    3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Void Filling and Edge Sealing Compound EC-3524 B/A is a fire retardant, void filling, edge-sealing, potting and complex gap-filling epoxy compound for aerospace weight reduction. It is also effective as an abradable compound in aircraft engines. EC-3524 B/A provides a 90 minute worklife and is fully cured within 48 hours at 75°F (24°C).

    3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Void Filling and Edge Sealing Compound EC-3524 B/A is an ideal solution for void filling, edge sealing, and as an abradable compound in aircraft engines. We formulated our two-part fire retardant epoxy compound with a 90 minute worklife to provide ample time to position parts for fit and keep processes moving forward. It achieves full cure within 48 hours at 75°F (24°C) and is available in blue, off-white or black when mixed. It is a malleable paste with an extended worklife that allows shaping for applications such as a fairing compound for aerodynamic flushness, and can also be used for bonding inserts. As a fire retardant epoxy compound, 3M Scotch-Weld EC-3524 can be used to create an effective seal. Its 100% solids content helps it hold shape as well.

    Two-part room-temperature curing EC-3524 B/A is applied to the exposed panels in a bulkhead to stiffen and improve compression strength
    Seals and provides impact resistance to honeycomb panels edges
    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 Compounds EC-3550 offers easy hand-mixing for fast, professional results. And its stand-alone fire, smoke and toxicity compliance provides the confidence of using the right product in the right place.

    Our specially engineered low density fire retardant formula, EC-3524 B/A offers complex gap filling and simplifies other applications for faster and more economical performance. EC-3524 B/A offers a unique combination of easy "dispense-ability" and non-sag performance, resulting in a number of productivity-enhancing advantages.

    Fast, Direct Application
    EC-3524 B/A can be hand-mixed. It reduces or eliminates hand troweling and trapped air that helps eliminate pinholes, voids and porosity. EC-3524 B/A is ideal for filling edges in honeycomb sandwich construction for galleys, luggage bins, partition walls, lavatories, seating, ceiling panels, floorboards and passenger doors.

    Wing-mounted jet engine nacelle on aircraft in flight
    Scotch-Weld EC-3524 B/A Compound can be used as an abradable compound in aircraft engine nacelle
    Fast-Cure, Non-Brittle, Non-Sag Material
    EC-3524 B/A 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.

    Ready to Sand
    At a room temperature of 75°F (24°C), this compound is sandable within 3 hours of mixing to keep processes moving forward. 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-3524 B/A fast and easy to use. Our shelf-stable formula requires no freezer storage.

    Packaging Options to Meet the Need
    3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Void Filling Compounds EC-3524 B/A is available in a variety of kit sizes ideal for myriad applications and needs.
