- Features mid-range Shore A hardness
3M™ Polyurethane Adhesive Sealant 560 is a high-strength, single-component, moisture-curing, gap-filling polyurethane adhesive that creates high strength bonds on a wide variety of materials including plastics, metals, fiberglass and wood.
Creates High Strength Elastomeric Bond with Good UV Resistance
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.
- Panel bonding
- Attaching exterior panels and metal framework
- Vehicle flooring attachment
- Transportation manufacturing (bus, rail, truck, trailer)
- Replacement of mechanical fasteners in many situations
Paintable after Skin Forms for Improved Appearance
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. Choose a 3M Manual or Pneumatic Applicator for dispensing 3M adhesives sealant cartridges and 400ml/600ml sausage packs.
