  • Best Practices for 3M 101 Marine Sealant (06510)

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Because of the many waxes, coatings, and sealants used in the marine industry it is very important to clean all surfaces to be bonded before applying 3MTM Marine Sealant 101. Recommended procedures include cleaning with 3M General Purpose adhesive Cleaner, P.N. 08984.

      * When using solvents, extinguish all sources of ignition in the immediate work area and observe proper precautionary measures for handling such materials.

    2. Application

      Abrading the surfaces with a fine grade abrasive will enhance bond strength. Apply 101 to the seam or part to be bonded. Position parts. Tool squeeze out to desired appearance.

    3. Clean-Up

      Remove excess with 3MTM General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner, P.N. 08984

      For cleaning 3MTM Marine Sealant 101 before it is cured, use a dry cloth to remove the majority, followed by a cloth damp with 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner, toluene, acetone, or other good cleaning solvent.

      Cured 101 can be removed mechanically with a knife, razor blade, piano wire or by sanding.
