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.
