Discover how structural bonding with adhesive liquid can be a more efficient alternative vs. clinch bonding or mechanical fasteners for reducing NVH in body-in-white applications. These liquids can be applied quickly and efficiently and provide flexible working times. They are heat-cured to structural strength at variable rates, using established OEM processes, so there's usually no need to add process steps for adhesive cure.
Many of our two-part epoxies are available in Duo-Pak cartridge and bulk containers and can be applied with 3M application equipment that allows for precise, consistent mix ratios and minimal product waste.
An efficient and effective solution for NVH management, 3M structural adhesive tapes allow for structural adhesive strength in precise locations without the need for liquid application equipment or mechanical fasteners. They are ideal for applications where corrosion is a main concern. These structural adhesive tapes improve quality by reducing variability of application and can bond to a variety of metal substrates. They also expand during cure to fill gaps, which can help reduce warranty claims in some applications. Structural adhesive tapes make for efficient processing and assembly, especially for bonding long, thin areas where the use of spot welds or mechanical fasteners has traditionally required extra time and labor.
Developed specifically for reducing resonant noise, vibration and fatigue in automotive applications, our polymer-adhesive vibration control tapes are foil-backed to dissipate vibration into negligible heat. These 3M automotive tapes have a liner and are die-cuttable.
3M is constantly working to meet the evolving challenges of automotive OEM and Tier suppliers worldwide. If you need help finding an existing solution or would like to talk about specific ideas you’re working on, get in touch with us.
