  • Best Practices for 3M ES2000

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      For best adhesion, oxide films, oils, dust, mold release agents and all other surface contaminants must be completely removed.

    2. Application

      After loading the Duo-Pak cartridge into the EPX applicator, remove the cartridge cap and apply the nozzle to the cartridge. To ensure adequate mixing and to minimize air entrapment in the nozzle, point the nozzle end of the loaded Duo-Pak cartridge in a vertical upward position and slowly expel sealant from the cartridge into the nozzle. Once sealant has reached the tip of the nozzle, expel sealant until no air bubbles are present. Apply sealant to the desired surface/edge using desired position. Properly applied sealant should be transparent with minimal air entrapment.

    3. Mixing

      Hand mixing is not recommended

    4. Clean-Up

      Excess uncured sealant can be removed by wiping with solvent and should be allowed to cure before disposal. Unmixed sealant should be handled and stored per the MSDS recommendation. Mixed sealant that has cured does not require special waste handling procedures. Dispose of gloves, tape and other items containing cured sealant accordingly. Gloves and tools that have been in contact with any unmixed sealant should be treated and disposed of per the MSDS recommendation. Wash hands with soap and water
