Solvent-based adhesives are popular with industrial users because bonds can be made quickly and they have good adhesion performance. However, they also come with drawbacks including flammability and the potential for exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Many customers from industries like furniture manufacturing, woodworking, foam bonding, and specialty vehicle manufacturing would prefer water-based adhesives, but these products have often been perceived as offering inferior speed or inferior strength. 3M Fast Tack Water Based Adhesive 1000NF is specially designed to address these concerns by providing a unique combination of fast bonding, repositionability and high ultimate strength.
