Our 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Film AF 131-2 is a modified epoxy adhesive in film form. It provides long-term durability and meets specific challenges for metal and composite solid panel and honeycomb sandwich construction.
3M adhesive films are designed to deliver superior mechanical performance in challenging conditions
The films are available in supported versions, which are typically used for monolithic bonding or honeycomb sandwich. They are also available in unsupported form for reticulation onto honeycomb. These films can be cured from temperatures as low as 180°F to as high as 350°F. Because these films are less messy and don't required mixing, they offer efficiencies in the design process. They are easier to use than typical paste adhesives.
3M is on the Leading Edge of Innovation
Adhesive bonding enables a more lightweight structure because it allows you to use more lightweight composite, as opposed to the metallic materials that were used in previous designs. Structural adhesive films are employed anywhere you are trying to bond metal to composite. This offers good erosion performance while minimizing weight.
