Adhere Distributors

September 10, 2013






Adhere Distributors is having an OPEN HOUSE!

This Friday, September 13, from 11:30am to 2:30pm, were inviting all of our customers and friends to come and join us for an open house to show off our new facilities at 6 Stevenson Road.

In February of 2012 we made the big move from our old location to our brand new, larger location one block north at 6 Stevenson Road and now we want to show it to all of you.  There will be tours, demonstrations, refreshments and 'Thank-You-goodies' for all who attend.

Our entire staff will be there to welcome you and show you what we have to offer.  Its the perfect opportunity to drop in and meet us, see our new office, get a tour, and meet some of our reps.

Were proud of our new home and were proud of the service weve provided to our customers for 27 years.  Were looking forward to seeing all of you!

Find us on the web, or visit Adhere Distributors in person.



SAP Software From 3M

In October 2013, 3M will be implementing SAP software to standardize their business processes and provide an improved customer experience.  Please read the important notice below for details of how their implementation process will take place.

Key 3M Canada dates:

  • New system implementation: September 27 October 1, 2013;
  • 3M will not make shipments or create invoices during this period;
  • 3M customers will not be able to place orders during this time period;
  • Last date for taking orders: September 20, 2013;
  • Last shipment date:
    September 27, 2013;
  • Go Live date:
    October 1, 2013;
  • 3M customers can resume placing regular orders:
    October 7, 2013.

As a result of 3Ms SAP implementation, there may be delivery interruptions during this time.  To avoid this, Adhere Distributors has estimated our customers usage of 3M products over this two week order/shipment blackout period and have ordered what we trust will be adequate 3M inventory levels to see us through the blackout period.

While we believe we have taken every precaution to ensure an un-interrupted flow of 3M products for your business, we would still like to caution our customers of the possibility, however remote, of a supply interruption.  We strongly recommend, therefore, that you order additional inventory of any 3M products critical to your manufacturing or business operations prior to the ordering deadlines.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.


New 2-Component Adhesive Sealant

When it comes to industrial adhesives, curing time is an important factor in production efficiency; the slower the cure, the more down time in production. With that in mind, 3M has developed a new, 2-component, polyurethane adhesive with a super fast curing time to reduce down time, improve efficiency and save you money.

This 2-component system consists of the adhesive sealant, 550FC, plus an accelerator, AC-61.  With a guaranteed curing rate reaching handling strength in less than one hour, you can move production forward much faster than with other, slower curing adhesives.  Plus, with an elongation at break of 250%, this product provides a flexible and strong bond.

The secret of the faster curing time is full curing from the centre of the bondline rather than from the exterior towards the centre.  Moisture and humidity do not affect the ability of this system to cure, thereby attaining handling strength much faster than single-component polyurethane adhesives.  3Ms 2-component Adhesive sealant system is effective for bonding or sealing a number of materials, including metals, glass, fibre glass, gel coat, wood, composites and plastics. This adhesive is excellent for wide number of applications, such as,

  • joining similar or dissimilar materials
  • sealing seams and exposed joints
  • bonding window glass
  • sealing
  • caulking
  • waterproofing a number of marine items above and below the water line

3Ms 2-component Adhesive sealant system is also simple to use. Adhesive and accelerator come in easy to handle sausage packs: just load the packs in the 400A-2K hand held applicator, attach the mixing nozzle and pull the trigger. The mixed adhesive dispenses quickly and smoothly with no mess. If your project involves a larger area, adhesive 550FC and accelerator AC-61 are available in bulk volumes along with a special dispensing and mixing applicator. Reagardless of the size of the job, 3Ms 2-component Adhesive Sealant system will speed up your process and provide you with a strong, flexible, waterproof seal that you can count on.
