Getting started

Before use:

Working conditions

Only apply at temperatures between +5°C and +40°C.

Surface requirements

Both parts must be solid, clean, free of dust and grease. Use of primer not required. The surface may be slightly moist.

Tools

Apply cartridge contents using a sealant gun (a Bison Power Pistol, for example). If necessary, use a rubber mallet to tap lightly.

Preparation of product

Before using open cartridge at the top by cutting off the plastic nipple above the thread with a sharp knife. Fix the nozzle onto the cartridge and cut at an angle to the desired diameter.

During use:

Handling of packaging

Bonding and fixing: Cut the nozzle to a diameter of at least 0.5 cm. Sealing: Cut the nozzle at an angle to the desired joint width.

Directions for use

  • Bonding and fixing: Apply in stripes or dots (every 10 - 40 cm). Always apply to the corners and along the edges of construction boards. Correctly position material within 10 minutes and press firmly or lightly tap with a rubber mallet. If necessary, clamp or fixate heavy materials for 4 hours. Can be handled after 30 minutes (the connection is now strong enough to withstand transportation or a light load); maximum final strength after approx. 4 hours, depending on the surface and the ambient conditions.
  • Sealing: Evenly apply to the bottom of the joint and tool within 10 minutes using a moistened (with soapy water without lemon) putty knife, sealant smoother, or finger. Tool the vertical joints from bottom to top. Fully cured after a few days (depending on the thickness of the layer). When painting over with alkyd paint, the paint may dry more slowly.

Points of attention

The following drying times are based on bonding at least one porous material and an adhesive layer of approx. 1 mm thickness. If two non-porous materials are being bonded and/or the layer of adhesive is thicker, the drying times may be substantially longer.

After use:

Stains/residue

Use white spirit for cleaning tools and removing wet adhesive residue. Dry adhesive residue can only be removed mechanically.

Storage conditions

Close container properly and store in a dry, cool and frost-free place.
