- Permanently elastic to allow joint movement
- 50-60 minute skin time; paintable, once skin forms
- Good UV resistance
- One component, moisture-curing sealant simplifies production
- Bonds dissimilar materials for increased design flexibility
- Gap filling capability
- Features mid-range Shore A hardness
What is 3M™ Polyurethane Adhesive Sealant 560, White, 400 mL Sausage Pack used for?
This product is a one-component moisture-curing adhesive sealant that can be used to bond and seal a wide range of materials.
Is this adhesive sealant suitable for outdoor use?
Yes! 3M™ Polyurethane Adhesive Sealant 560 has excellent weathering resistance and can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.
How long does it take to cure/dry?
The curing time depends on environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, etc. Generally speaking, the sealant will be tack-free within approximately two hours after application. Full cure generally occurs within seven days.
Do I need any special tools or equipment to apply this adhesive sealant?
Not really – you just need a standard caulking gun (not included). Simply attach the sausage pack to the end of your caulking gun and apply with steady pressure following typical caulk/sealant application practices.
Can I paint over this product once it's fully cured?
.: Yes! Once completely cured (typically after seven days), this polyurethane-based adhesive-sealant can accept most types of paints without affecting its performance/adhesion properties.
Engineered for high performance, 3M™ Polyurethane Adhesive Sealant 560 is a single-component, moisture-curing polyurethane sealant used to bond a wide variety of materials, including plastics, fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP), sheet molding compound (SMC), aluminum, steel, coated metal and wood. It exhibits high tensile strength, good UV resistance, mid-range Shore A Hardness and high modulus in a wide variety of extreme service environments. Available in cartridge, sausage pack and drum volumes to meet your application needs.Recommended Applications
- Panel bonding
- Attaching exterior panels and metal framework
- Vehicle flooring attachment
- Transportation manufacturing (bus, rail, truck, trailer)
- Replacement of mechanical fasteners in many situations
3M™ Polyurethane Adhesive Sealant 560 offers an alternative to mechanical fasteners and can replace rivets in some applications. It will bond dissimilar substrates and a wide selection of materials. This adhesive will perform in temperatures ranging from -40°F/-40°C to 194°F/90°C. Once skin forms (50-60 minutes), the sealant can be painted to improve the final finish.Understanding Polyurethane Sealants
Polyurethane sealants provide strong, flexible durable elastomeric bonds that seal against the elements. These sealants excel in challenging industrial, transportation and construction applications. Polyurethane sealants are available in a wide variety of Shore A hardness, open time and colors to meet many application needs.
