These one-part, solvent-free, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Instant Adhesives reach handling strength at room temperature in 5-10 seconds and 80% of full strength in one hour, achieving bonds with tensile strength up to 5,000 psi. A single drop per square inch can bond wood, metal, leather, ceramics, acidic or contaminated surfaces and rubber and low surface energy (LSE) plastics.
Ideal for small parts, applications requiring structural strength, joints, narrow bond lines and wicking applications, they enable parts to be handled quickly during production, increasing productivity and keeping manufacturing bottlenecks to a minimum.
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Instant Adhesive sets World Record
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Instant Adhesive was recently responsible for a Guinness World Records-setting feat, lifting an 8.1 metric ton (17,857 pound, 2990 PSI) forklift in the air for one hour. This amazingly successful demonstration set a new world record for the heaviest weight lifted with glue. The vehicle was suspended from a crane by a steel cylinder only 7 cm in diameter, with the two parts of the cylinder secured together with 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Plastic & Rubber Instant Adhesive PR100.
