Applications & Uses

Directions for Use

1. Prior to bonding, surfaces must be free of any dust, oils, or other contaminants.
2. Bring material to room temperature (25°C) before using (typical thaw time for 30mL syringes is 2-4 hours). We do not recommend thawing the material more than 3 times.
3. FH8620 is sensitive to humidity; do not expose the material to air for an extended period of time. The recommended relative humidity during dispensing is <60%.
4. If the material is left idle in the syringe tip for an extended period of time, the tip should be purged or solvent cleaned.
5. Seal any remaining material and store immediately at -18°C.

Clean-Up

Equipment and any spillage can be cleaned promptly after use with a mixture of anhydrous isopropyl alcohol and acetone that should be discarded after each use.
