    3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy Adhesive DP460 is a toughened, two-part epoxy adhesive with a 2:1 mix ratio, 60 minute work life and handling strength in approximately four hours. This product provides a strong, durable bond to many surfaces.

    When using a Duo-Pak (DP) size adhesive, rely on 3M dispensing equipment for convenient and accurate metering, mixing and dispensing. High Peel and Shear Strength for Strong Bonds in Critical Applications Our 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy Adhesive DP460 exhibits excellent shear and peel strength along with good impact durability. It bonds to many surfaces, such as ceramics, metals, glass, wood and some plastics. When it comes to preparation and application, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy Adhesive DP460 is straightforward and easy-to-use. Simply mix the components with a 2:1 by volume mix ratio and then apply according to the instructions to achieve a strong, long-lasting bond. The components are easy to mix and the 60 minute work life means users have ample time to re-position the bonding surfaces before a durable, long-lasting bond is achieved. For easier mixing and application, use 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ EPX™ Plus II applicators with a duo-pak cartridge. UL-HB Certified, ASTM E162, ASTM E662, Bombardier SMP 800C, Boeing BSS 7239. Recommended Applications High impact resistance for sporting goods Transportation applications, such as rail and automotive Military and aerospace applications High temperature resistance applications Understanding Epoxy Adhesives Epoxy adhesives 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. Epoxy adhesive (often referred to as epoxy glue) is widely used in building and home construction; aircraft and automobile manufacturing; bicycle, boat, golf clubs, ski and snowboard assembly as well as a host of home use and other applications. It is used virtually anywhere high-strength bonds are needed along with resistance to environmental conditions. These adhesives are popular for their ease of use, mechanical strength and chemical resistance. Formulations can be created to make epoxy for plastic flexible or epoxy for metal rigid, epoxy resin transparent or opaque, quick setting or slow setting. The versatility with which these adhesives can be formulated helps meet almost any requirement for bonding wood, metal, glass, stone and various plastics.
