How to use

Protect work area from spills. Ensure surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from dust or debris.


Using a spreader, apply a thin, even coat of adhesive to each surface to be bonded. Best results achieved when applied at room temperature.


Allow for adhesive to partially dry before positioning surfaces (approximately 15-20 minutes).


Press surfaces firmly together when final position is achieved. Allow a minimum of 24 hours for a full cure. Cure time is dependent on the amount of adhesive applied and may increase with lower application temperatures and when used on non-porous surfaces.


Clean-up and Storage: Wipe uncured adhesive with a dry cloth and clean with acetone, isopropyl alcohol, or citrus-based solvents according to manufacturer’s instructions. Cured adhesive may be removed by scraping from the surface. Replace lid tightly and store in a cool, dry place away from children and animals.
