3M industrial epoxy adhesives for heavy-duty applications

Epoxy Adhesives

Delivering the highest overall strength and performance.


The highest standard for strength, durability and outdoor weathering

  • Epoxy is often used as a generic term for a structural adhesive, but epoxy adhesives are actually a very specific class of structural adhesives. These chemistries are durable in demanding conditions – not only against outdoor weathering but also many solvents and other conditions.

    Industrial epoxy adhesives provide high shear and peel strengths, depending on the formula, and better heat and chemical resistance than other common adhesives. They generally deliver the highest overall strength, as well as the best performance and most resistance to high temperatures, solvents and outdoor weathering.

  • One-part epoxy adhesives eliminate metering and mixing but require heat to cure, with newer formulations curing at lower temperatures than older versions.

  • Two-part epoxy adhesives begin curing when the two components are mixed and offer different performance characteristics depending on the formulation.
