Think Pink with 3M

Breast cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer diagnosed in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point in their lives.

The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s discovered and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of finding breast cancer early. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.

How can National Breast Cancer Awareness Month make a difference?  We can use this opportunity to spread the word about taking steps to detect breast cancer early.

If it can’t be fixed with Duct Tape, then you’re not using enough Duct Tape.

There is nothing in the world that cannot be fixed with Duct Tape.

I once owned a red compact car. Driving to work one day a pheasant decided to take on my front bumper. His sacrifice to his fellow car hating, feathered friends was not in vein. He charged my bumper and with a blast of feathers, the bumper was in pieces. Not having a lot of spare time (or money) at the time, the perfect solution was duct tape! Even better, RED duct tape! Problem solved.

3M™ Heavy Duty Duct Tape 3939 has the tensile strength and adhesion for splicing, masking, patching, seaming, hanging poly sheeting, sealing PVC pipes, covering trip hazards and a host of other industrial applications.

  • Industrial-grade duct tape for splicing, masking, patching, sealing and seaming
  • High tensile strength for a secure hold under stress
  • Thick rubber adhesive bonds to most rough and smooth surfaces for a tight seal
  • Silver polyethylene surface resists wear, abrasion and water


So no matter what your need, whether taping a bumper together or your younger brother to a tree, 3M Heavy Duty Duct Tape 3939 is the product for you!


Who knew yard work could be so electrifying!

Summertime! Swimming, barbeques and yard work.
There is nothing better than being one with nature and getting your hands in the soil. Taking your little hand spade and piercing the earth to give back by planting flowers. As the spade cuts the ground you can smell the fresh dirt and then you feel it! The sharp tingling sensation going up your arm as you see a bright flash and smoke come out of the hole.
You open your eyes and your looking straight up at the clouds. You crawl over to the hole and realize you dug through the power line going to the front post light.
What now? You can’t just tape it up, what to do?
You can use the 3M UF underground splice kit!

3mtm-uf-splice-kitThe UF Splice Kit consists of a connector-insulation assembly and a heat shrink tube. The connector assembly contains four cylindrical set screw connectors separated by a piece of vinyl insulation. The heat shrink tube is a heavy-wall, adhesive-lined tube. Underground Feeder (UF)-B cables are flat, and typically have three solid conductors without ground or two solid conductors with a ground. They range in size from 8 AWG to 14 AWG. The most common UF cable size is 10-14 AWG. The 3M UF Splice Kit is offered in two versions: UF1 Standard Kit includes a 1.8″ length terminal connector and an 8″ length of heavy-wall, adhesive-lined heat shrink tube. UF2 Stretcher Kit has an 11.7” terminal connector and a 20” length of heavy-wall, adhesive-lined heat shrink tube. The Standard Kit is used in most applications. The Stretcher Kit is used in situations where a 7-10 inch section of the cable has been damaged or destroyed. It eliminates two connectors and a short piece of cable during repair.
