Contact Adhesive

Our range of solvent and water-based 3M™ Contact Adhesive products have a number of uses and provide good bonding strength for a variety of surfaces.

Our solvent based range offers more freedom and is particularly useful for creative activities as the material being bonded can be re-positioned until the solvent evaporates. Users can be confident that applications will be secure and long-lasting because the strength of this contact adhesive can be increased by applying layers on top of each other.

Our water-based products provide a lighter, more manageable spray that prevents materials from getting too wet and wrinkling. With longer opening times it also means that manufacturing processes can be a lot more flexible.
