Refine your assembly technique to meet new challenges in design.

  • From construction facades to elevator walls, panel-to-frame and stiffener-to-panel assemblies provide the strength and support needed for demanding structural applications. Especially for decorative and load-bearing panels which are exposed to stresses and environmental changes, rigidity is required for a longer-lasting hold.

    These assemblies also involve bonding with dissimilar materials, which call for a secure and durable attachment. 3M Industrial Tapes and Adhesives deliver fast, reliable bonding for a wide range of substrates, and improve the aesthetics of your end-product with their nearly invisible fastening.

Design challenges associated with panel assemblies

  • compression and shear stress
  • Bond strength

    Mitigate the effects of gravitational force and reduce shear stress on the joints by distributing along its lineal length. A tape or adhesive provides a larger surface-to-surface contact for a bond that lasts.

  •  Stiffener applied to panel
  • Product aesthetics

    Design signs and buildings with a smoother, cleaner appearance that traditional fastener can’t match. 3M bonding solutions fasten seamlessly without the need to cover weld marks, pocks and punctures.

  • Bonding dissimilar materials

    Expand the possibilities of your panel designs and ensure a lasting bond for various subtrate combinations. 3M's range of tapes and adhesives offer effective bonding for a wide variety of materials, providing strong adhesion for dissimilar substrates with varying surface energies. 

Design confidently with the trusted solution

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. 

Performance factors for panel assemblies

Bonding and assembly solutions with the features below are best suited for panel assemblies:

  • Flexibility in handling dynamic loads or thermal expansion mismatch
  • Dead load holding strength
  • Fills gaps or is customisable to fit from end to end
  • Provides water-tight sealing

3M tapes, adhesives and sealers are designed to maintain elasticity for dynamic loads and allow for expansion differences when temperatures change. Explore the range of bonding solutions for your project:
