How to use
- All surfaces must be clean and dry. Degrease and wash off any contaminants that could
impair adhesion. Suitable solvents include isopropyl alcohol, acetone or methyl ethyl
- Unprimed adhesion may be obtained on many substrates such as glass, metals and most
common engineering plastics. Substrates to which good adhesion is normally not obtained
include PTFE, polyethylene, polypropylene and related materials.
However, for maximum adhesion, the use of DOWSIL™ 1200 OS Primer is recommended.
- After solvent cleaning, a thin coat of DOWSIL™ 1200 OS Primer is applied by dipping,
brushing or spraying. Allow primer to dry for 15 to 90 minutes at room temperature and a
relative humidity of 50% or higher.
How to Apply
- Apply DOWSIL™ 732 Multi-Purpose Sealant to one of the prepared surfaces, then quickly
cover with the other substrate to be bonded.
- On exposure to moisture, the freshly applied material will "skin-over". Any tooling should be
completed before this skin forms. The surface is easily tooled with a spatula. The
adhesive/sealant will be tack-free in less than 45 minutes.
- After skin formation, cure continues inward from the surface. In 24 hours (at room
temperature and 50% relative humidity) DOWSIL™ 732 Multi-Purpose Sealant will cure to a
depth of about 3 mm. Very deep sections, especially when access to atmospheric moisture
is restricted will take longer to cure completely. Cure time is extended at lower humidity
- Before handling and packaging bonded components, users are advised to wait a sufficiently
long time to ensure that the integrity of the adhesive seal is not affected. This will depend on
many factors and should be determined by the user for each specific application.
DOWSIL™ 732 Multi-Purpose Sealant releases a small amount of acetic acid during cure.
This may cause corrosion on some metallic parts or substrates, especially in direct contact
or when the cure is carried out in a totally enclosed configuration which would not allow cure
by-products to escape.
