Hard to bond materials used to be a common challenge for engineers, until 3M created specialist bonding solutions for hard-to-bond substrates, including foam panels (EPS), oily metals, low-surface-energy plastics (LSE), and rubber.
At 3M, our engineers understand the science behind adhesion to low-surface energy substrates, and have documented their findings in this free whitepaper.
A small section was cut away on a polyethylene kayak, making a space for a camera. A transparent polycarbonate window was bonded to the kayak using 3M Scotch-Weld™ Structural Plastic Adhesive. The camera was sealed inside, and filmed the underwater action.
