Metal Parts for Aerospace

These solutions represent the 70-plus years that 3M has spent developing better ways to work in the aerospace industry. We are experts at bonding to metals, protecting them from corrosion and helping prepare them for coatings and paint. We have continually pioneered the development of polysulfide sealant technology for lighter weight, easier shop handling and minimal shrinkage. A wide range of adhesives is designed specifically for bonding to metal and painted metal. They are available in a broad range of service and cure temperatures. You’ll also find non-chromated surface pre-treatments for aluminum alloys, stainless steel and titanium, and water-based and NCCI primers that promote long-term bonding after surface prep.
