Scotch-Weld™ 021200-82614 3762PG Hot Melt Adhesive, 1 in Dia x 3 in L, -20 to 150 deg F, 35 sec Application, 24 hr Curing
3M™ hot melt adhesive 3762 is a 100% solids, fast setting hot melt adhesive designed for packaging and shipping applications. It is ideal for bonding corrugated fiberboard cartons, wood, particle board, chipboard and foam. 3M™ hot melt adhesive 3762 is 100% solids, thermoplastic resin formulated to grab and seal quickly to meet the demands of high volume production settings such as packing, woodworking and assembly. These features increase the speed of carton closures and provide adhesion to wood, paperboard, corrugated and other fibrous substrates. It provides strong shear strength, which means your packages stay sealed and components stay bonded under most conditions. A 25 sec open time, along a 1/8 in bead, is sufficient for positioning and adjusting for fit and supports high tempo productivity for packaging, woodworking and applications that involve fibrous materials. The low viscosity prevents stringing even at fast production speeds. Hot melt adhesives also known as glue sticks, are liquefied thermoplastic adhesives available in both low and high temperature versions. Low temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 250 deg F/121 deg C temperatures, which makes them ideal for bonding electronics, plastics, cloth and other heat sensitive materials. High temperature hot melt adhesives are applied at 380 deg F/193 deg C and produce a stronger bond than the low temperature hot melts. Melted adhesive is extruded through a nozzle using a 3M™ hot melt applicator by either pneumatic pressure, a mechanical trigger mechanism or with pressure applied directly on the stick. Different nozzles can be used to apply thin, wide strips or narrow, thicker beads. Hot melt adhesive generally sets quickly, ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the adhesive formulation. In our 3M™ industrial adhesives and tapes division, we apply the science of adhesion to deliver innovative solutions that improve the design and manufacturing processes of companies around the world. In the end, our technologies help customers like you deliver competitive products to the market faster and more efficiently.
