  • Best Practices for 3M DP110 Translucent

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      For high strength structural bonds, paint, oxide films, oils, dust, mold release agents and all other surface contaminants must be completely removed from substrate to be bonded. However, the amount of surface preparation necessary directly depends on the user’s required bond strength, environmental aging resistance and economic practicalities.

      See Vendor Technical Data Sheet for more information

    2. Application

      To use, simply insert the duo-pak cartridge into the EPX applicator and start the plunger into the cylinders using light pressure on the trigger. Next, remove the duo-pak cartridge cap and expel a small amount of adhesive to be sure both sides of the duo-pak cartridge are flowing evenly and freely.

      Application to the substrates should be made within 8 minutes. Larger quantities and/or higher temperatures will reduce this working time.

      Join the adhesive coated surfaces and allow to cure at 60°F (16°C) or above until completely firm. Heat up to 200°F (93°C), will speed curing. These products will fully cure in 48 hours @ 75°F (24°C).

      Keep parts from moving during cure. Contact pressure necessary. Maximum shear strength is obtained with a 3-5 mil bond line.

    3. Mixing

      If automatic mixing of Part A and Part B is desired, attach the EPX mixing nozzle to the duo-pak cartridge and begin dispensing the adhesive. For hand mixing, expel the desired amount of adhesive and mix thoroughly. Mix approximately 15 seconds after a uniform color is obtained.

      Mix thoroughly by weight or volume in the proportions specified on the product label or in the uncured properties section. Mix approximately 15 seconds after a uniform color is obtained.

    4. Clean-Up

      Excess uncured adhesive can be cleaned up with ketone type solvents.*

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