3M Gulf, a recognized leader in research and development has announced its participation at 2011 edition of The Big 5, the largest event for the building and construction industry in the Middle East. The industrial and transportation business unit of 3M Gulf is showcasing its presence with an 18 sqm exhibit in Hall 8 of Dubai World Trade Centre for the duration of the show till November 24, 2011.
3M’s presence at The Big 5 will witness the launch of two innovative products, 3M Cubitron II and 3M Scotch-Weld as part of the company’s adhesives and abrasives range of products respectively. Besides these, 3M will also exhibit its range of Safety and Sun Control Films at the event.
Commenting on 3M Gulf’s participation at The Big 5 2011, Fadi Medlej, Country Business Leader 3M Industrial and Transportation said, “Our key objective of participating at The Big 5 is to present 3M’s innovative solutions that find many applications in the building and construction industry”.
He further added, “3MThe Cubitron II and 3MScotch-Weld products have set high benchmarks as preferred abrasive and adhesive applications for the construction industry worldwide and 3M Gulf is now introducing these products for its customers across the Middle East region”.
With decades of experience in ceramic, abrasive and micro replication technologies, 3M has literally reinvented abrasives with 3M Cubitron II Products. Starting with a patented, precision-shaped ceramic abrasive grain, 3M engineers found a way to electrostatically orient each triangular structure to maximize cutting potential.
As a resultant of this, each individual precision-shaped ceramic grain acts like a cutting tool, slicing through metal like a knife, and continuously self-sharpens as points break off. This allows 3M Cubitron II Belts and Discs to run cooler and keep on working, long after conventional abrasives have dulled, shelled, glazed over and been tossed out.
The 3M Scotch-Weld structured adhesives have been recognized as one of the most powerful adhesive amongst 3M’s incredible range of tapes and adhesives, with the toughened family having the highest overall strength, impact resistance and durability.
Among the first 3M engineering adhesives, 3M Structural adhesives have continually improved. From the original rigid line, to flexible, and then toughened formulations that have met changing design and production requirements for industries ranging from aerospace and appliances to sporting goods and electronics.
Now, the Structural Adhesive line is re-energized with evolution and revolution in the 2-part toughened family which offers the highest shear and peel strength combinations for durability in the toughest environments which enhances production that saves time, labor, and overall cost.
Besides showcasing its differentiated industrial portfolio, 3M exhibit at the event will also display its safety and sun control films which have proven to be a highly effective energy saver and a strong protection against harmful UV rays.
Recommended by The Global Skin Cancer Foundation, 3M’s building sun control films have been providing protection and comfort to occupants in buildings for over 40 years. These superior films block out almost 100 percent of UV rays from sunlight streaming in through windows. The advanced technology used in 3M sun control films also reduce the heat and glare inside the buildings thereby increasing the comfort of occupants in the buildings without compromising visibility. 3M is the inventor of the Sun Control technology.
3M Building solar control films are endorsed by Energy Star and LEED.3M Ultra and SH series of safety films are often specified by leading consultants for protecting key government and financial institutions of high importance and security.
“For over four decades, 3M has been innovating superior building sun control solutions to protect and enhance the quality of lives for citizens in over 65 countries. The range is a one of a kind set of products which not only enhances the lifestyle quotient of the consumer but also effectively shields the end user from harmful ultra violet and infrared rays”, continued Medlej.
