Outlasts mechanical fasteners, creates lasting bond

Screws, welding, and drilling distort metal surfaces, is vulnerable to corrosion and needs to be polished for a smooth finish. Skip the tedious preparation and finishing steps with the convenience and strength of 3M’s industrial adhesives and tapes. Only a thin layer is needed along the joints for a strong bond. It disperses the stress and reduces joint fatigue. Suitable for challenging application types, it maintains its flexible bond even when exposed to extreme weather conditions. Applied between the bonded substrates, it leaves a clean finish.

Explore how 3M bonding and assembly solutions can streamline your metalworking process.
