Electrical tape 70th birthday cake

While it could be argued that one of the first ‘gifts’ that 3M gave to electricians around the world was the invention of vinyl electrical tape itself, this invention is the kind that just keeps on giving.

As part of the yearlong celebration, 3M Canada is launching a contest from August 1st to November 30th, 2016.  Buy a roll of specially marked Scotch® Vinyl Electrical Tape, find the PIN and enter for a chance to win.
