ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3M introduces 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Low Odor Acrylic Adhesives DP8805NS and
DP8810NS. These next-generation Structural Acrylic Adhesives provide
dramatic improvements over conventional high-odor acrylics, with
significant benefits in productivity, performance, cost savings, and
health and safety concerns.
Users of conventional acrylic adhesives know that these products
typically raise inconvenient issues with odor, set times, impact
resistance and storage requirements. But the new 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Low
Odor Acrylic Adhesives are designed to solve these challenges while also
enhancing performance and productivity.
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Low Odor Acrylic Adhesives offer an incredibly fast
cure rate, reaching structural strength in about nine minutes—just half
the time of ordinary acrylic adhesives. 3M Acrylic Adhesives also have
higher impact resistance on plastics and metals. The new adhesives
additionally provide excellent shear and peel performance, and improved
adhesion to many plastics and metals, expanding the range of
applications for which acrylic adhesives can be used.
The new adhesives are uniquely formulated compared to conventional
acrylic adhesives, helping to reduce pungent odors and ease health and
safety concerns. They are also non-flammable, making them even more
facility friendly. With an extended 18-month shelf life and no
refrigeration required, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Low Odor Acrylic Adhesives
provide more than double the shelf life of conventional acrylic
adhesives, and can be stored at lower costs.
Like many 3M innovations, the development of 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Low Odor
Acrylic Adhesives was enabled by collaboration between divisions of 3M.
In this case, 3M’s dental division had developed a fast-setting, low
odor dental composite material that has brought long lasting smiles for
many years. 3M product developers saw the potential for this technology
and worked to adapt it to bring those same unique benefits to Structural
With applications in a broad range of industries, including
transportation, metal working, plastics/composites, sign manufacturing
and more, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Low Odor Acrylic Adhesives can bring benefits
to countless workers and processes.
