Manufacturers around the world rely on acrylic adhesives to design and produce innovative new products.
Acrylic adhesives improve aesthetics, bond to plastics and metals, and even deliver a secure bond between
oily or contaminated surfaces. Despite improving many aspects of the assembly process, traditional acrylic
adhesives have been challenged by:
High levels of odors that can cause EHS concerns
Longer set times that slow assembly processes
Lower impact resistance that result in brittle bonds
Limited shelf life
Next Generation Advancements
The development of 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Low Odor Acrylic Adhesives was enabled by collaboration between divisions of 3M. 3M’s dental division had developed a fast-setting, low odor dental impression material that has brought long lasting smiles for many years. 3M product developers saw the potential for this technology and worked to adapt it to bring those same unique benefits to Structural Acrylic Adhesives.
Designed for innovation, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Acrylic Adhesives will help you improve
both productivity and performance, while reducing environmental concerns and costs.
