  4. Apply mixed glue to both surfaces of job – then bring together.
  5. Do not apply undue strain to bond for 30 minutes. Hold join in place using tapes or weights if necessary. Maximum strength reached after 16 hours.

        Limitations:

  • *Will not bond Polyethylene or Polypropylene plastics. 

 

 

  • For maximum working time, mix in small quantities. Large quantities accelerate the curing process and reduce working time.
  • When using the tube variant, ensure you replace the correct cap on the correct tube. Placing the wrong cap on the wrong tube will cause the tube to harden (caps and tubes are colour coded to help).
  • To remove product after cure, mechanical action (scraping or sanding) is recommended. Since the product is chemically resistant solvent will NOT dissolve this product.
  • Allow for longer bonding times in colder weather.
  • Bond strength will soften above 60°C but strength is retained when temperature returns to normal.
  • To reposition the bond once cured, check that the item is heat resistant. If safe, heat the item slowly, e.g. in an oven, to at least 150°C. The product will soften and liquify slightly. Scrape off any excess then reposition the joint carefully using appropriate safety equipment.  Allow the item to cool down in the correct position.  The product will reharden once returned to room temperature.
  • Clamping is recommended for a stronger bond.
  • Uncured product may be removed with acetone.
  • Cured product can be softened with heat to make scraping easier.
