  • Best Practices for 3M Ribbon Sealant PF5423

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      All surfaces to which 3M™ Weatherban™ Ribbon Sealant PF 5423 is applied should be free from dust, dirt, grease or other contamination.

    2. Application

      Temperature of the sealant and surfaces to be bonded should be 40°F (4°C) or above.

      Weatherban PF 5423 is supplied in roll form on a liner. Lay or press the sealant in place, remove and discard the liner. Weatherban PF 5423 has sufficient tack to adhere to most surfaces at temperatures as low as 40°F (4°C).

      Easy hand layup – no special equipment needed.

    3. Clean-Up

      Cleanup can be accomplished with a solvent such as 3M™ Scotch-Grip™ Solvent No. 2 or 3M™ Citrus Base Industrial Cleaner.

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