3MTM Scotch-WeldTM Hot Melt Adhesives are advanced adhesives to help you improve productivity, lower cost, and minimize waste. Adhesives are 100% solids thermoplastic resins that become fluid when heated and quickly wet the bonding surface.
Reach Expected Results Formulated as a 100% solids adhesive, 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3738 creates a strong bond for a variety of substrates, including foundry sand cores, wood bonding, selected plastics and chipboard. With a high delivery rate, our Hot Melt Adhesive 3738 allows for easy dispensing and is able to sustain high volume applications. Engineered to be a general purpose adhesive, 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3738 provides an extended open time and long bonding range. After the adhesive is dry, our Hot Melt Adhesive 3738 allows time for an adhesive-coated member to be successfully joined and bonded as well as time for application and positioning, ensuring you meet the required results. Recommended Applications 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3738 can be used for a plethora of applications, including woodworking, furniture, automotive, transportation, aerospace, upholstery, point of purchase display, sample boards, military, window, door, building, trophies, novelties, audio components, cabinets, construction, packaging and electronic.

These adhesives are engineered to re-melt after bonding if exposed to high enough temperatures. The advantages of hot melt adhesives is that, unlike mechanical fasteners and sealing tapes, they are virtually invisible between surfaces. Our hot melt adhesives liquefy when heated, quickly fill gaps and wet the bonding surface. When they are applied to a surface, they cool, harden and reach their bond strength within seconds. Due to their quick work-life, you can move assemblies immediately upon application which eliminates the need for clamps, fixturing or additional drying time and energy. Easy to Use, Ready for Success 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive 3738 provides you with a strong, reliable bond and a tried-and-true hot melt glue solution for many kinds of applications. Benefit from our formula that delivers extended open time and a high delivery rate to ensure you successfully meet all of your project goals and requirements.
