- 5 minute open time ideal for bonding foams and fabrics
- Sprayable thermoplastic adhesive
- Minimal overspray for easy, quick and accurate application
- Designed for large surface assembly
- Very low viscosity for fabric bonding
3M™ Hot Melt Spray Adhesive 6116B is a high-strength thermoplastic used to bond most foams, fabrics, particle board and thin metal. This non-volatile, 100% solids sprayable adhesive offers immediate bond with minimal overspray and provides a more sustainable solution for increasing productivity.
Lower viscosity and open time for bonding foams and fabrics
Offers Excellent Adhesion to Polypropylene and other LSE Plastics
3M™ Hot Melt Spray Adhesive 6116 B
(PDF, 15.92 Kb) is a heat applied, 100% solids, sprayable adhesive for a fast and neat alternative to aerosol, contact and solvent-based adhesives. It bonds to a variety of surfaces including low surface energy (LSE) plastics. Ideal for large surface assembly and does not damage heat sensitive surfaces like polystyrene foam, polyethylene and polypropylene.
Understanding Hot Melt Adhesives
Hot melt adhesives
- Furniture and upholstery
- Large surface lamination
- Cubicle, office partition
- Case inserts
- Seating attachment
(PDF, 1.68 Mb), also known as glue sticks, are liquefied thermoplastic adhesives available in both low and high-temperature versions. Low temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 250°F/121°C temperatures, which makes them ideal for bonding electronics, plastics, cloth and other heat sensitive materials. High temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 380°F/193°C and produce a stronger bond than the low temperature hot melts.
Melted adhesive is extruded through a nozzle using a 3M Hot Melt Applicator by either pneumatic pressure, a mechanical trigger mechanism, or with pressure applied directly on the stick. Different nozzles can be used to apply thin, wide strips or narrow, thicker beads. Hot melt adhesive generally sets quickly, ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the adhesive formulation.
