Overcome the design and strength constraints posed by mechanical fasteners. Rigid nuts and bolts concentrate stress to a single point, leading to joint fatigue and accelerating the effects of peel and shear stresses. 3M's industrial adhesives and tapes increase surface-to-surface contact, dispersing stress over an entire area for a stronger, more durable bond. Applied between surfaces, the adhesive's invisible joints deliver a smooth, seamless finish that elevates your product designs.
Designed to make laminate assemblies fast and convenient, here's how 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes can streamline your process:
Available in aerosol spray, cylinder, and even tape formats, these adhesives will optimise your laminate assembly process. Conveniently apply the adhesive manually or with the help of an applicator.
Reduce unsightly punctures, marks and distortions on adhered surfaces with 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes. Featuring low-sag properties, these bonding solutions enable better precision with their ability to reposition parts after application.
Adhesives and tapes are weakest in one-dimensional stresses concentrated on the leading edge of a bond. This is where mechanical fastening performs best. The easiest way to mitigate peel in a surface lamination is by incorporating mechanical fasteners at the edge of the bond. These serve as peel terminators and prevent cracks from propagating through the bulk of the bond.
Streamline your processes and achieve greater cost-efficiency with adhesives and tapes that deliver reliable bonding for any design. Contact our experts to tailor a solution for your assembly needs.
