Application Method
Application Instructions

Surface preparation:

  • Clean, dry, dust-free surfaces are required for optimum bond strength. A solvent wipe is recommended for maximum adhesion. Surface temperatures should be maintained at temperatures above 40°F.
  • Bonds to rigid surfaces are usually improved by a solvent wipe followed with light abrasion (180 grit), and another solvent wiping to remove abrasive residue. Dry surfaces thoroughly before applying adhesive.

Application methods:

  • Suitable spray equipment is listed below. Others are available as well. The adhesive should be applied in smooth even coats to both surfaces at a rate of at least 2 dry grams per square foot of bonding area.
  • Porous materials, such as fabric, foam or wood may require two coats of adhesive. Join the surfaces when the adhesive is tacky to the touch but does not transfer to the finger. Adequate pressure must be applied to assure complete contact.

Clean - up:

  • Acetone is recommended for cleaning equipment and over spray. Other solvents will provide varying degrees of cleaning capability.
