3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Film AF 6 is an unsupported, thermosetting adhesive film, developed for the structural bonding of metals. It is ideal where high peel strengths are required and its one hour cure rate saves time. We formulated this nitrile-phenolic adhesive to deliver good flexibility, shear and peel strengths at service temperatures from -67°F to 180°F (-55°C to 82°C).

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Film AF 6 retains its strength in a variety of environments, even after aging. It's been designed to meet numerous customer specs in aerospace manufacturing.

Saves Time
Where many liquid adhesives require lengthy bond times under cost-producing heat and pressure, Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Film AF 6 requires a one hour heated cure to reach full bonding strength, saving you costs and process time.

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Film AF 6 retains its strength in a variety of environments, even after aging. It's been designed to meet numerous customer specs in aerospace manufacturing.
3M adhesive films are designed to deliver superior mechanical performance in challenging conditions
Reduces Waste
Dispense with the mess with our dry nitrile-phenolic adhesives instead of liquid adhesives. Down time for cleanup that comes with using mess-prone liquid adhesives will become a distant memory when you use 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Film AF 6 to drive efficiency and superior bonding results.

Promotes Efficiency
Our adhesive film is a complete, dry, bonding system that has a longer shelf life than liquid adhesives. Our film can be cut to fit, which creates none of the waste and mess from liquid run off.

Creates Precision Solutions
Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Film AF 6 is coated to an exact thickness to meet requirements for precise tolerances. The dry film allows for even application and consistent bond strength over the bonded area whereas liquid adhesives are difficult to apply evenly when precision is required.

The most advanced commercial aircraft designs use 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Nitrile Phenolic Films for primary structures requiring sonic fatigue durability and service temperatures ranging from -67°F to 180°F (-55°C to 82°C). Nitrile phenolics such as 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Film AF 6 can outperform liquid epoxies at high temperatures and provide greater strength retention after aging in many environmental conditions. Save time, save money and save the aggravation of managing liquid adhesives with our line of 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Nitrile Phenolic Films.
