3M tapes and adhesives, available in Canada through Adheco, are strong enough to replace gaskets in many applications. The company’s gasket attachment products and solutions offer a fluid-tight seal, and enable users to create custom die-cut gaskets for complex metal shapes. Whether the customer requires high strength, ease of application or temperature and solvent resistance, 3M has the solution in its comprehensive lineup.
3M’s lineup includes Scotch-Weld High Temperature Gasket Maker GM10, a red, rigid, one-component anaerobic sealant formulated to replace pre-cut gaskets, o-rings or used as form-in-place gaskets. This adhesive cures at room temperature and can seal rigid assemblies of any shape or size. In addition, it can withstand temperatures up to 204 degrees C (400 degrees F). Scotch-Weld Gasket Maker GM18 offers the same advantages; however, this adhesive can withstand temperatures up to 148 degrees C (300 degrees F). These products offer excellent temperature and solvent resistance, ease of application, and a good rate of strength build.
In addition to Scotch-Weld High Temperature Gasket Makers, 3M offers several other technologies commonly used in gasket attachment applications. These include VHB Tapes, Scotch-Weld Instant Adhesives, adhesive transfer tapes, double-coated tapes and spray adhesives. These are all available through bonding and surface finishing expert Adheco, as part of its non-structural adhesives offering.
