Highlights
  • Spray, brush or roller application meets a variety of process requirements
  • Specifically designed to work with 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive AF 30
  • Promotes long-term durability in bonded joints
  • Stable coating protects etched and anodized substrates for long-term storage
  • Can be co-cured with adhesives at 350°F to accommodate a variety of requirements

We developed 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Primer EC-1593 for improved adhesion and to promote long-term durability for joints in metal bonding applications. This solvent-based specialized adhesive primer is especially effective with 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive AF 30.

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Primer EC-1593 helps ensure complete wetting of the film adhesive system to bonding surfaces and improves durability of the film adhesive. The EC-1593 provides a high degree of protection against corrosive environments, both inside and outside the adhesive bondline, and is designed for optimal performance when used with 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Bonding Films, particularly the nitrile phenolic Scotch-Weld AF 30. When cured with a 350°F adhesive film, it helps promote long-term durability for bonded metal joints. EC-1593 retains high shear strength to 350°F (177°C) when used with Scotch-Weld AF 30.

Promoting Corrosion Control
Our formula provides corrosion protection inside and outside the bondline. And to make matters easier, EC-1593 heat cures to form a protective coating against corrosion. When dried at room temperature and cured at 290°F, EC-1593 provides a solvent resistant coating for long-term durable protection. The stable coating also protects etched and anodized substrates for long-term storage.

The Primer Advantage
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Primer EC-1593 helps protect surfaces against corrosion. Additionally, this primer can help improve production rates by offering high transfer efficiency for less overspray waste and quick flash off for no wait-time between passes. Let our unparalleled technical service and support show you how this surface treatment can make a difference to your primer line. 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesive Primer EC-1593 also offers these benefits:

  • Excellent corrosion protection
  • Robust mechanical performance
  • Impressive hot/wet durability
  • Serves 350°F co-cure requirements
  • Sprayable, brush or roller application for a variety of process options

Primed for Take-Off
In general, 3M Scotch-Weld™ structural adhesive primers complement the Scotch Weld™ Structural Adhesives portfolio and can be used to protect prepared substrates to be bonded. They facilitate "wet-out" of the primary adhesive agent to facilitate the bond between substrate and coating extrudate, and then are cured to enhance chemical resistance. Our adhesive primers help prepare the surfaces for the bonding agents and improve the conditions so that the adhesives are more effective and create stronger, longer lasting bonds.
