HOW TO USE

Surfaces to be bonded must be clean, structurally sound, dry and free from dust, dirt, oil, rust and loose material. Porous surfaces such as plaster and fibre cement board should first be primed with a suitable primer. Smooth non-porous surfaces such as metals, plastics and rubbers should be lightly abraded with sandpaper and degreased with a solvent. Glass should be cleaned with a solvent such as acetone or ethanol. Enamel-based paints need to be lightly sanded. Building panels should be cut to shape beforehand.

Wall Panels

Apply the desired amount of adhesive (usually 6mm in diameter) to the rear of the panel in short and discontinuous beads at approximately 5cm spacing. For an uneven surface, apply a discontinuous bead in a wave-like pattern. Immediately present the panel to the wall slightly above its required position and applying pressure slide it into place in order to break any surface skin. Press firmly for approximately 10 seconds. If necessary, tap lightly with a soft mallet to ensure maximum overall contact. Any adjustment must be made within 5 minutes of placing. In some instances it may be necessary to use temporary mechanical support until final bond strength is reached (approx 24 hours).

Heavy panels and non-porous surfaces 

After pressing panel to the wall, break the bond by pulling away immediately ensuring good transfer has occurred. Wait a maximum of 5 minutes before rejoining the two materials and pressing firmly together. If may be necessary to use temporary mechanical support (e.g. panel pins, masonry nails, masking tape, etc) until final bond strength is reached (approx 48 hours for non porous surfaces)."

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
