H.B. Fuller 48173/58173

H.B. Fuller 48173/58173 is an extra-fast setting, two-component, room temperature-curing epoxy adhesive. This system will cure at as low as -18°C (0°F). It has a convenient mix ratio, excellent cohesive strength, and bonds to most substrates, including concrete, ceramics, metals, carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, plastics, epoxy, stone, wood, glass, china, and leather. It is recommended for fast patching, fixturing, and other repairs requiring quick handling strength. Two slower-setting versions of this system are also available, which include 58185, which sets in approximately 10 minutes, and 58269, which sets in approximately 20 minutes. This extra-fast-setting epoxy is an excellent general-purpose adhesive. H.B. Fuller 48173/58173 is available in the unique DOUBLE/BUBBLE® job-sized package as Reorder No. 04001.

General Instructions

Fast-Setting Epoxy can be used to repair tools, auto parts, electrical and electronic components, furniture and other applications that require a fast-setting adhesive. Surface must be clean and dry before application. Remove all chemicals, dirt, wax and oil. To obtain the best cured properties, accurate proportioning and thorough mixing are essential.
