HANDLING & APPLICATIONS

The general application information presented here is based upon typical conditions determined by Alpha Adhesives & Sealants Limited testing. Our recommendations on the use of this product are based on methods believed to be reliable. It is advised that users conduct their own tests to determine the suitability of the product for their specific application.

All substrates must be clean of any dust, grit, loose material, wax, grease and oil using Alpha T559 (TF) or a suitable cleaner. The materials to be bonded should be dry.

  1. Unscrew the cap and push the top of it into the tube to pierce the tube seal.
  2. Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from contamination.
  3. Spread adhesive evenly over both surfaces. Wait until touch dry (normally 10-15 minutes), but no longer than 25 minutes.
  4. Bring the materials together very gently. Slight adjustment can be made at this stage if required.
  5. Press down firmly and evenly for an instant, powerful bond.

The immediate high contact bond strength increases appreciably within the next 48 hours and will develop still further in service. For the best heat resistance, leave at room temperature for 7 days, before subjecting to high in-service temperatures up to 70°C.

Alpha Cleaner T559 (TF) or a similar suitable cleaner should be used to remove residues from surfaces.
