  • Best Practices for Dow HM-2500

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Surfaces should be clean and dry before sealant application.

    2. Application

      Dow Corning? HM-2500 Assembly Sealant is from 5 gallon pails or 55 gallon drums with a platen-type hotmelt pump. Application temperature is typically 250° F (120° C). When the melt temperature has been reached, application with automated or hand-assisted dispensing equipment can begin. Once applied to the substrate the parts should be assembled with 15 minutes. Once applied, this product reacts with the atmospheric moisture to form a weather resistant, flexible, silicone sealant. Exposure of opened containers with air should be minimized.
