HOW TO:

Step 1: Safety Precautions

For interior applications, apply and cure in a well ventilated area. Wear gloves and wash hands after use.

Step 2: Preparation

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, wax and paint. Roughen smooth surfaces for better adhesion. Pre-fit parts to be joined. Pierce the seal in the head of the tube using the reverse end of the cap.

Step 3: Application

Wet Bonding Instructions:
Apply evenly to both surfaces and press surfaces together. Hold parts together until set. The assembly can be repositioned while the adhesive is still wet. Wipe excess adhesive away before it sets.

For repairing small tears and rips:
Apply to the edges of the damaged areas. Press both edges together and secure with masking tape for approximately 10 minutes.

For repairing large tears and rips:
Place a cloth or Fiberglass patch under the damaged area for extra strength. Apply product to the edges of the damaged area. Secure the repair with masking tape for approximately 10 minutes.

Contact bonding Instructions:
Apply evenly to both surfaces. Let dry for 10 to 30 minutes or until dry to the touch. On porous surfaces, apply a second coat and allow to dry. Assemble parts within 30 minutes.
