Thermally Conductive Double Coated (sided) Tape
3M tape series 8926 is designed with a soft acrylic polymer and multiple thickness options to allow excellent wet-out or conformability to many surfaces.
Available Styles: 8926
Thermally Conductive Pads
3M thermal transfer pads are soft and conformable to provide maximum wet out for effective heat transfer and vibration damping for your most demanding thermal applications such as LED and consumer electronic device assembly.
3M acrylic thermal gap pads have a unique surface tack that enables pre-positioning in multi-layer lamination applications. Available in silicone and acrylic formulations, both thermal gap fillers provide excellent handling capabilities and can be die cut to fit most applications.

Acrylic Styles: 5589H, 5590H
Electrically Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tape (ECATT)
3M™ Electrically Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tapes eliminate the need for secondary grounding solutions like screws and fasteners. EMI shielding tape offers design flexibility, improved antenna performance, reduced cross talk and enhanced ESD protection.
3M products offer more reliable electrical connections and outshine other EMI shielding materials in lowered contact resistance, better Signal to Noise ratio and decreased high frequency data error rates.
Available Styles: 7772, 7805, 7850, 9703, 9704, 9705, 9713, 9719, 9720, 9723, 9725, 9732, 9760, 9764, 9780
Anisotropic Electrically Conductive Bond Films (ACF)
3M™ Anisotropic Conductive Film can be used to replace soldering and mechanical fasteners in applications such as flex circuit to PCB, flex circuit to flex circuit and flex circuit to glass panels to reduce assembly time and enable thin device designs.
3M™ Anisotropic Conductive Film is a heat bondable anisotropic conductive tape that is used to mechanically and electrically connect flex circuits in the vertical direction while providing complete insulation horizontally. Product reliability, long shelf life, global technical support and US manufacturing make 3M the preferred anisotropic conductive adhesive.
Available Styles: 5363, 7303, 7371, 7376, 7379
3M™ EMI Absorbers are designed to absorb electromagnetic/radio frequency interference in the broadband range which improves antenna performance, data flex performance, high speed communication and increases signal integrity (s/n ratio).
3M rf and microwave absorbers are thin, flexible EMI suppression sheets backed with adhesive that come in different constructions designed for a broad variety of electronic devices and assemblies. Reduce EMI noise levels within a device by applying 3M EMI absorbers to noisy traces, ICs and reflective surfaces in an enclosure.
Available Styles: AB5000HF Series, AB6000HF Series, AB7000HF Series
Kapton Solder Masks
3M has a full line of high temperature tapes to protect your critical electronic components during the solder reflow process while leaving virtually no adhesive residue after removal.
3M high temp tapes can withstand temperature ranges from -100 deg F (38 deg C) up to 500 deg F (260 deg C) during the solder masking process. These high temperature tapes also offer a variety of performance features including anti-static, non silicone and electrically insulating capabilities.
DuPont™ Kapton® polyimide film and silicone adhesive is used for PCB solder masking and other high temperature applications.
