Core Technology-Adhesives

As tilt-up construction continues to expand, so does the demand for penetration free floors. 3M, a pioneer in aerosol adhesive technology, combined its adhesive with a contractor friendly delivery system in its 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Cylinder adhesive line that allows rustification strips, form liners, and shoe plates to be held in place with adhesive instead of drilling holes or nailing into the slab. Aerosol cans are also available to meet these needs. There are several formulations available:

  • High heat resistance
  • High moisture resistance
  • Low VOC specifically developed to meet California’s environmental standards
  • Formulations that do not degrade polystyrene foam
  • Methylene Chloride free

In addition to adhesives, 3M offers a complete portfolio of other Tilt-up essentials. 3M™ Adhesive Remover, Scotch-Brite™ Hand pads and Bristle discs for cleaning concrete, a complete line of 3M™ Fire Barrier products to meet fire codes, 3M™ Particulate Respirators, 3M™ Protective Eyewear and Hearing protection, 3M™ Sealants, 3M™ Duct Tape, and 3M™ Masking Tape.

3M products are offered in the United States and other countries through an extensive distributor network. Included with this is access to a highly skilled staff of product developers, technical support, and experienced sales professionals.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
