Considerations in Metal Bonding with Structural Adhesives
This webinar explains how the epoxies, acrylics and urethanes inside the Two-Part Structural Portfolio from 3M are extremely strong and can withstand high load-bearing conditions. Learn how:
- Epoxies exhibit impact strength, environmental resistance and are excellent for bonding metals and composites.
- Acrylics have a fast rate of strength buildup and are ideal for bonding plastics and metals, even without extensive surface preparation for oily or low surface energy substrates. New acrylic adhesives have the highest potential strength on a range of bare metals, and can withstand powdercoat oven cycles. They’re noncorrosive on metals and bond through surface oils to paints and coatings without abrasion
- Urethanes are flexible with high peel and excellent durability.
