3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3762 is a 100% is an economical, fast-setting resin solid hot melt adhesive. It's designed for general purpose applications as well as manual and corrugated carton sealing and general packaging. When heated to its specified melt point this adhesive forms an aggressive hot tack that bonds to handling strength in seconds to help maintain high-tempo productivity.

Keep Production Flowing 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3762 is 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 and low peel strength, which means your packages stay sealed and components stay bonded under most conditions. Economical and Safe A 30 second open time, along a 1/8" bead, is sufficient for positioning and adjusting for fit and supports high-tempo productivity for packaging, woodworking, and applications that involve fibrous materials. We manufacture this product using 100% solids, thermoplastic resin for use with our 3M™ Hot Melt Applicators. As a low-volatile-organic (VOC) compound, this adhesive produces minimal odor when heated and helps support a comfortable work environment. Recommended Applications General packaging Recouperage Repacking chipboard Point-of-Purchase Beadboard Displays Woodworking Trade exhibits Foam inserts Craft applications Bonding waxed surfaces The Hot Melt Advantage Hot-melt adhesive applicators, commonly called “glue guns” are tools used to apply liquefied thermoplastic adhesives and are available in low and high-temperature versions. Low-temperature adhesive applicators operate at approximately 250ºF/ 121ºC and are beneficial when bonding heat sensitive materials such as electronics, plastics, and cloth. High-temperature applicators operate at a minimal temperature of approximately 380ºF/ 193ºC. The applicator creates a flow of adhesive when a solidified adhesive stick is fed into the heat chamber, where it is melted using a fixed-temperature heating element. The molten adhesive is then extruded through a nozzle by either pneumatic pressure, a mechanical trigger mechanism, or with pressure applied directly on the stick. Nozzles can be changed to dispense adhesive
