Hot Melt Adhesives


Versatile and Virtually Invisible

  • The quick-stick nature of 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives helps you speed up operations like packaging and production. And they stick to almost anything—foams, corrugated cardboard, fabrics, plastics, particle board and light-gauge metals. While hot melts are as strong as mechanical fasteners and sealing tapes, they're virtually invisible –improving overall aesthetic.

    Whether its detail work or high volume manual production, 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive Systems give your application a fast, convenient, long-lasting bond. Made for use in 3M handheld applicators, our 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives often exceed 100 psi shear strength, giving you a robust hold you can count on.

Product Categories

  • Hot Melt Adhesive Sticks & Bulk Products

    3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives are 100% solids thermoplastic resins that liquefy when heated. When applied to a surface, they cool, harden and reach their bond strength within seconds. Due to their quick work-life, you can move assemblies immediately upon application, eliminating the need for clamps, fixturing or additional drying time and energy.

  • Hot Melt Applicators

    3M™ Hot Melt Applicators are designed to provide customizable options for your bonding needs. From detailed work to high capacity production, our applicators are easy to use, and help you improve productivity, lower cost and minimize waste.

  • Sprayable Hot Melt Adhesives

    3M™ Hot Melt Sprayable Adhesives are fast, effective and especially good for bonding in bulk. You simply spray a controlled pattern of 100% solids adhesive right where you want it. Apply to one or both surfaces and bond substrates immediately. Applications range from furniture cushions to foam inserts, modular office panels to gym floor pads, and more.
