Safety Precautions

Ventilate to the outside during application and cure. Wear gloves. Wash hands after use.

Preparation

General application: The temperature of the adhesive, the surfaces and the working area must be between 1.4°F (-17°C) and 120°F (49°C). For smooth, fast, easy application during cold weather, store adhesive at room temperature (70° ± 5°F / 22 ± 2°C) 24 hours prior to use. Ensure surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry, free of dust, grease, oil or other contaminants and structurally sound. Do not apply over wallpaper, vinyl or foil wall coverings. To increase adhesion, sand glossy or painted surfaces to a dull finish. Pre-fit all materials prior to applying product. Cut off tip of cartridge at 45° angle to desired bead size. The recommended bead size is 3/8'' (9.5 mm). Puncture seal inside of nozzle.

Mirror: For best adhesion the mirror, substrate and adhesive should be at room temperature (70 ± 5°F / 22 ± 2°C) for 24 hours before use. Do not use on a painted surface, wall coverings or treated wood. On porous substrates such as drywall or wood, apply a primer or sealer (not paint) on the substrate and allow it to dry. Painted surfaces should be sanded to the original surface and the substrate cleaned and sealed with a primer. Wall covering must be removed where the adhesive is to be applied, cleaned and sealed.

Application

General application: Using a caulking gun, apply 3/8'' zigzag bead to one surface to be bonded or apply a continuous broken bead around the perimeter and in the center of the object. One surface must be porous. Ensure that all outer edges and centers are adequately supplied with adhesive to ensure a complete and total bond. Bracing or nailing is recommended for vertical applications. Use nails sparingly for support and as an aid to alignment during installation. Repositioning time is approximately 15 minutes. If work is delayed, remove excess adhesive and begin again. After use, wipe off nozzle tip and recap immediately.

Mirror bonding: This product must be used with a permanent support system. Be very careful not to scratch or damage the back coating of the mirror. Apply the adhesive to the back of mirror or the substrate in ½ inch thick globs approximately 2-3 inches in diameter every square foot. Place the adhesive mounds so that space will be left between them when the mirror is installed. This will allow the adhesive to dry. Do not place the adhesive too close to the edge to prevent ''squeeze out.'' Place mirror into support channels or hangers and press in place within 10-15 minutes. The adhesive should be compressed to 1/8'' to 3/16''. Tape or brace the top of the mirror until the adhesive has set at least 48 hours. For non porous surfaces longer curing time will be required. Do not try to reposition the mirror once in place. If sealing the edges wait a minimum of 7 days. Curing time will depend on temperature, humidity, type of substrate and amount of air that can reach the adhesive.

Cleanup

Clean tools and uncured adhesive residue immediately with mineral spirits or paint thinner in a well-ventilated area to the outdoors following the manufacturer's safety instructions for use. Cured adhesive may be carefully cut away with a sharp-edged tool.
