Our 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3789 is a polyamide adhesive formulated to produce an impact-, fuel- and oil-resistant bond on plastics, vinyl, wood and other surfaces. We manufacture this strong adhesive product using a 100% solids, thermoplastic resin. This hot melt also offers good heat resistance (220°F/104°C) and an open bond time that allows for fit adjustment and positioning.

Durable, Multi-Purpose Adhesive
Resilient and strong, 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3789 is a polyamide adhesive that provides impact-resistance for long-lasting durability. This hot melt also offers good heat resistance (220°F/104°C), fuel and oil resistance and an open bond time that allows for adjustment and positioning. This adhesive delivers optimal performance when used with our 3M™ Hot Melt Applicators PG, TC with Quadrack, and EC. 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3789 will also bond wood, polyolefins, corrugated boxes and lightweight substrates on furniture, upholstery and novelties. Its 50-second open bond time is sufficient for positioning and adjusting and supports efficient production for many applications.
3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3789 can be used across many industries for a wide variety of applications, including:
Wood to wood assembly of non-structural components in home and office furniture and cabinetry
“Third-hand” holding components while structural wood adhesive cures
Bond fabric to wood for welting and gimping
Secure drawer bottoms, guides, and stiffeners
Attach upholstery to wood and plastic
Assemble decorative crown moldings
About Hot Melt Adhesives
Hot melts (hot glue sticks) are 100% solids thermoplastic resins. These adhesives are engineered to re-melt after bonding if exposed to high enough temperatures. The advantages of hot melt adhesives is that, unlike mechanical fasteners and sealing tapes, they are virtually invisible between surfaces.
Our hot melt adhesives liquefy when heated, quickly fill gaps and wet the bonding surface. When they are applied to a surface, they cool, harden and reach their bond strength within seconds. Due to their quick work-life, you can move assemblies immediately upon application which eliminates the need for clamps, fixturing or additional drying time and energy.
Keep Production Flowing with 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives
3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3789 quickly fills gaps and wets the bonding surface. When applied to a surface, it cools, hardens and reaches its bond strength within seconds, eliminating the need for clamps, fixturing or additional drying time. 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives and Applicators are advanced hand-held systems to help improve productivity, lower cost, minimize waste and keep production flowing.
