Description
3M™ 5200 is a one-part moisture curing, no-shrinking caulk-gun applied polyurethane adhesive/sealant that delivers strong, flexible bonds. 3M™ 5200 does not require a primer on most materials, but it adheres very well to wood, cured epoxy-coated surfaces, fiberglass laminates, and most plastics except polypropylene and polyethylene. Its flexibility allows for dissipation of stress caused by shock, vibration, swelling or shrinking.

Basic Uses
3M™ 5200 is an excellent general purpose adhesive/sealant designed for use on bare wood, epoxy-treated wood, fiberglass laminates, metals, concrete and masonry construction joints, and vinyl siding. 3M™ 5200 is suitable for continual immersion in water. 3M™ 5200 is designed for interior and exterior use, and has a long working time.

Limitations
Do not apply over damp or contaminated surfaces. Substances that will contaminate a surface include glycols or products suspended in glycol, waxes or products with a wax base, substances that contain or contained silicones. Surfaces should be dry and clean to the base substrate. Penetrating epoxy coatings on the substrate should be fully cured before 3M™ 5200 is applied. Use with adequate ventilation. Alcohols should not be used in preparation for bonding as it will stop the curing process, causing the adhesive to fail.

Packaging
Immediately available in 10.1 oz. (300 ml) caulking gun cartridges.

Colors
3M™ 5200 is stocked in white, black and tan.

Application Recommendations
May be used in any vertical or horizontal joint, seam or crack. Applicator tip should be cut to the width of the joint, the inner seal punctured, the nozzle screwed in place. Knock out the bottom end seal of the cartridge and place cartridge in caulk gun. Closed cell polyethylene rods or adhesive-backed polyethylene tape can be used to control the depth of the sealant bead on very deep seams. 3M™ 5200 applied to a depth at least equal to the width of the joint.

Surface Preparation
For best adhesion, the joint interface must clean and dry. The joint surface may require a through wire brushing, grinding, sandblasting, or solvent washing. A primer such as CPES™ (Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer) can be used if desired. Primed surfaces should be cured before 3M™ 5200 is applied. Alcohols should not be used in preparation for bonding as it will stop the curing process, causing the adhesive to fail.

Application
3M™ 5200 is easy to apply with conventional caulking equipment. Cut tip of nozzle to desired bead size. Puncture seal inside the threaded nozzle end and screw on nozzle. Knock out the bottom end seal of the cartridge and place cartridge in the caulking gun. Apply 3M™ 5200 to the seam or part to be bonded. Position parts. Fill joint completely and tool. 3M™ 5200 is fully cured in 7 days at 70°F (21°C) @ 1/4" depth. The cure rate is lengthened at lower temperatures and less humidity. 3M™ 5200 will accept some paints. We recommend you test your paint for suitability.

Tooling & Cleaning
Tooling is recommended immediately after application to insure firm, intimate contact with the joint or seam interface. Dry tooling is preferred (with a tongue depressor, for example). If a finger is used, rubber gloves are recommended. Excess sealant and smears adjacent to the joint can be removed with xylene or toluene before sealant cures. After sealant cures excess compound can be cut away with a blade.
