3M has announced the completion of its acquisition of EMFI S.A. and SAPO S.A.S. (“EMFI/SAPO”), manufacturers of polyurethane-based structural adhesives and sealants, headquartered in Haguenau, France. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

EMFI/SAPO’s high-performance adhesives and sealants complement 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division’s core industrial adhesives product line and provide access to the fast-growing polyurethane-based structural adhesives and sealants market segment. The acquisition also will help 3M to better serve customers in France and across Europe.

Based on more than 50 years experience in practical application of adhesive technology, 3M offers industrial tapes and adhesives for bonding, protecting, masking, enhancing, shielding, damping, splicing, reinforcing, color coding, case sealing and more. Complementary acquisitions such as this support both 3M’s core industrial adhesives business and growth strategy to expand into adjacent markets.
