  • Best Practices for 3M 3764

    *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

    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.
