Instant adhesives are cyanoacrylates and as the name suggests, they cure very rapidly. Instant adhesives are one-part products that cure by reacting with moisture. These reactions proceed so quickly that they require very little clamping time, reaching handling strength in a matter of seconds.
Instant adhesives are designed for processes with high strength requirements for a small bond area, tight-fitting joints, and a need for rapid curing. Different formulations are able to bond to many different materials including metals, leather, paper, elastomers, engineered plastics and some LSE plastics.
3M offers both traditional high-heat one-part epoxies and newer formulations that cure at relatively lower temperatures. Explore more options to find the best one for your product and process.
