    3M™ Structural Adhesive Film SAF6045 is a modified epoxy film adhesive for structural bonding of metals, making it ideal for secure attachment of load-bearing automotive components. Available in die cuts or rolls, this film is a fast, clean alternative to liquid adhesives. It features low initial tack for repositioning, and cures to structural strength even on treated, lubricated surfaces.

    3M™ Structural Adhesive Film SAF6045 is ideal for automotive OEMs
    Applications include door hinge washers, reinforcement plates and bracket attachments requiring load-carrying capability
    Clean, Fast and Strong
    Designed for structurally bonding metals in load-bearing applications, our 3M™ Structural Adhesive Film SAF6045 is ideal for automotive OEMs. The .3 mm modified epoxy film adhesive is available in die-cut pieces or strips which apply easily to a range of treated, untreated, lubricated and unlubricated automotive surfaces. Uncured adhesive features low initial tack for excellent repositionability. Modified epoxy material is compatible with modern e-coats, and cures to structural strength in as little as 15 minutes at 165°C (329°F). The cured adhesive has been rigorously tested for shear and peel strength as well as stress durability, and resists heat, humidity, salt water and solvents.

    Recommended Applications
    • Load-carrying metal attachments
    • Door hinge washers
    • Reinforcement plates
    • Bracket attachment
