    3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Void Filling Compound EC-3550 B/A FST (Fire Smoke Toxicity) is an advanced technology compound developed to help cut production cost and time, reduce weight and address safety regulations governing aircraft interiors. Our lightweight, low density product helps eliminate process steps, reduces worker touch time and speeds throughput compared to hand mixing and applying.

    Customers Talk, We Listen
    You told us you needed a product that combined ease of use and superior performance. 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Void Filling Compound EC-3550 B/A has the combination of superior extrudability, low density that is easy to apply and finish for fast, professional results. And its stand-alone fire, smoke and toxicity performance provides the confidence of using the right product in the right place.

    Less touch time means less cycle time. Our specially engineered low density flame-retardant formula, EC-3550 B/A FST offers complex gap filling and simplifies other applications for faster and more economical performance. EC-3550 B/A FST offers a unique combination of easy “dispense-ability” and non-sag performance, resulting in a number of productivity-enhancing advantages.

    Fast, Direct Application
    EC-3550 B/A FST is extrudable and pumpable. It reduces or eliminates hand troweling, avoiding the trapped air that results in pinholes, voids and porosity while reducing product waste. EC-3550 is ideal for filling edges in honeycomb sandwich construction for galleys, luggage bins, partition walls, lavatories, seating, ceiling panels, floorboards and passenger doors.

    Non-Brittle, Non-sag Material
    EC-3550 B/A FST is easier to handle and resists chip-outs and breakouts when cured. Its non-sag property allows application to multiple work pieces at one time. In addition, this compound exhibits good paint retention and adhesive bond strength.

    Put a Freeze on Inventory Cost
    Our shelf-stable formula requires no freezer storage. It costs less to store and can be closer to the work when needed. In aircraft manufacture and MRO, time is money so we made EC-3550 B/A FST fast and easy to use. Depending on cure methods, EC-3550 B/A FST can be sanded and machined within 6 to 12 hours and help reduce cycle times.

    Science Applied to Common Sense
    The versatile formula also helps meet a variety of requirements in aircraft manufacture and MRO. Our aerospace-minded chemists and engineers teamed up to create this non-sag, non-brittle compound for void-filling, edge sealing/close-out, corner reinforcement, local reinforcement for mechanical fixation and complex gap-filling in honeycomb sandwich structures. It carries stand-alone FR/FST compliance and is non-halogenated and antimony free. EC-3550 offers excellent water and chemical resistance and professional, void-free results.

    Packaging Options to Meet the Need
    3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Void Filling Compound EC-3550 B/A FST is available in dual-chamber cartridges for precise application and dispensing. Our 400ml cartridges and 60L bulk kits are ideal for use with pneumatic dispensers and bulk pumping equipment, respectively.
