    Shelf Life Details Store product at 60-80°F (16-27°C) for maximum storage life. Higher temperatures reduce normal storage life. Lower temperatures cause increased viscosity of a temporary nature. Product will become unusable with prolonged storage under 40°F (4°C). Protect from freezing. Rotate stock on a “first-in, first-out” basis. When stored at recommended temperatures in original, unopened containers, this product has a shelf life of 15 months from date of 3M shipment.

  • Best Practices for 3M Sealant 606NF

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      To obtain maximum sealing efficiency, the surface to which the sealer is applied must be clean, free of moisture and loose particles. Masonry surfaces should be brushed free of loose dust. If necessary, metal surfaces should be wiped with solvent such as 3M™ Scotch-Grip™ No. 3 Solvent followed by wiping with a clean, dry cloth.*

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

    2. Application

      3M™Weatherban™ Acrylic Sealant 606-NF applies easily, can be painted over within 20-30 minutes after application and dries to a tough, flexible, rubber-like bead. When dry, it resists water, vibration, heat, cold, and adheres well to many bare metal, primed metal and painted surfaces. Ideal for sealing many interior or exterior joints and can be smoothed to a feather edge using a wet spatula. Material will form a plug in the nozzle of partly used cartridges. Plug is easily removed allowing usage of remaining material.

    3. Curing

      At 75°F (24°C) and 50% relative humidity, will generally dry “tack-free” to the touch in less than one-half hour. Drying time will vary with atmospheric conditions and joint design.

    4. Clean-Up

      Wet sealant can be readily cleaned up with water. For removal of dried sealer from tools and equipment, the use of solvent such as 3M™ Scotch-Grip™ Solvent No. 2 is suggested.* Dried excess sealant from application sites may be removed by scraping with a sharp spatula followed by wiping with a cloth or hot, soapy water and a coarse cloth.
