3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Engineering Adhesives

If you need a strong, reliable and instant bond, 3M Scotch-Weld Cyanoacrylate (superglue) Adhesives will do the job like no other. Available in various viscosities, these rubber-toughened and low odour adhesives will bond plastic, rubber and porous materials in under 30 seconds.

Our Scotch-Weld Adhesives also bond glass instantly, producing optically clear bond lines and can also join plastic to metal. Within the Scotch-Weld range you will also find thread lockers and UV curing adhesives that lock nuts, seal pipes and replace gaskets that are designed to withstand vibrations and movement, while retaining a reliable seal.

Record Breaking Instant Adhesive

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Instant Adhesive was recently responsible for a Guinness World Records-setting feat, lifting an 8.1 metric ton (17,857 pound, 2990 PSI) forklift in the air for one hour. This amazingly successful demonstration set a new world record for the heaviest weight lifted with glue. The vehicle was suspended from a crane by a steel cylinder only 7 cm in diameter, with the two parts of the cylinder secured together with 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Plastic & Rubber Instant Adhesive PR100.
