Quick Adhesion for Rapid Strength
Featuring rapid strength build-up, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ PUR Adhesive TE040 is a one-component, moisture-curing structural adhesive that offers 40 seconds to handling strength after closing the bond and is ideal for bonding most woods, plastics, metals and glass. Exceptionally strong, this adhesive provides over 1,000 lbs. holding strength. As a 100% solids adhesive, our formula produces fast bonds with reduced prep time and provides high-strength and durable adhesion without the need of drying and ventilation equipment. This low-viscosity adhesive is highly plasticizer resistant and can be used to bond heat-sensitive materials. This adhesive is dispensed using the 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ PUR Easy 250 Applicator.

Recommended Applications
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ PUR Adhesive TE040 can be used across a wide range of industries for many applications, including:

  • Wood or plastic decorative trip and moldings for furniture and cabinets
  • Edge moldings for countertops, tables, shelving and desks
  • Wood of MDF drawer bottoms, backs and facings
  • Modular office wall partitions
  • Interior and exterior wood and metal household door assembly
  • Bond and seal wood or plastic stiles and rails in shutters
  • Rubber insulation to wood, plastic or metal
  • Fiberglass to wood in marine interiors
  • Metal to laminated honeycomb in trade show booths

The Difference is in the Cure
Our family of one-part Polyurethane Reactive (PUR) adhesives employs dual strengths: PURs build handling strength immediately after part assembly and structural strength as they chemically bond to the substrate. Their fast-acting strength begins to build as the adhesive cools for rapid, convenient adhesive application with minimal downtime from clamping or fixturing. Their reactive nature achieves dramatically strong bonds to the surface for a durable bond with good temperature and chemical resistance. Unlike two-part adhesives there is no mixing or metering and unlike water and solvent adhesives there are no VOCs and virtually no overspray.

PURs offer an attractive option; from woodworkers searching for thin bond lines and replacing unsightly mechanical fasteners, to plastic, glass and metal materials assembly in automotive, construction and many other industries.

Formulated for Fast Adhesion
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ PUR Adhesive TE040 is a part of our family of exceptionally formulated, one-component, moisture-curing, urethane adhesives. For quick and tough results, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ PUR Adhesive TE040 offers the long-term performance to meet a variety of demanding applications. With a rapid rate of strength build-up and durable adhesion, enjoy the advantages that come from an adhesive designed to produce fast, resilient bonds.
