Improves Adhesion to Glass and Metal
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Metal Primer EC-3901 is a one-component metal and glass primer designed for applications using 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ film and liquid structural adhesives. Formulated to improve adhesion to metal and glass, this primer simplifies production scheduling by protecting the cleaned surfaces until the bonding operations can be completed. EC-3901 also offers resistance to environmental exposure, as well as metal corrosion protection. 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Metal Primer EC-3901 features low viscosity for ease-of-application and ensures complete wetting of the adhesive to adherend surfaces, providing an ideal application surface.

The Primer Advantage
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Metal Primer EC-3901 helps protect metal surfaces against corrosion. Let our unparalleled technical service and support show you how this surface treatment can make a difference to your primer line. EC-3901 also offers these benefits:
  • Ensures that surfaces remain relatively free of oxidation until the bonding application is completed
  • Applies easily by spraying or brushing
  • Can be used on various metal substrates

Primed for Take-Off
In general, 3M Scotch-Weld™ 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 primers help prepare the surfaces for the bonding agents and improve the conditions so that stronger, longer lasting bonds are created.
