Our full range of adhesives, compounds and fillers can help you achieve the ultimate balance of weight, strength and aesthetic appeal in aircraft cabin design.
This is the art of the aircraft cabin: a delicate balance of strength, toughness, weight, flexibility and aesthetic appeal. Your choice of materials, and the ways you bond cabin components, are crucial to achieving that balance. 3M can help with a full range of void fillers, potting and core filling compounds, thermoplastic, structural and core splice adhesives, and many others. Choose solutions to meet a wide range of challenges: FR/FST requirements, bonding to specific substrates, increasing build rates and reducing rework to name a few. No other company in aerospace can provide such a complete portfolio of solutions and capabilities, in the cabin and throughout the aircraft.
Two-part epoxy-based adhesives feature very rapid strength build-up – no sag and no need for installation fixtures, ideal for overhead bins and standoffs.
Lightweight, FR/FST rated 3M compounds deliver very high compressive and structural strength for reinforcing honeycomb and sandwich structures.
Combining a range of strength-to-weight ratios with easy flow and fast cure times, low-density compounds reduce significant weight and reduce installation times.
Interior cabin thermoplastic components filled with 3M glass bubbles can potentially save aerospace OEMs several pounds per aircraft. Extended to an entire fleet over a 15-year operating life, for you this can translate to significant total fuel savings, in addition to important reductions in carbon emissions.
3M delivers the lightest extrudable/pumpable low-density edge and void filling compounds in the aerospace industry, with pumpable options for faster machine dispensing. Not sure what you're looking for? Use the chart below to find the product that meets your needs.
Versatile contact adhesives can be applied by brush or roller for interior rubber and gasket bonding, or mixed with solvent for sprayability.
