3M’s experts in structural adhesive bonding are here to help you make your aircraft nacelle designs durable, lightweight and efficient to produce. Learn more.
The 3M sol-gel products provide surface treatment and adhesion enhancement performance on metal substrates on par with conventional chemical etch and anodize systems. Enables “on-wing” surface preparation for metal bond applications for challenging substrates such as aluminum, titanium, nickel and stainless steel. Complimentary to 3M corrosion inhibiting bond primers such as EW-5005 and EC-3917.
3M corrosion inhibiting bond primers ensure long term durability for the bonded substrates. These products are available in conventional solvent based chromated versions as well as water based chromated and non-chromated versions. They are compatible with both conventional etch and anodize surface preparations as well as grit blast–sol gel.
