  • Best Practices for 3M Scotch-Weld Low Odor Instant Adhesive LO100

    *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 depends on the required bond strength and the environmental aging resistance desired by the user. Typical quick surface preparation would include wiping with a clean solvent (such as isopropyl alcohol), abrading the surface with a clean fine abrasive, and then wiping again with a clean solvent to remove loose particles.

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

      Ensure that parts are clean, dry, and free from oil and grease.

      A Rite-Lok™ Instant Adhesive Activator may be required if there are bonding gaps or porous substrate surfaces, if substrates are low surface energy plastics (e.g., polyethylene, polypropylene) or if substrates have acidic surfaces (e.g., paper, leather).

    2. Application

      Bond speed is typically very fast so ensure that parts are properly aligned before dispensing.

      Product is normally hand applied from the bottle. Apply sparingly to one surface and press parts firmly together until handling strength is achieved. As a general rule, as little cyanoacrylate as possible should be used. Over application will result in slower cure speed and lower bond strength.

    3. Curing

      Low humidity or low temperature conditions will slow down the cure rate.After curing, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Low Odor Instant Adhesive bonds are suitable for use up to about 160°F (71°C).
