Application Instructions

Preparation of substrates:
Surfaces to be bonded should be cleaned of all dust, oils or other contaminates. A solvent wipe is often adequate. Bonds to rigid surfaces are usually improved by a solvent wipe followed with light abrasion (180 grit), and solvent wiping to remove abrasive residue. Dry surfaces thoroughly before applying adhesive.

Method of application:

  • N.A.P. Adhesive/Sealant can be applied by ordinary caulking guns or pressure pumping equipment. Pumping equipment should be of the follower-plate type and have a pump ratio of at least 40:1. Aro, Binks, DeVilbiss, Graco and Lincoln all produce suitable equipment for handling this material.
  • Apply a bead of N.A.P. Adhesive/Sealant to one surface at temperatures above 40°F. When used as a sealant, the applied bead will shrink approximately 50%, so no tooling is necessary for most applications. The bead surface will be tack free in 15 - 45 minutes, depending on ambient conditions.Initial set time is 4 hours, after which parts may be handled.
  • When used as an adhesive between two non-porous surfaces, solvent must escape through the edges of the bond line.
  • Clamping, taping or use of mechanical fasteners to hold parts in place until Adhesive/Sealant develops strength is recommended. After 24 hours at room temperature, the product is considered self-holding. The use of a heat lamp at 150° F for 1 hour will speed solvent evaporation and accelerate strength build-up.
  • An alternative technique is to apply product to one surface, press the two surfaces to be bonded together to ensure adhesive transfer, separate parts and allow to air dry 10 - 20 minutes, then press back together with good pressure.
  • N.A.P. Adhesive/Sealant is formulated for room temperature curing, and curing is initiated when a majority of the solvent has been evacuated from the bond line. Strength build-up is very fast in the early stages to give high holding power, with continued strength build-up over time.
  •  Lower solids and viscosity grades of N.A.P. Adhesive/Sealant are available for alternative applications where better flow characteristics are required. These versions of the product are suitable for trowelling or brushing, and can be pumped through lower power equipment, including Plews guns.
