1. Anaerobic Adhesives - Very high performance, single component engineering adhesives that cure in the absence of air and in the presence of metal parts. Anaerobic adhesives are available in a wide range of strengths and viscosities. The products are separated into application categories and include threadlocking, gasket making, retaining and pipe sealants.

2. Cyanoacrylate Adhesives - High specification single component adhesives that cure based on traces of moisture found on surfaces. Commonly referred to as superglues, cyanoarcrylates bond on a variety of substrates including metals, plastics, rubbers, wood and ceramics.

The Cyanoacrylate range must meet a number of precise bonding guidelines. These are that they should be high temperature resistant, toughened for rubber, have a low odour level, capable of bonding metals and be low bloom.

3. UV Curing Adhesives - Created to be high performing, these are a single component adhesive. They are designed to cure when subjected to ultra violet lighting. They can cure very quickly, often within seconds to create an invisible bond line and become very strong. Ultra violet adhesives will bond most types of glass, plastic and metal substrates when there is a minimum of 1 surface that lets penetration of ultra violet light.

Ultra violet curing adhesives are offered in a variety of viscosities, they have curling properties which allows for a wide range of applications. Normal applications can be the bonding of glass, devices used in the medical profession and electronic potting.

4. Structural Adhesives and High Temperature Sealants - Structural adhesives provide a new range of application specific products that perfectly compliment the existing 3M structural adhesives portfolio.

Silver loaded epoxy adhesives are designed to produce bonds which are electronically conductive. This feature allows them to be used in a variety of electrical and electronic purposes. If you are looking to make repairs to piping, tanks and castings, you can use a two-part putty which is ideal for these MRO applications. A two part but no-mix acrylic adhesive is SA30, handling strength is available after just one and a half minutes as well as being useful on most plastics. Due to this feature, it is well used in the signage market.
