Structural Adhesives


Structural Adhesives are high strength load-bearing adhesives that exhibit assembly strength comparable to welding.  They are designed to provide a minimum of 1000 psi overlap shear strength and often replace unsightly, cumbersome mechanical fasteners.  The bond is frequently stronger than the materials being bonded.

Bond rubber, glass, fabric, leather, wood, metals, and plastics including Polyethylene Polypropylene and oily metals.

Epoxy, Acrylic and Urethane Adhesives

Epoxy, Acrylic and Urethane Adhesives allow greater design leeway, alternative lighter weight materials, less machining and more durability.  Specialized formulas for high impact, creep, heat and environmental resistance or flexibility and void-filling. The hand held Duo-Pack format allows the adhesives to be easily dispensed and properly mixed to ensure performance.

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Two-Part Epoxy Adhesive bonds steel couplings into aluminum tubing of a bicycle frame. Couplings are threaded for easy assembly and disassembly.

Instant Adhesives (Crazy Glue)

Built for speed and performance; Cyanoacrylate (CA) is a great choice.  CA adhesives rapidly reach handling strength in 5-10 seconds and 80% of full strength in an hour. A single drop per square inch can bond many plastics, rubber, metals and more with tensile strength up to 5,000 psi.

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ CA40 Instant Adhesive works on many problem surfaces where other adhesives may fail, such as EPDM rubber.

For wood and veneer repair, CA40H is a high viscosity liquid for a fast void-filling bond.

Application Equipment

For high speed perfomance and 'take it to the job convenience', we offer a large variety of 3M applictors and nozzles to fit your application and improve productivity. 

Polyurethane Reactive (PUR) Adhesives

Easy-to-use and maintain, PUR moisture curing polyurethane adhesives combine the speed of hot melt adhesive technology with the performance of a structural adhesive.

Bond wood or plastic rosettes to wood drawers without fixturing or drying time.

Assemble miter joints with a tough, flexible bond for long life durability.
