  • Best Practices for 3M Scotch-Weld Epoxy Adhesive DP100 Clear

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      For optimum strength structural bonds, paint, oxide films, oils, dust, mold release agents and all other surface contaminants must be completely removed. However, the amount of surface preparation directly depends on the required bond strength and the environmental aging resistance desired by the user. The following cleaning methods are suggested for common surfaces: Steel:1. Wipe free of dust with oil-free solvent such as acetone or isopropyl alcohol. 2. Sandblast or abrade using clean fine grit abrasives.3. Wipe again with solvent to remove loose particles.4. If a primer is used, it should be applied within 4 hours after surface preparation. Aluminum:1. Acid Etch: Place panels in the following solution for 10 minutes at 150°F ± 5°F (66°C ± 2°C). Sodium Dichromate 4.1 - 4.9 oz./gallon Sulfuric Acid, 66°Be 38.5 - 41.5 oz./gallon 2024-T3 aluminum (dissolved) 0.2 oz./gallon minimum Tap Water as needed to balance 2. Rinse: Rinse panels in clear running tap water.3. Dry: Air dry 15 minutes and force dry 10 minutes at 150°F ± 10°F (66°C ± 5°C). 4. If primer is to be used, it should be applied within 4 hours after surface preparation. 5. Option 2: Degrease with an industrial solvent such as MEK*

      abrade with ScotchBrite™ 7447 abrasive (or sandpaper of approximately 180 grit) and wipe again with solvent*. Plastics/Rubber: 1. Wipe with isopropyl alcohol.* 2. Abrade using fine grit abrasives. 3. Wipe with isopropyl alcohol.* *Note: When using solvents, extinguish all ignition sources and follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use.

    2. Application

      For small or intermittent applications the 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ EPX™ applicator is a convenient method of application. For larger applications these adhesives may be applied by use of flow equipment. 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ DP100 and DP100 NS Adhesives are suppled in a dual syringe plastic Duo-Pak cartridge as part of the 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ EPX™ Applicator system.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. For Duo-Pak Cartridges - 200/400 ml: Directions for Use: While holding cartridge in an upright position, remove insert from Duo-Pak cartridge by unscrewing plastic nut. Detach metal removal disc from insert to free plastic nut for nozzle attachment. Clear orifices if necessary Attach mixing nozzle and secure with plastic nut. Place cartridge into EPX Applicator. Dispense a small quantity of adhesive to assure both components are dispensing equally. Apply adhesive to clean surfaces, join parts, secure until set up (20 minutes @ 75°F [24°C

      For maximum bond strength apply adhesive evenly to both surfaces to be joined, Application to the substrates should be make within 5 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 24-48 hours @ 75°F (24°C).

    3. Mixing

      Easy mixing

      Two-part meter/mixing/dispensing equipment is available for intermittent or production line use. These systems may be desirable because of their variable shot size and flow rate characteristics and are adaptable to many applications.

    4. Clean-Up

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