      • Other - Pressure Pots Stainless steel pressure pots recommended. Non-stainless may be used with plastic liners if dip tube and fittings are changed to plastic or stainless steel., Pumping Equipment: Due to the shear sensitivity of this product pumping is not recommended. If pumping is under consideration please consult with your local 3M sales representative., Filter (Between Gun and Fluid Source):- The use of a 40-mesh stainless steel strainer is suggested to filter any impurities or dried adhesive that may have entered the system., Hoses - Hoses used with pressure pots should be nylon or polyester lined. For gravity feed systems a clear PVC hose with a 0.5" inside diameter is adequate. Avoid using fluid hoses that have previously been used with solvent.

    Business Information
    Shelf Life Details Best storage temperature is 60-80°F (15-27°C). Higher temperatures reduce normal storage life. Lower temperatures can cause increased viscosity of a temporary nature. This water-based adhesive will become unusable with prolonged storage below 40°F (4°C). Rotate stock on a “first in, first out” basis. When stored at recommended temperature in the original, unopened container, this product has a shelf life of 15 months from date of shipment.

  • Best Practices for 3M Insulation Adhesive 49

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Surfaces must be clean, dry and dust free. Remove all dirt, dust, oil, grease, wax, loose paint, etc. to ensure proper adhesion.

    2. Application

      Adhesive may be applied by spray, brush or paint roller. Apply a uniform, generous coat of adhesive to one of the surfaces to be bonded (porous surface preferred.) Very porous material may require more than one coat. (Allow adhesive to dry completely between coats).

    3. Curing

      Allow adhesive to dry until the surface becomes tacky. The insulation may then be bonded using hand pressure. Bonded parts may be handled immediately.

    4. Clean-Up

      Wet adhesive may be removed using soapy water. For dry adhesive removal, use 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Solvent No. 3 (Methyl Ethyl Ketone), or 3M™ Citrus Base Cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.*

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