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
