  • Best Practices for 3M TS230

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

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

    2. Curing

      The cure rate will vary depending on air temperature, relative humidity, substrate type and bond line thickness. Cure rate is more rapid on wood (moisture-rich substrate) than on plastic.

    3. Clean-Up

      Allow product to solidify. Remove uncured waxy material (usually within the first 20 minutes after application) by scraping with a putty knife or similar tool. For cured material, remove by cutting or sanding. Do not use heat or flame to remove adhesive.

Set Time Test Methods
Set Time Test Method
Long
2.50 min The minimum amount of time required between when the bond is made and when it will support a 5 psi tensile load., Open times and set times are based on a room temperature environment. High temperatures will lengthen open times and set times while lower environmental temperatures will shorten open times and set times.
Viscosity Test Methods
Viscosity Test Method Temperature
9,000 cPs Measured on Brookfield viscometer with Thermosel using spindle #27. 121°C
Extrudable
Work / Pot Time Test Methods
Work / Pot Time Test Method
Long
4.00 min The bonding range of a 1/8" bead of molten adhesive on a non-metallic substrate., Open times and set times are based on a room temperature environment. High temperatures will lengthen open times and set times while lower environmental temperatures will shorten open times and set times.
