Handling

Before use:

Working conditions

Only apply at temperatures between +5°C and +40°C.

Surface requirements

Both parts must be solid, clean, free of dust and grease. Use of primer not required. The surface may be slightly moist.

Tools

Apply cartridge contents using a sealant gun (e.g. UHU Power Pistol). If necessary, use a rubber mallet to tap lightly.

Preparation of product

Before using open cartridge at the top by cutting off the plastic nipple above the thread with a sharp knife. Fix the nozzle onto the cartridge and cut at an angle to the desired diameter.

During use:

Handling of packaging

Bonding and fixing: Cut the nozzle to a diameter of at least 0.5 cm. Sealing: Cut the nozzle at an angle to the desired joint width.

Directions for use

  • Bonding and fixing: Apply in stripes or dots (every 10 - 40 cm). Always apply to the corners and along the edges of construction boards. Correctly position material within 10 minutes and press firmly or lightly tap with a rubber mallet. If necessary, clamp or fixate heavy materials for 24 hours. Maximum final bond strength after approx. 48 hours, depending on the substrate and the ambient circumstances.
  • Sealing: Evenly apply to the bottom of the joint and tool within 10 minutes using a moistened (with soapy water without lemon) putty knife, sealant smoother, or finger. Tool the vertical joints from bottom to top. Fully cured after a few days (depending on the thickness of the layer). When painting over with alkyd paint, the paint may dry more slowly.

After use:

Stains/residue

Use white spirit for cleaning tools and removing wet adhesive residue. Dry adhesive residue can only be removed mechanically.

Storage conditions

Close container properly and store in a dry, cool and frost-freeplace.
