Hints & Tips

Learn how easy it is to use the 3M™ Dynamic Mixing System and learn some tips from the professionals.

Setup

Turn air regulator down to zero before every use (fully counter -clockwise) If the cartridge mixing rod pops out the top of the cartridge, push it back down (from the top) until you hear a 'click' When loading a cartridge, briefly squeeze the trigger to help seat the mixing rod in the drive socket Once setup, open the air regulator (clockwise) to the recommended setting before applying material.

Application

3M Dynamic Mixing System Application 1 3M Dynamic Mixing System Application 2 3M Dynamic Mixing System Application 3
Don't drop the bead into a ball of filler. This introduces air which can result in pinholes Don't apply zig-zags of filler. This introduces air which can result in pinholes Apply tight beads of filler, keeping the nozzle submerged. This prevents air being introduced  

 

Spreading

3M Dynamic Mixing System Application 3
Build in thin layers. This maximizes work time, minimizes trapped air and reduces overbuilding which can result in waste To extend work time apply smaller beads, spread immediately and build in layers. Work in small sections.

Equalize a cartridge until a consistent color is achieved To extend nozzle work time, extrude a small amount of filler onto a disposable surface before full cure occurs Keep the nozzle outlet clean during dispensing to avoid a surface blemish.
