  • Best Practices for 3M Scotch-Weld Epoxy Adhesive DP420 Off-White

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Application

      To use the EPX cartridge system simply insert the duo-pak cartridge into the EPX applicator. 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.

    2. Surface Preparation

      Wipe surface with an isopropyl alcohol soaked swab.* Allow solvent to evaporate before applying adhesive

      Isopropyl Alcohol/Abrade/Isopropyl Alcohol Surface Preparation Wipe surface with an isopropyl alcohol soaked swab, abrade using clean fine grit abrasives, and wipe with an isopropyl alcohol soaked swab.* Then allow solvent to evaporate before applying adhesive

      Wipe surface with a methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) soaked swab, abrade and wipe with a MEK soaked swab.* Allow solvent to evaporate before applying adhesive.

    3. Mixing

      Easy 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.

      When mixing Part A and Part B manually the components must be mixed in the ratio indicated in the typical uncured properties section of this data sheet. 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.

    4. Clean-Up

      Wipe surface with an isopropyl alcohol soaked swab, abrade using clean fine grit abrasives, and wipe with an isopropyl alcohol soaked swab.* Then allow solvent to evaporate before applying adhesive.*Note: When using solvents, extinguish all ignition sources, including pilot lights, and follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use.

Two panels 0.063 in. thick, 4 in. x 7 in. of 2024T-3 clad aluminum were bonded and cut into 1 in. wide samples after 24 hours. The thickness of the bondline was 0.005-0.008 in. All strengths were measured at 73°F (23°C) except where noted.
