These adhesives enhanced upon key areas of importance for surface protection. The 3M 800 series tapes have a very smooth peel. They are UV resistant and will remove cleanly after 3 days of direct sunlight. They resist cold, heat, and humidity with up to 38% less haze and up to 7% more clarity with less yellowing. These temporary protection tapes are smooth and quieter on removal, up to 23% quieter with less than 85 dbl. They are also repositionable with a better wet-out and less bubbling and tunneling. This allows you to stick the adhesive to a surface, remove it and place it on the surface again without any significant loss of performance.
