Directions for use
- Most surfaces may be bonded "as received" but
contamination such as loose oxide layers or excessive oil
may affect cure speed and bond strength. Cleaning is
recommended if maximum strength is required.
- Brush on the activator to one of the mating surfaces to be
bonded. Apply adhesive to other surface.
- For large gaps (>0.4 mm) or where maximum cure speed
is required then treatment of both surfaces is
- Allow 1 to 5 minutes for solvent to evaporate. After the
solvent evaporates, the active ingredients will appear wet,
and will remain active for up to 2 hours after application.
Contamination of the surface before bonding should be
- Where adhesive is applied onto an activated surface,
assembly should be completed as quickly as possible
(within 15 seconds).
- Secure the assembly and await fixturing before any
