We formulated 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Plastic & Rubber Instant Adhesive PR1500 as a high-strength, high viscosity industrial adhesive. This rapid-setting cyanoacrylate cures at room temperature and is formulated to give exceptional performance on many difficult to bond substrates such as EPDM rubber, heavily plasticized PVC, ABS and nylon.
Fast setting formulation helps keep processes moving quickly
Instant adhesive works well on difficult to bond surfaces such as EPDM rubber and nylon
Thick adhesive provides gap filling capabilities
High viscosity formula will not wick into unwanted areas
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Plastic & Rubber Instant Adhesive PR1500 has good adhesion to many substrates in addition to the difficult to bond EPDM rubber and nylon. This thick, clear adhesive also bonds well to many other common surfaces as well such as rigid foam, metal, plastics and rubber. Our rapid-set adhesive keeps projects moving forward and productivity high. Its high viscosity helps the adhesive remain in place with no migration and bonds in seconds. This fast-acting cyanoacrylate can also be used to fill gaps create a rapid-setting bond in production applications that require fast-paced, high volume processes. Handling strength is achieve between 10 and 100 seconds, depending on environmental conditions, and reach its full bond strength within 24 hours, providing an impressive shear strength of 2800 pound-force per square inch.
Military & Government?
Like many of our instant adhesives, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Plastic & Rubber Instant Adhesive PR1500 is simple to apply. Our clear liquid is easily and precisely applied from the bottle – no additional tools necessary. This is a single component industrial strength adhesive, so no additional additives need to be mixed to form the adhesive. Once applied, a maximum wait of 100 seconds is all that is required for the adhesive to reach handling strength, giving you time to properly position parts before setting. After the parts are properly aligned, the full cure is achieved in 24 hours, at 72° F (22°C).
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Plastic & Rubber Instant Adhesive PR1500 bonds to similar and dissimilar materials including rigid foam (beadboard styrene)? , flexible foam (latex, urethane)? , fabric, felt, cork & fibrous glass? , rigid foam (urethane)? , plastics (high performance nylon)?, plastics (ABS, PVC, Acrylic)?, metal?, plastics (polyolefins and thermoplastic elastomers)? paper & cardboard?, plastics (flexible vinyl)? and EPDM Rubber?.
What are Instant Adhesives?
Instant adhesives, commonly referred to as "instant glue," are cyanoacrylate based formulas that are strong, fast-acting adhesives used in industrial, medical and household applications. In general, they are an acrylic resin that rapidly polymerizes in the presence of water (specifically hydroxide ions), forming long, strong chains, joining the bonded surfaces together. Cyanoacrylates typically have a short shelf life and may have some minor toxicity. As a liquid, cyanoacrylate consists of monomers of cyanoacrylate molecules. Depending on the intended application or to facilitate easy handling, a cyanoacrylate adhesive may be formulated with an ingredient such as fumed silica to make it more viscous or gel-like.
Because the presence of moisture causes the glue to set, exposure to normal levels of humidity in the air causes a thin skin to form within seconds, which greatly slows the reactive curing process. Because of this, cyanoacrylate should be applied thinly to ensure that the reaction proceeds rapidly and a strong bond is formed within a reasonable time. Our instant ca adhesives apply right from the container and rapidly reach handling strength at room temperature. A single drop per square inch can bond many plastics, rubber, metal and more with tensile strength up to 5,000 psi.
Superior Aesthetic Quality
Unlike mechanical fastening methods, our clear-formula instant adhesive doesn’t damage the appearance of finished projects because there is no need to drill holes – creating an aesthetically superior look that eliminates the need for unsightly bolts, screws, rivets and fasteners. The 2,800 pound-force per square inch shear strength for steel makes 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Plastic & Rubber Instant Adhesive PR1500 ideal for use in a number of industries, including: transportation, specialty vehicle, metalworking, construction, medical, military and government, general industrial, MRO, electronics and consumer goods.
