Preparation – surfaces must be dry, level and free of dust, loose materials, grease, oils, paint, wax, rust, traces of gypsum or other materials which would impair the bond of the adhesive.
Application – After cutting the nozzle to the required fissure width, cut the cartridge outlet to suit the thread and screw on the nozzle. Insert the cartridge into the applicator gun and then apply the glue in strips on the whole of the surface to be bonded, maintaining a distance of 5 cm between strips and 2 cm distance from the element edge. Join the surfaces together and press them strongly and evenly. Position of the element can be adjusted by 2-3 mm within about 3-5 min. from the moment of joining both surfaces (without disconnecting of elements). In case of bigger elements (above 0,15 m2 ) use supporting elements preventing slipping. Optimal conditions for bonding are: temperature about 15-25°C and relative air humidity about 60%.
Adhesion tests prior to the application are recommended.
Cleaning – mineral spirits or acetone before curing , mechanically after curing.
Remarks – avoid contact with water until the adhesive is fully cured. Not recommended for PE, PP, Teflon, surfaces permanently wet.
Due to the variety of safety backing materials currently available on the market, it is strongly recommended that the user carries out trials to confirm high quality of bonding.
The data contained herein are measured in temperature of 20°C and relative air humidity of 50%. Otherwise the curing time can change to longest or shortest.
