvents to the jobsite.
Tapes emit no VOCs and meet the requirements of LEED v4. Process doesn’t require solvents/water for cleanup and subsequent disposal, or electricity to power sprayers.
Simple, easy-to-learn installation and instant results with no prep time, no cleaning equipment, no mixing and no cure time.
