    Business Information
    Shelf Life Details Best storage temperature is 60-80°F (16-27°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, these products have a shelf life of 15 months from date of shipment.

  • Best Practices for 3M 2000NF

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Surfaces must be clean, dry and dust free.

    2. Application

      Use a plural nozzle, external mix spray applicator to mix adhesive with activator to achieve proper mix of Fastbond contact adhesive 2000-NF with spray activator #1. (Refer to Application Equipment Suggestions above for additional information about spray equipment.) Spray apply a uniform coat of mixed adhesive to both surfaces. (See coverage section.) One coat should usually be sufficient for both surfaces. Be sure to overlap the spray pattern slightly with each pass of the spray applicator to ensure complete activation of adhesive and uniform coverage. A uniform dull film indicates sufficient mixture of Fastbond contact adhesive 2000-NF with spray activator #1.

    3. Clean-Up

      Work Surface: If adhesive has not activated, clean surfaces with water or with a small amount of liquid detergent followed with a cleaner such as 3M™ Citrus Base Cleaner or equivalent. Dried, activated adhesive may be cleaned with a combination of cleaner and mechanical systems such as wire brushing.

      Spray Equipment: Flush adhesive portion of spray equipment with cold water containing a small amount of detergent* followed by a flush with clean water. The activator portion of spray equipment should be flushed with clean water (no detergent).
