COMPANY OVERVIEW

3M provides the construction industry with a comprehensive line of tapes and adhesives. 3M VHB tapes are strong enough to replace rivets and screws while remaining virtually invisible. Our masking tapes offer protection for a wide range of surfaces, from stucco to paper to metal. We also offer specialty tapes, including indoor/outdoor carpet seaming tape and extreme sealing tape that withstands harsh environmental conditions, making it ideal for rain gutters, vent stacks and more.

3015 Technical Guide

For installation ease and flexibility, 3M™ Air and Vapor Barrier 3015 with high performance 3M™ Acrylic Adhesive grabs on contact to exterior sheathing, concrete, masonry, wood, and other construction substrates. It can be applied without time-consuming priming, torching, or asphalt mess.

3015 MSDS

This Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is provided as a courtesy in response to a customer request. This product is not regulated under, and a SDS is not required for this product by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) because, when used as recommended or under ordinary conditions, it should not present a health and safety hazard. However, use or processing of the product not in accordance with the product's recommendations or not under ordinary conditions may affect the performance of the product and may present potential health and safety hazards.

3015 Technical Data Sheet

3M™ Air and Vapor Barrier 3015 is an air, moisture and water impermeable membrane with an aggressive, high-tack acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive that does not require the use of a primer on most construction surfaces. It even adheres to damp surfaces. This product has a unique acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive that aggressively sticks and stays stuck both at lower and higher application temperatures than traditional air barrier products.

3015 Self-Adhered Statements of Material Compatibility

3M™ Self-Adhered Air and Vapor Barrier Membrane 3015 features an aggressive, nonstaining, high tack acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive that does not require the use of a primer on most construction surfaces.

The membrane is compatible with many building sealants: There is no adverse reaction with synthetic rubber, butyl, polyurethane, silicone and silane terminated hybrid sealants.

3M Self-Adhered Air and Vapor Barrier Membrane 3015 has excellent adhesion to concrete, concrete block, anodized aluminum, galvanized metal, plywood, extruded polystyrene and most exterior gypsum sheathing without the use of primer.

3015 Compatibility with Roofing Membranes

3M™ Air and Vapor Barrier 3015 has been tested for compatibility to determine if there would be any adverse effects and/or reactions to the membrane products listed. Samples of 3M air and vapor barrier 3015 were adhered to the subject roofing membranes, allowed to dwell for at least 24 hours, and then heat aged at conditions varying from 30 days @ 49°C (120°F), to one week @ 80°C (176°F). ASTM D3330 Peel Adhesion (90° peel) was then performed to compare original to aged properties and determine if the adhesive bond of membrane was stable or adversely affected.

3015 WUFI Analysis of Wall Section

3M™ Self-Adhered Air and Vapor Barrier Membrane 3015 has a water vapor transmission rate of 0.14 perms (8 ng/Pasm2), as measured by ASTM E96, desiccant method. Some building professionals have expressed concerned that this value could mean that 3M 3015 could not be used as a barrier product on par with other selfadhered membranes with water vapor transmission rates around 0.05 perms. A WUFI® analysis was performed to determine if there was any difference in wall performance between materials of 0.14 and 0.05 perms.

3015 Adhesion to Through Wall Flashing

To determine the adhesive bond characteristics and compatibility of 3M™ Air and Vapor Barrier 3015 to various Through Wall Flashing membranes.

3015 NFPA 285 Wall Assemblies

3M has performed NFPA® 285 fire tests on a number of exterior wall system assemblies that incorporate 3M™ Air and Vapor Barrier 3015 as the weather resistive barrier (WRB) applied to the base wall.

3015 Mock Wall Performance

3M™ Air and Vapor Barrier 3015 has a unique multilayer elastomeric film backing that provides many advantages like translucency that allows installers to see stud lines for installation of masonry ties, furring or framing, and verification of substrate preparation for inspectors or consultants. The film is also receptive to sealing with difficult bonding materials like silicone sealants

3015VP Installation Guide

3M™ Air Barrier 3015VP with high performance 3M™ Acrylic Adhesive adheres on contact to most exterior building surfaces without the use of adhesive primer. It can be applied in temperatures between 0°F and 150°F (-18°C and 66°C) ensuring that construction projects are not delayed due to severe temperatures. 3M Air Barrier 3015VP is highly UV resistant and does not need to be covered until after six months. It can be installed vertically or horizontally.
