3M™ Hot Melt Spray Adhesive 6111
(PDF, 448.46 Kb) 3M™ Sprayable Hot Melt Adhesive 6111 is a heat applied, 100% solids, sprayable adhesive for a fast and neat alternative to aerosol, contact and solvent-based adhesives. It bonds to a variety of surfaces including low surface energy (LSE) plastics. Ideal for large surface assembly and does not damage heat sensitive surfaces like foam, polystyrene foam and polyethylene.
Easy and Accurate Application
- Case inserts
- Seating attachment
- Furniture and upholstery
- Large surface lamination
- Cubicle, office partition
3M™ Hot Melt Spray Adhesive 6111 is ideal for large surface lamination assemblies, such as laminates to table tops, fabric to foam and veneers to furniture and flooring. By simply adding heat, the user can enjoy a strong adhesive that is easily, quickly and accurately applied to one or two surfaces. Once applied, the adhesive cools to form a long lasting bond. As an added bonus, adhesion is virtually immediate, with an open time of up to 6 minutes depending on the substrate.
Understanding Hot Melt Adhesives
Hot melt adhesives
(PDF, 1.68 Mb), also known as glue sticks, are liquefied thermoplastic adhesives available in both low and high-temperature versions. Low temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 250°F/121°C temperatures, which makes them ideal for bonding electronics, plastics, cloth and other heat sensitive materials. High temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 380°F/193°C and produce a stronger bond than the low temperature hot melts.
Melted adhesive is extruded through a nozzle using a 3M Hot Melt Applicator by either pneumatic pressure, a mechanical trigger mechanism, or with pressure applied directly on the stick. Different nozzles can be used to apply thin, wide strips or narrow, thicker beads. Hot melt adhesive generally sets quickly, ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the adhesive formulation.
