How To Use

How to use this product
Ensure the surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from dust, grease, oil and loose powdery materials.
Cut the tip of the cartridge and pierce foil seal inside. Cut the nozzle end to desired opening (approx. 5mm diameter). Fit to the top of the cartridge. Insert the cartridge into a caulking gun.

CONTACT BOND METHOD (For dry, porous and lightweight materials)
Apply a ‘zig zag’ bead of adhesive to one surface only, apply beads every 40cm. press together and pull apart. Allow surfaces to dry a few minutes before firmly joining.

WET BOND METHOD (Use with clamping, for heavy materials)
Apply a ‘zig zag’ bead of adhesive, assemble joint within 10 minutes using sufficient nails, screws or clamping to hold load and achieve contact over the total bond area. Allow adhesives to set (at least 24 hours) before removing any temporary fasteners or clamping.

Clean Up
Wet adhesive – Clean off with mineral turps
Dry adhesive – can be removed by scraping or sanding

Handy tips
The product is repositionable for up to 20 minutes after fitting.
The time it takes to form a strong bond depends on the nature and conditions of the application. In most situations strong bonds can be achieved after 24 hours and will continue to strengthen over a 2-3 day period. The product will fully cure up to 7 days.
Time to achieve full strength is increased: at constant low temperatures; when thick applications (joints) are used; wide areas are bonded; when bonded surfaces are impervious (eg metals and dense timbers).
Take care to prevent spills of adhesive onto lacquered timber surfaces, as solvents in the product may damage the appearance/finish. Or you may use SELLEYS Liquid Nails Fast to prevent it happens.
Should not be applied at temperatures below -5℃.
Not recommended for tightly clamped joints; eg cabinet making or joinery.
SELLEYS Liquid Nails Fast is preferred for styrene foam.
Not suitable for use on mirrors.
Bonds weaken at high temperatures (eg above 50°C). Avoid bonding metals or heavy materials which will be heated by direct sun, eg to metal roofing and siding.
