Impact Protection Adhesive from 3M of St. Paul, Minnesota, is applied around the window frame and bonds the glass, window film, and frame together, improving protection against severe weather damage, bomb blasts, and intruders. Designed for use with 3M Ultra Safety & Security window films, the adhesive is part of a comprehensive window protection system. The first level, 3M Ultra Safety and Security Window Film, helps hold shards of glass together when glass is broken. The next level, adding the adhesive, creates a stronger barrier to keep out water and debris, as well as smash and grab attempts of intruders. The highest level is achieved by adding 3M Impact Protection Profile, a flexible gasket-style attachment that bonds the filmed window and frame and incorporates 3M VHB tape, providing a clean appearance and a strong barrier.
