These are typical results under laboratory conditions.
At 40°C gel time will be reduced to half, in case of increased temperatures, pouring should be planned accordingly.
Substrate preparation: The substrate of the substrate must be clean and dry. Remove all dirt, grease and foreign material by cleaning with suitable solvent, sand blasting, mechanical abrasion, or acid etching.
Mixing: To obtain good results, thorough mixing of the ingredients is essential. Usually, the resin and hardener are mixed in small quantities to extend the working time and prevent high exothermic reaction and pre-gelling.
Application: To ensure good adhesion between the substrates, it is recommended to apply rich layer of homogenous blend uniformly on the surface and fill the dents and pinholes. Adequate cuing normally takes place within 24 hours, post curing at temperatures more than 40°C is recommended.
Cleaning and maintenance of equipment: Tools and equipment used during the process are best cleaned immediately after use since removal of cured resin is difficult and time consuming. It is recommended that the bulk of the resin be removed using a scrapper and the remainder washed away using solvents such as toluene, xylene or acetone.
INSTRUCTION OF USE
Surface should be thoroughly cleaned, free from loose particles like dust, oil, grease etc. If the surface is shiny, rub it until a rough texture is formed over it. Take equal parts of A & B and mix it thoroughly until a uniform paste is achieved. Mix thoroughly, best results can be achieved within 2 mins.
