Safety Precautions

Apply and cure in a well-ventilated area. Wear gloves and wash hands after use.

Preparation

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, wax, paint, rust, etc. Roughen smooth surfaces for better adhesion by sandblasting or sanding with an emery cloth. Wash glass and ceramic surfaces with soap and water then rinse and let dry. Pre-fit parts to be joined. Remove the plug from between the piston. Cut off the end tips of the syringe at one of the three cut-off points as illustrated below. For easier extrusion, cut at the 4 mm or 5mm opening. For more precise application, cut at 3 mm opening.

Turn syringe end up and pull plunger back slightly allowing air bubbles to rise to top. Press the plunger to expel air. Depress the double piston to dispense equal parts of the two materials on a disposable surface. Mix resin and hardener thoroughly (about 1 minute). Wipe syringe tips clean, retract piston slightly and close with the plug. Ensure that the plug is always placed in the same orientation on the tips.

Application

For best results apply a small amount of mixed adhesive to both surfaces within one to two minutes of mixing and press together. Placing parts together close to the 5 minute set time will reduce adhesion. Remove any excess glue immediately. Support bond for 10 minutes at room temperature. Usable strength achieved in 1 hour. Fully cured in 24 hours.

Cleanup

Clean excess glue immediately by wiping with clean cloth. Acetone may be used to assist in removal. Cured adhesive may be cut away with caution using a sharp blade. Prolonged immersion in paint stripper will soften the cured adhesive to aid removal.
Note: Acetone is highly flammable and not compatible with all surfaces. Follow manufacturer's instructions and test on small area before applying.
