3M intros heavy duty Post-it Extreme Notes
3M is looking to make communicating, no matter what the weather, easier for all who use its Post-it Brand products. The St. Paul, Minn.-based company has launched its latest product, the Post-it Extreme Notes. Created with ultra-strong dura-hold paper and adhesive, the product is designed to stick on tough, textured and curved surfaces while withstanding tough weather conditions.
“Dependable communication is key for productive, accurate work and timely results, yet our research uncovered that 82% of workers outside the office experience challenges with non-verbal communication,” Remi Kent, global business director, Post-it Brand said. “After years of leading the market in office communication, Post-it Extreme Notes were developed specifically for this need outside of traditional offices. This new tool can get messages across, even in the toughest conditions.”
The extreme notes also can stick on surfaces found on job sites in construction, food service, manufacturing and in-home surfaces such as freezers, boiler rooms, garages and bathrooms, the company said. Due to the dura-hold paper and adhesive, the paper securely sticks on the intended surfaces and is able to withstand temperatures that range from 0 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
3M’s Post-it Extreme Notes will be available for purchase in retailers such as Target, Walmart and wherever else the brand’s products are currently sold. The notes will come in three and 12-packs of 3×3-in.-sized paper. Further product information, including pricing, can be found on Post-it’s website.
