Improve productivity and aesthetics while lowering costs and minimizing waste with the 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive System, an environmentally friendly and virtually odorless bonding solution.
3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives are 100% solids thermoplastic resins that liquefy when heated. When applied to a surface they cool, harden and reach their bond strength within seconds. Due to their quick work life you can move assemblies immediately upon application, eliminating the need for clamps, fixturing or additional drying time and energy.
3M™ Hot Melt Applicators are designed to be easy to use while providing customizable options for your bonding requirements. From detailed work to high-capacity production our applicators are easy to use and help you improve productivity, lower costs and minimize waste.
3M™ Hot Melt Sprayable Adhesives are fast, effective and especially good for bonding in bulk. Simply spray a controlled pattern of 100% solids adhesive right where you want it on one or both surfaces and bond the substrates immediately. Applications include furniture cushions, foam inserts, modular office panels, gym floor pads and more.
3M™ Hot Melt Accessories provide customizable options to meet your application and assembly needs including bench mounts, foot pedals and other options for easy application plus Quadrack™ converters for greater capacity. Specialty tips such as spreaders, T-tips and extension tips can provide added functionality and precise application to help improve throughput.
3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives deliver superior wood-to-wood bonding for woodworking projects as well as fabric-to-wood and wood-to-plastic for furniture making. They're ideal for common assembly types like small joints, large surface lamination, mounting and trim attachments.
For excellence in high-temperature bonding, 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives are ideal for woven and nonwoven fabrics, foams and plastics. They're ideal for common assembly types like large surface lamination, sealing, potting and encapsulating. They can also be used for rigidizing components on printed circuit boards to add stability during assembly, shipping and end use. Sprayable hot melts are available for large surface assembly.
Bond and seal any size configuration of corrugated carton quickly and invisibly, especially coated, printed and waxed surfaces that may be difficult for tape to seal. 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives easily attach inserts, including heat-sensitive foam.
3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives bond to numerous materials, including metal and plastic, for quick and easy assembly. Due to their quick work life you can move assemblies immediately upon application, eliminating the need for clamps, fixturing or additional drying time.
3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives make it easy to quickly and securely bond foam spacers in three-dimensional corrugated cardboard POP displays. They’re also ideal for attaching samples like wood flooring, laminates, foams, fabrics and other materials.
