3M's Product Description

3M 8671 is made of an exceptionally tough abrasion and erosion resistant polyurethane formulated especially for its excellent resistance to ultraviolet light. 

There is little or no discolouration after prolonged periods of environmental exposure. 

8671 comes pre-coated with a long-ageing, solvent resistant, pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive and is protected with an easy release liner. 

8671 can be applied by normal "wet" application techniques which allow ready sliding and repositionability, or by dry application techniques where complex curves need to be coated while allowing some repositionability. 

The product is easy to apply and stretches to conform to difficult contours where this is desired. For especially high adhesion the surface to be coated can be primed with 3M Adhesion Promoter 86.

3M Helitape

The tape worked well but I was left with the lasting doubt if it was 3M tape. Previously the 3M logo was present on the backing paper so I wonder if I was supplied a lower cost 3M substitute.

I am still waiting for my product. I also write a few mails but no reaction. I don’t know if it is a good product...

Top quality product and a good price. I use this to protect my expensive carbon bike frames in vulnerable areas. Much cheaper than individual frame patches and much more durable.
