About paper manufacturing

  • In dozens of ways throughout a paper mill, 3M tapes, wear components, and filtration products contribute to the high-speed productivity that modern papermaking requires. We help your people quickly and efficiently execute tasks such as starting cores and splicing webs. And 3M wear components and filtration systems help your machinery withstand abrasive materials leading to improved uptime and less maintenance.

Paper manufacturing applications

  • Flying splices on the off-machine coater

    Keep your off-machine coaters running and productive with reliable 3M™ Flying Splice Tapes.

  • Flying splices on the supercalender

    Achieve efficient and consistent splices for a wide range of paper grades.

  • Butt splices

    For making temporary or permanent splices on a wide range of paper grades, or for going through nips that won’t pass thick stacks of paper.

  • Overlap splices

    Reliable splices with high strength adhesive.

  • Input roll splices on sheeters

    Input roll splices must stick to all varieties and grades of paper.

  • Splicing corrugates

    Make high performance splices that hold securely on many grades of brown paper and paperboard.

  • Core starting

    Use 3M high-tack, repulpable tapes to hold paper securely to the core.

  • Roll closing

    Strips of high strength, repulpable tape on the trailing edge of the paper keep rolls closed during shipping and storage.

  • Hole patching at the re-reeler

    3M printable repulpable tapes can be used for reliable patching that holds through coaters and supercalenders.

  • Wear resistance

    3M silicon nitride materials and components help production equipment perform in extreme environments.

  • Water filtration for equipment protection

    Filtration helps prevent water contaminates from clogging spray nozzles and causing production downtime.
