3M Adhesives

3M Structural Acrylic Adhesive

Faster Rate of Strength Build
Designed for productivity, DP8805NS can reach over 1,000 psi of overlap shear strength in less than nine minutes. Its rate of strength build is twice as fast as ordinary acrylic adhesives.
The advantage: higher throughput and increased productivity.

Higher Impact Resistance
DP8405NS has over three times the impact strength of ordinary acrylic adhesives. Higher impact resistance makes it ideal for many industrial applications, helping build stronger products for challenging applications.
The advantage: improved impact resistance helps make your products more durable.

Longer Shelf Life, Easier Storage
3M’s Next Generation Structural Acrylic Adhesives do not require refrigeration, making them easier to store. They also have an 18-month shelf life; more than double that of conventional acrylic adhesives, which can help to reduce scrap and disposal costs due to expired inventory.
The advantage: reduced costs and improved logistics.

  • Excellent adhesion to many materials including plastics
  • Clear bond lines
  • Ideal for automated production

3M Scotch-Weld Pipe Sealants
3M Scotch-Weld Pipe Sealant products are ideally suited to HVAC, plumbing and fire protection industries. These one component engineering adhesives are used in thread and pipe sealing to prevent leakage caused by tape shredding, vibration loosening, solvent evaporation and damaged threads.
Other benefits of our Pipe sealant products include:
  • Can be used in both low and high pressure applications
  • Seals to the burst strength of most piping systems
  • Solvent free
  • Easy disassembly even after long period
3M Scotch-Weld Gasket Makers
3M Scotch-Weld Gasket Adhesives eliminate the need for pre-cut gaskets, therefore reducing inventory and cost. Our adhesives can be used on water, oil and fuel pumps, electric motor covers, compressors, thermostat housing and most machined metal faces. The range of viscosity within the full offering allows for specific requirements of gasket applications.
Other benefits of our Gasket Adhesive products include:

3M Scotch-Weld Retaining Compound
3M Scotch-Weld Retaining Compounds are ideal for bonding parts such as bearings, shafts, hubs and bolts. The result is a high strength bond which prevents fretting and protects against loosening and corrosion. The adhesives can also give additional strength and security to shrink fit joints.
Other benefits of retaining compound products include:
  • Increases the load bearing characteristics of cylindrical joints
  • Reduces assembly stresses
  • Lowers machining costs
  • Range of strengths and viscosities to meet demanding engineering specifications

3M Scotch Weld Adhesive

3M Scotch-Weld Epoxy Adhesive DP100 is a rigid, two-part epoxy adhesive. 1:1 mix ratio, 3-5 minute work life and handling strength in 20 minutes. 3M Scotch-Weld EPX Plus II applicator and mix nozzles are required for dispensing (not included).
  • 5 minute work life
  • Rigid bonds
  • Fast cure
  • General industrial, sporting goods, solar energy, wind energy, composites, electronics, military, transportation and aerospace
  • Bonding, joining, gluing, attaching, assembling, encapsulating, potting and sealing.
Scotch Weld adhesives give enough time to position or slide the two componants together, then set to handling strength in seconds after compression.

Full strength will then build over a period of approximately 20 minutes to several hours depending on the materials and application. This is ideal because curing can continue to take place on finished materials during either storage or awaiting the next process. This frees up production lines, increases time effciency and cost savings.

They can bond a wide variety of substrates such as wood, fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) and many other plastics to themselves, to metal and glass.

For improved productivity the optional 3M Scotch-Weld adhesive pre-heater maintains four 310ml cartridges ready for instant use. High volume production quantities are also available in a choice of larger containers to suit your requirements.
