||3M STRUCTURAL ADHESIVES - SCOTCH WELD
||As an alternative to mechanical or fusion
fastening, the reasons for Scotch-Weld
Adhesives are many: greater design latitude,
cleaner lines, material substitution, less
machining, lighter weight, more durability,
and often less cost.
To meet application and end-use
requirements you can select from one-part
heat-curing epoxies, and two-part roomtemperature
curing epoxies, acrylics and
urethanes. There are formulations for
bonding steel, aluminum, copper, low
surface energy plastics, rubber, glass,
wood, masonry and more.
Whatever properties you need–durable
adhesion, flexibility, creep resistance,
heat and environmental resistance,
void-filling—you'll likely find a
Scotch-Weld product to meet your
requirements and expectations.
3M has long been recognized as a pioneer in structural strength adhesives. But to meet end use
performance requirements doesn't just mean providing the right chemical formula. Which is why
3M also develops dispensing systems to facilitate production in low and high volume assembly.
Many two-part 3M formulations are available in Duo-Pak cartridges for dispensing with a manual
or pneumatic 3M™EPX™ Applicator.
