Benefits

  • Joint Movement of up to + or – 25%.
  • Temperature Resistance of –40 to +1000C.
  • Adheres to most surfaces.
  • Stays permanently elastic after curing
  • Easy to use.
  • Safe for use in food environments and in contact with potable water when fully cured. It conforms to the technical requirements of BS5889 : 1989 Type A and FDA Regulation 177 2600.

Methods of Application

  • Ensure that surfaces to be bonded are clean and free from grease, dirt, dust and any other contamination.
  • Glass, metal and aluminium should be cleaned with IMPACT ADHESIVE S1909 Solvent Cleaner / Thinner for best adhesion.
  • Cut the tip of the cartridge taking care not to damage the thread and affix nozzle to cartridge.
  • Cut nozzle at 450 leaving an opening slightly larger than the gap to be filled.
  • Apply using a standard sealant gun using firm even pressure to achieve the desired bead width.
  • To ensure a proper bond smooth the sealant with a spatula or similar tool.
  • Allow the bond to fully cure.
