Outlasts mechanical fasteners, creates strong, lasting metallic bonds

Eliminate screws, welding and drilling techniques that distort metallic surfaces and place them at risk of corrosion. With 3M industrial adhesives and tapes, you can skip the tedious preparation and finishing steps and achieve exceptional strength and durability for metal to metal bonds. Only a thin layer is needed for a lasting attachment, its flexible properties allowing it to disperse stress and reduce joint fatigue. It also maintains a secure bond even when exposed to high temperatures and tough environmental conditions, delivering a smooth seamless finish without the need for polishing.
