When your project requires reliable long-term bonding of dissimilar substrates, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives significantly improve throughput and productivity. These adhesives can withstand extreme temperatures, build strength rapidly and resist impact and peel.
Created for designers, engineers and manufacturers who need efficient bonding and greater design flexibility, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives are suitable for bonding most plastics, aluminum, steel and oily metal surfaces. Fast and easy to apply, our acrylic adhesives provide bonds that replace metal fasteners for both static and dynamic loads and enable improved aesthetics.
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives also offer low-odor and non-flammable formulations to help where odors can be annoying or where flammability is a concern.
This white paper discusses wet-out and why LSE surfaces are difficult to bond. It then lists some traditional surface treatment options which can add cost, complexity or safety issues to a process before discussing two 3M acrylic structural adhesives specifically formulated to bond LSE plastics. The paper closes with a discussion of some pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes and adhesion promoters that can also be used to bond LSE surfaces.
This white paper discusses some major aspects of acrylic structural adhesives, including comparing acrylic structural adhesives to two-part epoxy structural adhesives, characteristics of the three major types of acrylic adhesives (MMA, Low-odor and LSE) and some characteristics of newer acrylic adhesives that make them more user-friendly in production environments.
This brochure reviews some of the latest 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives and how they can enhance productivity and performance. Some of the particular advances of new formulas include faster rate of strength build, higher impact resistance, longer shelf life, easier storage and lower odors. A metal-bonding adhesive designed to withstand powder coat and paint bake processes is also described.
3M acrylic structural adhesives are easy to apply and cure quickly. Explore our range of options for bonding a wide variety of substrates, including most plastics, aluminum, steel and oily metal surfaces. Many products also have low-odor and non-flammable formulations.
