What is the 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Surface Insensitive Instant Adhesive SI Gel used for?
The 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Surface Insensitive Instant Adhesive SI Gel is a fast-setting, high-strength adhesive designed to bond surfaces with little or no surface preparation.
What are the benefits of using this product?
This adhesive offers excellent bonding strength and requires very little surface preparation, making it ideal for use on dissimilar substrates. Its gel formula also allows for precision application and controlled dispensing.
Can this product be used in extreme temperatures?
Yes, this adhesive has good heat resistance up to 250°F (121°C) and can handle short-term exposure to even higher temperatures.
How many cartridges come in a case of the 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Surface Insensitive Instant Adhesive SI Gel Clear?
Each case comes with twelve (12) 300-gram cartridges of the clear SI gel instant adhesive.
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Surface Insensitive Instant Adhesive SI Gel is a glue that is easily applied with a thin bond line from a squeeze bottle and cures quickly. This cyanoacrylate adhesive is dispensed from a flexible container; pinch a precise drop or squeeze for a steady bead.Recommended Applications
- Furniture and cabinetry
- Point of purchase displays
Once applied, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Surface Insensitive SI100 typically reaches handling strength in under 25 seconds, with a full cure achieved in 24 hours. This keeps jobs moving quickly and may help improve workplace productivity. Once a full cure is achieved, the glue achieves a strong, durable and lasting bond, with overlap shear strength over 2,000psi.Surface Insensitive Instant Adhesives
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Surface Insensitive Instant Adhesives are designed to give exceptional performance on difficult-to-bond wood, leather, paper and other acidic substrates. These adhesives can bond like substrates or in combination with metal, plastics, rubbers or composite substrates.Understanding Instant Adhesives
Instant adhesives are cyanoacrylate based formulas that are strong, fast-acting glues used in industrial and household applications. In general, they are an acrylic resin that rapidly polymerizes in the presence of moisture, forming long, strong chains, joining the bonded surfaces together.
Cyanoacrylate adhesives should be applied thinly, with pressure put on the bond for a few seconds, to ensure that the reaction proceeds rapidly and a strong bond is formed within a reasonable time.
3M instant adhesives apply right from the container and rapidly reach handling strength at room temperature. Commonly referred to as a super glue, a single drop per square inch can bond many plastics, rubbers, metals, wood and more. An instant adhesive from 3M set a Guinness World Record in 2012 for the strongest glue by lifting an 8.1 metric ton forklift in the air for one hour.Bringing Better Ideas to the Surface through Science and Innovation
