    Shelf Life Details Shelf life is indicated by the “Use Before” date found on the product label. For best results, Dow Corning RTV adhesives should be stored at or below 25°C (77°F). Special precautions must be taken to prevent moisture from contacting these materials. Containers should be kept tightly closed with head or air space minimized. Partially filled containers should be purged with dry air or other gases, such as nitrogen.
    Shelf Life Temperature (°F) 77

  • Best Practices for Dow Q3-6093 RTV Adhesive Kit

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      All surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned and/or degreased with Dow Corning® brand OS Fluids, naphtha, mineral spirits, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) or other suitable solvent. Solvents such as acetone or isopropyl alcohol (IPA) do not tend to remove oils well, and any oils remaining on the surface may interfere with adhesion. Light surface abrasion is recommended whenever possible, because it promotes good cleaning and increases the surface area for bonding. A final surface wipe with acetone or IPA is also useful. Some cleaning techniques may provide better results than others

      users should determine the best techniques for their particular applications.

    2. Mixing

      Upon standing, some filler may settle to the bottom of the liquid containers after several weeks. To ensure a uniform product mix, the material in each container should be thoroughly mixed prior to use. Two-part materials should be mixed in the proper ratio (1:1 or 10:1) either by weight or volume. The presence of light colored streaks or marbling indicates inadequate mixing.

    3. Deairing/Degassing

      Automated airless dispense equipment can be used to reduce or avoid the need to de-air. If de-airing is required to reduce voids in the cured elastomer, consider a vacuum de-air schedule of >28 inches Hg for 10 minutes or until bubbling subsides.
