3M Updates to DP Series Epoxy Duo Pack 50ml Cartridges


We’ve encountered a lot of questions and confusion lately from an update 3M has made to the cartridges on their existing 3M DP Series 50ml epoxy cartridges. This article will discuss the changes and how it will affect customers currently using this product.

Please note, if you are looking for static mixers to fit the new cartridges they can be found here.

What’s Changed with the 3M 50ml Cartridges

3M has moved from a traditional bayonet cartridge to the Sulzer B-System cartridge. While this new B-System cartridge does offer a number of advantages, it also requires a different static mixer nozzle and in some cases a different cartridge gun.

The new 3M 50ml cartridges for the DP Series adhesives offer a number of improvements over standard packaging. Some of the improvements and changes include:

  • New seal to eliminate cartridge leaks
  • New isolated outlet to prevent cross-contamination
  • Updated cap to prevent accidental bonding of cap to cartridge
  • Cartridge volume changes
  • Manual plunger and nozzle changes
  • Pneumatic applicator changes

Let’s look at some of these improvements and how they will affect dispensing the 3M DP Series Epoxy Adhesives

New Seal to Eliminate Cartridge Leaks

The new pistons use a double lip seal instead of an O-ring seal design to help eliminate leaks due to chemical incompatibilities that cause O-rings to swell and degrade over time.

New 3M Piston Seal on DP Series Epoxy Cartridges

New cartridge end sealing flange

A sealing flange at the rear of the cartridge chambers “locks” the above pistons in position so these products can be qualified for air shipments without leaks around pistons.

New isolated outlet to prevent cross-contamination

The current cap can be installed backwards on a partially dispensed cartridge, permanently sealing the cartridge shut. This renders the remaining adhesive useless. The new cap is keyed and cannot be installed backwards, so partially consumed cartridges can be saved and used later.

New 3M DP Epoxy cartridge cap vs Old cartridge cap

Cartridge Volume Changes

The contained volume of the 3M Duo-Pack cartridges has changed due to the new 3M cartridges. This is actually an improvement as more material is supplied in each cartridge. below are the new cartridge volumes and images of the new systems. 

OLD DELIVERY SYSTEM NEW DELIVERY SYSTEM

  • 1:1 System 47.0 or 50.0 mL 48.5 mL
  • 2:1 System 37.0 mL 50.0 mL
  • 2:3 System 43 mL No change – see below*

In addition, the new 1:1 System has one cartridge style, instead of three per the old packaging.

New 3M 1:1 cartridges and static mixers for 50ml DP cartridges

New 3M 2:1 cartridges and static mixers for 50ml DP cartridges.

Manual Plunger and Static Mixer Nozzle Changes

A portion of the 3M™ EPX™ Plus II Manual Applicator Plunger Set has changed. The applicator has remained the same, but the plungers have changed to accommodate the new 50 mL / 2:1 cartridge size. Please refer to the table below to determine which hardware accessories work with the new and improved cartridge delivery system.
