What does it do?

Suitable for:

Bonding: e.g. glass, stone, natural stone, concrete, plasterwork, many synthetic materials, wood, chipboard, Trespa®, iron, aluminium, zinc, steel, stainless steel and other metals, ceramic tiles, cork and mirrors. Fixing: e.g. skirting boards, lathing, window sills, doorsteps, roof edges, construction boards, insulation materials, gypsum boards, polystyrene ornaments and decorative frames. Sealing: e.g. skirting boards (synthetics), window frames, stair steps, window sills, doorsteps and drywalls. Also suitable for sealing cracks in walls and ceilings.

Not suitable for:

Not suitable for PE, PP, PTFE and bitumen. When gluing plastics always perform an adhesion test first. Adhesion to plastics can vary depending on the type of synthetic and the quality of the plastic.

Getting started

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

Use putty knife or spatula to apply. If necessary, use a rubber mallet to tap lightly. For surface bonding use a glue spreader (2 mm).

During use:

Handling of packaging

Before using, pierce the tube membrane with the puncture point integrated into the cap.

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 4 hours. Can be handled after 2 hours (the connection is now strong enough to withstand transportation or a light load); maximum final strength after approx. 4 hours, depending on the surface and the ambient conditions. 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.

Points of attention

The following drying times are based on bonding at least one porous material and an adhesive layer of approx. 1 mm thickness. If two non-porous materials are being bonded and/or the layer of adhesive is thicker, the drying times may be substantially longer. When adhesive is applied underwater, it may turn white. Avoid lasting direct contact with UV radiation (eg. sealing applications outdoors).

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.
