How to use

For best results ensure both surfaces are dry, clean and free of dust and grease.

Using the product for the first time: Screw the nozzle onto the tube and remove the cap to use. Apply a small amount of glue to create a continuous bead on the edges of the object. You have time to reposition your objects. Wait t least 3 seconds for an initial tack. Switch on the light and shine it around the edge for 15 seconds.

Adapt time for different materials if necessary. After each use, clean the nozzle and screw the cap on tightly.


How do I store my adhesive?

Most adhesives have a shelf life of at least 12 months if stored in a cool (below 25°C), dry place in its original moisture-tight container. If the material is kept beyond the recommended shelf life, it is not necessarily unusable, but a check should be performed to observe whether the product is still workable, apply-able and uncured.

How do I remove glue from my fingers?

Rinse your fingers immediately with plenty of warm soapy water and do not pull on the skin that has been glued. If glue remains after using warm soapy water, it will often de-bond within a couple of days due to general wear and tear and the natural oils in the skin. If skin irritation occurs, consult a doctor.

How do I prepare the surfaces to be glued?

Before applying glue, ensure that all surfaces are of sound nature and clean, dry and free from dust, grease or any other contamination.
