  • Best Practices for 3M DP460

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Surface preparations were used for substrates described in this Technical Data Sheet.

    2. Application

      To use the 37 ml cartridge 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.

    3. Mixing

      If simultaneous mixing of Part A and Part B is desired, attach the EPX mixing nozzle to the duo-pak cartridge and begin dispensing the adhesive. With the 200 ml and 400 ml cartridges, the nozzle must be attached before dispensing any material to prevent unmixed adhesive from getting into the applicator cartridge holder. A small quantity of material should be discarded until uniform color, consistency of product and even flow is evident. When mixing Part A and Part B manually, the components must be mixed in the ratio indicated in the typical uncured properties section. Complete mixing of the two components is required to obtain optimum properties. Two-part mixing/proportioning/dispensing equipment is available for intermittent or production line use. These systems are ideal for line uses because of their variable shot size and flow rate characteristics and are adaptable to most applications.
