3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy Adhesive DP100 is a two-part, rigid epoxy adhesive offering a fast cure and machinability. It is a fast-setting epoxy that cures at room temperature to form a rigid bond. Has low viscosity for easy dispensing and leveling.
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy Adhesive DP100 is a high-flow, versatile structural adhesive for general purpose bonding. Its low viscosity, clear formulation works on a variety of substrates including metals, ceramics, concrete, and wood. With a high shear strength it delivers strong, rigid performance, making it ideal for multiple applications in the electrical, general industrial, construction, and consumer goods industries. Epoxy adhesives, including 5 minute epoxy are part of the class of adhesives called "structural adhesives," which include polyurethane, acrylic, cyanoacrylate, and others. Epoxies are formulated as liquid-reactive polymers that undergo a chemical reaction when mixed and then cure to form a solid plastic material. Once the two parts are mixed in their specified ratio, they begin the curing process and offer a limited working time where the adhesive can be applied and the two surfaces positioned as needed. This work life lasts anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. These structural adhesives provide high shear and peel strengths, depending on the formula, and better heat and chemical resistance than other common adhesives. In general, epoxy adhesives have the highest overall strength and offer the best performance and most resistance to high temperatures, solvents, and outdoor weathering.
