How quick does it set?
Whats the best way to apply it? it looked an absolute mess and knight mare to apply to the first support shown.
Here are some tips I posted a couple of years ago for using the 3M products on cam columns, but the 3030 is essentially the same -- I like them both equally:
For the reinforcement I used two applications. The first is 3M ScotchWeld
DP 8010 and the second is almost the same but with a filler added -- DP 8010NS. 3M can tell you who sells it in your area. Each package runs about $20. It has a 6 month shelf life -- check the date on your product.
Tips on using it:
This is a 10:1 mixing ratio. You don't need the expensive special dispenser or mixer they might try to sell you. Get two different diameter dowels to use as plungers. Pre-mark the dowels to dispense about 1/2 batch at a time. Mix well with a stick.
Prep: medium sand the columns and the base around the columns. Clean everything with alcohol and let it dry.
You'll have about 5 minutes working time (they say 10 -- don't believe it). Have everything figured out and prepped before mixing. Concentrate on one column at a time, one column per batch, applied with double latex gloved fingers from the center hatch. Apply by feel but keep a mirror to inspect your work. Be in a ventilated or open area. Do a practice run before mixing.
Repeat the process on the other side with your next batch.
I did a second application with the NS version to add structure after the first application has cured.
I tried some pre-cut mesh for additional structure but made a mess of it and abandoned the idea. Didn't end up needing it anyway.
I hoped for a year's service out of this. So far it's been over 2, well over 1000 miles and it shows no sign of failing. This boat does boat wake sprints that probably tore the cam columns apart in the first place. Amazing stuff! Let me know if you have any questions.
The first time I used this product it cooked off before I could finish the application. If possible, it's best to do the job in stages, mixing small batches. I only used the NS version for the cam columns where I needed to create some structure.
IMO, they're both amazing products, though not the easiest to use. Loctite makes a second similar product called 3300, but I have not tried or tested it. These products can be found at some of the industrial suppliers.
