Scotch Tape®, which is arguably the most well known 3M product, was invented in the nineteen twenties. It used the then-new transparent material cellophane to make a versatile adhesive used in the home and office. Originally, it was produced for sealing products protected by cellophane and the adhesive was only applied to the outer edges. As the tape grew in popularity and was used for other applications, the adhesive was spread to cover the whole strip of on side.

Masking Tape®, the predecessor of Scotch Tape®, was invented at Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company by the same 3M employee. In the nineteen twenties, two-toned cars became very popular. In order to make them, one portion of the car had to be covered while the other was painted. At that time, no product existed that could protect the initial paint job while keeping the cover secure. Dick Drew, a 3M employee, invented Masking Tape® to alleviate this common automotive issue.

Recent innovations from 3M include Post-it® Super Sticky Notes and Scotch® transparent duct tape, both of which are as wildly popular as the products 3M has been putting on the market for years. From a company like this, the industrial and commercial markets, as well as individuals in the consumer product context have a manufacturer and provider to depend on.
