Acrylic Adhesives

Multi-substrate bonding for designers, engineers and manufacturers who need efficient bonding and greater design flexibility.

ASK A 3M EXPERT

Fast, easy adhesion with excellent bonding strength

  • For reliable long-term bonding of dissimilar substrates, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives can significantly improve throughput and productivity. Created to provide efficient bonding and greater design flexibility, these adhesives can withstand extreme temperatures, apply easily, build strength rapidly and resist impact and peel stresses. They can replace metal fasteners for both static and dynamic loads and are suitable for bonding most plastics, aluminum, steel and oily metal surfaces.

    3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives also offer non-flammable classifications and low odor formulations to help improve the working environment.


  • Discover the important attributes of Acrylic Adhesives


Strength

Acrylics are nearly as strong as epoxies, with a chemistry that can be modified to provide both high peel and shear strength

Bonding

Acrylics adhere to a wide variety of materials, including many plastics

Process Efficiency

Acrylics have faster cure speeds and higher tolerance for unprepared surfaces than epoxies or urethanes

Impact Resistance

Depending on the chemistry, structural adhesive bonds provide the strength or flexibility to resist shock, vibration and impact loads

Lightweighting

Adhering to new materials and distributing stress along the entire bond area helps designers use thinner and lighter materials

NVH

Stiff bonds resist vibration and reduce opportunities for loose parts to make unwanted noise

Aesthetics

Structural adhesives provide better product appearance through invisible joints and smooth bond lines

Water Intrusion

Structural adhesives provide a continuous bond line to prevent the migration of fluids, dust and dirt

Innovation in Design

The ability of structural adhesives to bond a wide variety of substrates allows the freedom to design for the best materials available
