    Business Information
    Shelf Life Details Best storage temperature is 60-70°F (16-27°C). Continuous exposure to higher temperatures may cause some increase in viscosity. Quality is not affected until the adhesives becomes thickened so that it is difficult or impossible to spread. 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Neoprene Contact Adhesive 10 will not freeze, but continuous exposure to low temperature will cause a considerable increase in viscosity. After storage at low temperatures and before using, the adhesive must be thawed and stirred vigorously until the entire container regains its original viscosity. The thawing process should be done at approximately room temperatures, never at elevated temperatures. Several days may be required for thawing – particularly with larger containers. Rotate stock on a “first in-first out” basis. When stored at the recommended conditions in the original, unopened container this product has a shelf life of 15 months.

  • Best Practices for 3M 10

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      For best results, all surfaces to be bonded should be dry and free from dirt, dust, oil, loose paint, wax, grease, etc.

      Oil, grease and other contaminants can be removed by wiping with a solvent such as methyl ethyl ketone.

      If used for decorative laminate, laminate should have reached moisture equilibrium for the shop conditions.

    2. Application

      Stir thoroughly before using. Apply adhesive generously in a uniform film on both surfaces with either a fiber or animal hair brush, or pour and spread with paint roller (solvent resistant texturing type). Porous surfaces may require 2 coats of adhesive. A glossy film when completely dry indicates adequate adhesive. Dull spots after drying indicate not enough adhesive.

      These spots must have another coat. Allow to dry until adhesive is no longer tacky (5-10 minutes). Position surfaces carefully before assembly. No adjustment is possible after contact. Spacers such as dowels or strips of laminate, may be used to prevent premature adhesive/adhesive contact and bonding. Slide out the spacers and apply uniform pressure, working toward the edges. A 3 in. roller used with maximum body pressure should be used to help ensure adequate contact and bonding, especially on the edges. Bonded assemblies can be machined, trimmed or finished immediately after bonding.

    3. Curing

      Drying time depends on temperature, humidity, air movement and porosity of materials bonded.

    4. Clean-Up

      Excess adhesive may be removed with a solvent such as methyl ethyl ketone.*

      *When using solvents, extinguish all ignition sources, including pilot lights, and follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use.
