Directions for use
- Surfaces should be clean, dry and grease free prior to bonding. Abrading and degreasing the surface will give a much stronger bond. (MEK or similar solvent can be used to degrease surfaces.)
- If bonding unreactive metals such as aluminium, titanium or zinc, we would recommend using Permabond A905 surface conditioner.
- Apply adhesive to the leading edge of both male and female components and assemble parts.
- Allow the adhesive to cure before exposing to chemicals / pressure etc. (See cure speed section.)
