Permanently bond panels to rigid frames, or add rigid stiffeners to support large panels.
Panel assemblies are significant in today’s construction, transport, and general industries. Holding strength, water-tight sealing, and thermal flexibility are critical for product designs and load-bearing panels. 3M panel bonding solutions help you meet these design and strength requirements while enhancing final product aesthetics.
Panel-to-frame assemblies occur when decorative or load-bearing panels are applied to a rigid frame for support.
Stiffeners are applied to panels to give extra support and rigidity. The video above demonstrates the necessary steps:
3M tapes, adhesives, sealers and fasteners offer a range of options for panel-to-frame and stiffener-to-panel applications. These choices maintain elasticity for dynamic loads, and allow expansion differences when temperatures change.
