    Business Information
    Shelf Life Details Best storage temperature is 60-80°F (15-27°C). Higher temperatures reduce normal storage life. Lower temperatures cause increased viscosity of a temporary nature. This water-dispersed adhesive will become unusable with prolonged storage below 40°F (4°C). Rotate stock on a “first in, first out” basis. Protect from freezing. When stored at the recommended temperature in the original, unopened container, this product has a shelf life of 12 months from date of shipment.

    Not Good For
    Don't Use For Air operated piston pumps
    Don't Use With Exterior bare metal surfaces, Unless metal surfaces are completely dried by force drying and rotected from moisture.
  • Best Practices for 3M 100

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Use only on clean, dry surfaces. Contamination of surfaces with oil, grease or release agents will prevent good, strong bonds.

    2. Application

      Adhesive does not require agitation before use. Adjust the spray equipment to give a fine, mist-like spray pattern. Spray a uniform, light coat of adhesive to both surfaces holding spray applicator 10-15 inches from surface.

    3. Curing

      The adhesive activates sufficiently to permit making foam/foam bonds within 15 seconds after application. Bonds of foam or fabric to smooth, nonporous surfaces such as plastic or metal will require longer activation times. Bonds may be made up to 20 minutes after application depending on ambient temperature and humidity conditions. For foam bonding and foam fabrication, pressure sufficient to compress the foam should be applied to the bond line by manual or mechanical methods. Bond the adhesive coated surfaces with sufficient pressure to ensure good contact across the entire adhesive bond line.

    4. Clean-Up

      Wet adhesive may be removed with water containing a small amount of detergent.* Dry adhesive may be removed with a combination of 3M™ Citrus Base Cleaner or equivalent and mechanical systems such as wire brushing or 3M™ Scotch Brite™ pads.** Dry adhesive cannot be removed from porous surfaces such as foams or fabrics. Flush the adhesive wetted surfaces of spray equipment with water containing a small amount of detergent.* Follow with a flush of clean water.

      *Cleaning Solution: One pint of detergent to five gallons of water.

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