Getting started

Before use:

Working conditions

Only apply at temperatures between +5°C and +35°C. Product cures by mixing the resin and hardener.

Personal safety

Preferably wear gloves.

Surface requirements

The materials to be bonded must be dry, clean, free of dust and grease.

Preliminary surface treatment

Degrease parts to be bonded with acetone. Roughen smooth surfaces (sandpaper).

Tools

Mix the components in the double-syringe by means of the supplied mixing bowl and spatula.

During use:

Handling of packaging

Remove the spatula from the side of the double syringe, and the closure cap from the handle. Break the seal of the double syringe.

Directions for use

Press out an equal amount of both components onto the enclosed mixing tray. Mix these two equal parts well with a synthetic spatula until a mixture is obtained with a homogeneous colour. Apply the mixture, which at room temperature (+20°C) remains toolable for about 1.5 hours, as a thin layer on one of the two materials. Join the materials and keep them in place for 7 hours. Be careful not to move the parts before the adhesive has cured. After use, clean the nozzle with a cloth and place the special cap in the handle on the double syringe. Resin and hardener must not come into contact with each other unless for usage.

Advice

  • Some types of synthetics can not be joined such as polyethylene and polypropylene. This can be tested by holding a glowing copper wire against the synthetics. Does it smell of wax? Then you can not bond it.
  • Use a piece of adhesive tape in order to keep the parts in place while the adhesive is curing.

Points of attention

After use close well (note: always place back the cap in the same way, due to the bonding of the cap to the double syringe). For optimum performance it is important to create a larger amount of adhesive and mix it very well. Curing time depends on the temperature. Adhesive does not cure below +5°C.

After use:

Stains/residue

Remove wet stains immediately with warm water and soap. Cured adhesive residue can only be removed mechanically.

Storage conditions

Store cool, dry, frost-free, upright (nozzle upwards) and tightly closed.
