3M DP420 Epoxy Adhesive is supplied in duo-pak cartridges. The sizes range from 37 ml, 200 ml and 400 ml configurations. For optimal performance, mixing the proper ratio needs to be completed prior to application. Apply the adhesive to a dry, clean surface. Both the chemistry and surface structure of the two components being bonded play a significant role in determining the strength of the bond. Strength of the adhesive after 24 hours at room temperature is 4500 psi. Adhesive strength when heated for 60 minutes at 60°C is 4700 psi. For more information, contact Krayden and a technical representative will assist in answering any questions that you may have.
Before handling, it is strongly recommended to read the 3M DP420 MSDS to understand the safety precautions of the material.
