Safety Precautions

Wear gloves and wash hands after use.

Preparation

Surface Preparation:
Ensure all surfaces are clean and free of dirt, oil, wax, loose paint, frost, oxidation and other contaminations. Rubbing alcohol and ammonia water are effective cleaners for surface preparation. Do not use petroleum solvents. Abraded or irregular surfaces are acceptable bonding surfaces but must be cleaned. For use with teak, wipe with alcohol prior to application to remove surface oils. Mask off areas that must be protected.

General Preparation:
The temperature of the product, the surfaces and the working area should be between 32°F (0°C) and 100°F (38°C). For best performance, temperature should be between 60°F (16°C) and 100°F (38°C). Cut tip to desired bead size.

Application

When using the cartridge, place in cartridge gun. Apply to clean surface and smooth sealant or make bond before product skins. When bonding two impermeable materials, such as metal or plastic, brief separation and reassembly of the bonding surfaces to expose the adhesive to atmospheric moisture will often accelerate the cure. In extremely dry environments, local humidification may be needed to initiate curing. Low temperature will slow the cure reaction and heat will accelerate it. Product should not be applied below 32°F (0°C). Allow the assembly to cure for 30 to 60 minutes before handling or machining. Allow 24 hours for cure and before painting. Open containers should be quickly protected from atmospheric moisture.

Cleanup

Clean tools and uncured sealant residue immediately using a solvent such as alcohol. Cured sealant can be removed by abrading or scraping the substrate.
