  • Best Practices for 3M 3762

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Surfacesmust be clean, dry and dust free. Wipe with a solvent such as isopropyl alcohol for plastic substrates to aid in removing oil and dirt.* *Note: When using solvents, extinguish all ignition sources, including pilot lights, and follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use.

    2. Application

      3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives are designed for application with a 3M™ Hot Melt Applicators. Read and follow the precautions and directions for use in the user’s manual before operating the applicator. 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesives are applied at 350-385°F, except the Low Melt (LM) series which are designed to be applied at 250-275°F. LM series are adhesives designed for lower temperature application but still yield longlasting bonds.
