Cure Method
Application Instruction

Surfaces to be bonded should be clean and dry. Dispense a drop or drops to one surface only. Apply only enough to leave a thin film layer after compression. Press parts together and hold firmly for a few seconds. Good contact is essential. An adequate bond develops in less that one minute and maximum strength is attained in 24 hours. Wipe off excess adhesive from the top of the container and recap. Products, if left uncapped, may deteriorate by contamination from moisture in the air. Because products cure by polymerization, whitening may appear on the surface of the container or the bonded materials. This will not affect adhesive performance.

Curing Performance
Ambient surface moisture initiates the curing process. Handling strength is reached in a short time, and will vary based on environmental conditions, bond line gap, and other factors. Product will continue to cure for at least 24 hours before full strength and solvent resistance is developed.
