Handling

Before use:

Working conditions

Open time: approx. 5 minutes. Curing time: 20 - 30 minutes.

Surface requirements

The areas to be glued must be dry and free of any dust or grease.

Tools

For mixing, use the bowl provided in the packaging. A clean glass plate, grease-free cardboard or similar may also be used for mixing, using a spatula. The adhesive should be very thoroughly mixed. The adhesive should be applied to the parts to be stuck together as soon as possible after mixing to ensure the best possible bond. The adhesive is applied using the spatula or a short-haired brush.

Mixture ratio

1:1

During use:

Directions for use

Measuring and mixing: The mixing ratio of the two components is 1:1 by volume or by weight, i.e. equal quantities of binder and hardener. After the parts to be stuck together have been prepared, the adhesive is dosed in the given ratio. Small variations in the proportions of binder and hardener make virtually no difference. Thorough mixing is essential for good bonding and even joins. For mixing, use the bowl provided in the packaging. A clean glass plate, grease-free cardboard or similar may also be used for mixing, using a spatula. The adhesive should be very thoroughly mixed. The adhesive should be applied to the parts to be stuck together as soon as possible after mixing to ensure the best possible bond. The adhesive is applied using the spatula or a short-haired brush. Application time (period of usability): The open time depends on the quantity used and the ambient temperature. For a quantity of 3 to 5g, the mix can be worked for up to 5 minutes; for a quantity of 20g, the working life is about 3 minutes. Hardening: At room temperature UHU Creativ' Metal, Glass & Ceramics hardens so that the join is firm within 20 to 30 Minutes at the most; after 60 minutes approximately half the final bond strength is reached, and after 12 hours the final bond strength is reached. The application of heat speeds up the hardening process.

After use:

Stains/residue

Traces of adhesive should be removed and apparatus should be cleaned before the adhesive has hardened – acetone and nitro thinners are suitable solvents for this. The same applies to soiled clothing. Once it has hardened, the adhesive can only be removed by using the solvent methylene chloride (dichloromethane). (Warning! Precautions must be taken!)

Storage conditions

Store in a dry, cool and frost-free place.
