When your project requires reliable long-term bonding of dissimilar substrates, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives can significantly improve throughput and productivity.
These two-part acrylic adhesives provide excellent bond strength and durability. They are easy to use in many applications and manufacturing processes because of their fast cure speed and high tolerance for oily or unprepared bonding surfaces. Acrylic-based adhesives can bond a wide variety of materials, including nearly all plastics.
Use 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives to replace metal fasteners for both static and dynamic loads and enable improved aesthetics. Newer acrylic adhesive formulations are non-flammable with a long shelf life, and some have lower odour than regular acrylic adhesives.
Acrylics are nearly as strong as epoxies, with a chemistry that can be modified to provide both high peel and shear strength.
Acrylics have faster cure time and higher tolerance for unprepared surfaces than epoxies or urethanes.
Acrylics leave smooth bond lines and invisible joints.
Acrylics adhere to a wide variety of substrates, including many plastics.
Excellent bonding for powder-coat operations. 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Metal Bonder Acrylic Adhesive DP8407NS tackles pre- and post-powder-coat processes, with high-strength solutions that offer:
The solution for lower odor Adhesives
The solution for low surface energy (LSE) Plastics
