  • Best Practices for 3M 6111

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Surfaces must be clean, dry and dust free. Wiping with a solvent such as isopropyl alcohol for plastic substrates and 3M™ Scotch-Grip™ Solvent No. 3 or MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) for metal will aid in removing oil and dirt.

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

    2. Application

      3M™ Spray-Bond Adhesive is designed for spray application using either a hand held applicator or a “bulk” hot melt system designed for use with a sprayable hot melt adhesive.

    3. Curing

      After bond is made, there is immediate strength and no clamping is necessary.
