  • Best Practices for 3M Adhesive Sealant 560

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Surfaces to be sealed or bonded should be clean and dry. Surfaces should be free from grease, mold release, oil, water/condensation, and other contaminates that may affect the adhesion of the sealant. Abrading with 180 to 220 grit abrasive followed by a solvent wipe will improve the bond strength. Suitable solvents include 3M™ Adhesive Remover or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK)*.

      *When using solvents, use in a well ventilated area. Extinguish all sources of ignition in the work area and observe product directions for use and precautionary measures.

    2. Application

      Loading the applicator gun: make sure the applicator is set up with correct plunger attachment for cartridge or sausage pack.

      Cartridge: Puncture seal in nozzle and remove the pull-tab seal at the bottom of the cartridge. Load into applicator and fix retaining ring (if applicable). Assemble the nozzle (if applicable) and cut to desired size and shape.

      Sausage Pack: Make a 1" slit close to the crimp on one end of the sausage pack. Load the sausage pack into the applicator barrel (slit side out). Place the rounded end of the supplied sausage nozzle onto the slit end of the sausage package and fix with retaining ring. Cut nozzle to desired size and shape.

      Product should be used within 24 hours after seal is punctured. Dispense product with the nozzle tip in contact with the substrate to insure good gap filling. Bonding must occur within the first 50% of published skin time.

      Do not apply polyurethane sealants and adhesive sealants on frozen nor wet surfaces. Do not apply over silicone nor in the presence of curing silicone nor hybrid products. Avoid contact with alcohol and solvents during curing. Sealant can be tooled immediately after applying to give desired appearance.

    3. Clean-Up

      While sealant is still soft, cleaning can be done with the same solvents used for surface preparation. Avoid cleaning with alcohol as it will interfere with the curing process. If sealant is already cured, removal is done mechanically with razor knife, piano wire, sanding or 3M™ Scotch-Brite™ Molding adhesive and Stripe Removal Disc.
