From bonding pipes to securing small metal brackets, create lasting bonds that withstand heavy wear with industrial adhesives and tapes. Unlike traditional fasteners which can leave punctures and marks, 3M bonding solutions provide high-strength, invisible bonds that fill gaps and tight, irregularly shaped spaces for a lighter, more aesthetically pleasing product design. They also enhance common metal joint assemblies such as lap, corner and butt joints, distributing multi-directional stresses effectively for greater strength.
Explore how 3M bonding and assembly solutions are engineered to simplify your joint assemblies:
Small joints experience forces from multiple directions. Easy-to-dispense high strength tapes and adhesives reach high holding power in a short time and can withstand these stresses.
Low-viscosity adhesives and easy-to-cut tapes can fit and fill the gaps and crevices to form a strong bond.
Secure joints effectively with our versatile selection of tape and adhesives, designed to bond multiple materials and provide strong adhesion for dissimilar substrates with different surface energies.
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.
