For bonding with short pressing times and radio frequency (HF) curing, like lamination of veneer or HPL on waterproof boards. Particularly suited for wood constructions and finger jointing, tongue and groove joints and wood plugs. Features v Stronger than wood. v Ready-to-use. v Open time 15 minutes. v For indoor and outdoor applications. v Dries transparent. v Solvent free. v Water resistant according to EN-204-D3. v Approved for maritime applications, low surface flammability, certified to IMO A.653 (16). Method of use Substrate: Materials which have to be bonded must be clean, dry, dust- and grease free. Wood-humidity may not exceed 18%. Pre-treatment: Greasy/oily wood (like teak) must be degreased in advance and must be bonded immediately. Application: Apply the adhesive in a constant and evenly coat on one side and let dry for a few minutes. On hard wood apply the adhesive on both surfaces. Use only perfectly plane substrates. In practice: it is better to apply one thin coat on each surface instead of one thick coat on only one surface. Open time: Join both substrates within 15 minutes. Drying time/clamping time/setting time: Press the materials which have to be bonded (5 kg/cm2 ) for min. 30 minutes (pressing time depends on wood type, moisture content and ambient temperature). Do not apply below +5°C. Usage: Approx. 150 g/m2 . Cleaning: Fresh adhesive remains: (lukewarm) water, dried adhesive: acetone.
