3M says that its new Window Bonder Adhesive Sealant 595 is designed to meet increasingly stringent requirements for environmental safety while meeting the operational needs of its clients. The company says its adhesive features high green strength, cures quickly and is the first in its category to be classifiable as a low-VOC product. According to 3M, the new product meets Southern California Air Quality Management District requirements and will improve workplace safety by reducing employee exposure to solvents. It expects the adhesive to prove useful in the manufacture of large vehicles and agricultural equipment and says that manufacturers will not need to provide as much support for windows while the sealant cures. The curing process itself is said to be faster with the company citing a minimum drive away time of one hour.
