3M's Got You Covered with New Products to Protect Your Ears, Head, & Electronic Components

3M™ recently made announcements for three new products: The 3M H-800 Series Full Brim Hard Hat, the 3M Peltor™ Earmuffs X Series, and the 3M Static-Dissipative Heat-Activated Adhesive Cover Tape 2679. All three with a common purpose…to offer a protective covering.

3M H-800 Series Full Brim Hard Hat

The 3M H-800 Series Full Brim Hard Hat provides head protection that is easy to wear with a nod toward alleviating workers' frustrations with hard hats. The H-800 Series Hard Hats feature a lightweight shell, new advancements in suspension design, and 3M's patented UV indicator.

Available in eleven colors and three different styles (hi-viz, non-vented, and with the optional venting), the H-800 Hard Hat aims to meet workers' demands for comfort by offering three levels of adjustment; a smooth, easy-turning ratchet suspension; four- and six-point suspension combinations (enabling the hard hat to sit lower on head and reduce pressure points); and an absorbent brow pad. These high-impact resistant, full brim hard hats address safety concerns by using 3M Scotchlite™ Reflective Material for enhanced visibility and an optional UVicator™ Sensor that indicates when the hard hat should be replaced because of UV exposure.

The adjustable, easy-to-use H-800 Series Full Brim Hard Hat meets the following standards:
  • Hi-Viz H-800 Hard Hat colors meet ANSI Z89.1-2009 High-Visibility Performance requirements
  • Non-vented H-800 Hard Hats meet ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2009 Type I Class C, G, and E requirements
  • Vented H-800 Hard Hats meet ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2009 Type I, Class C requirements

3M Peltor Earmuffs X Series

3M's new Peltor X Series Earmuffs were created to protect the hearing of those working in high-noise environments. Featuring Noise Reduction Ratings (NRR) of 21 dB to 31 dB, which is the highest NRR earmuff available on the market, the Peltor X Series was created to set new standards in hearing conservation and comfort.

The 3M Peltor Earmuffs utilize a combination of cutting-edge technologies including innovative designs for spacers, earcup liners, and cushion foam. These lightweight earmuffs also feature a dielectric wire headband (and twin headband design), a low-profile design, color coding, and soft, wide, easy-to-replace cushions. The 3M Peltor X Series Earmuffs are available in over-the-head and hard hat-attached models.

3M Static-Dissipative Heat-Activated Adhesive Cover Tape

3M's Static-Dissipative Heat-Activated Adhesive Cover Tape (Model 2679) provides protection for packaging electronic components in tape and reel. The 2679 Cover Tape was designed to seal such components into 3M polycarbonate carrier tapes for storage or transport.

The 3M 2679 Heat-Activated Cover Tape uses a heat application to seal with the carrier tape. The tape offers smoother peels (to reduce the risk of component migration and pick-and-place errors) and improved transparency for visual inspection (which also prevents picking mistakes), while protecting components from damage.

The 3M Model 2679 Static Dissipative Heat Activated Adhesive Cover Tape is RoHS compliant and available in 480-meter roll format with widths ranging from 5.2 mm to 49.4 mm.
