Loctite Epoxy Gel

Loctite Epoxy Gel is a two-part adhesive consisting of an epoxy resin and a hardener, available in a convenient dual syringe. When mixed in equal volumes, the resin and hardener react to produce a tough, rigid, high strength bond in 6 minutes. The gel formulation is ideal for vertical surfaces where dripping may occur. It can be used as an adhesive for a wide range of materials or as a versatile filler for gap bonding, surface repairs and laminating. Loctite Epoxy Gel does not shrink and is resistant to water and most common solvents. It can be tinted with earth pigments, cement or sand for color matching. It can be sanded and drilled.

Step by step

HOW TO USE:

Step 1: Safety Precautions

Apply 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. Remove the plug from between the piston. Cut off the end tips of the syringe. Depress the double piston to dispense equal parts of the two materials on a discardable surface. Mix resin and hardener thoroughly. Wipe syringe tips clean, retract piston slightly and close with the plug. Ensure that the plug is always placed in the same orientation on the tips.

Step 3: Application

Apply a small amount to both surfaces, join and press together. Remove any excess glue immediately with acetone. Support until bond sets in 60 minutes at room temperature. Usable strength in 24 hours.

Step 4: Cleanup

Clean excess glue immediately with acetone. Cured adhesive may be cut away using a sharp blade with caution. Prolonged immersion in paint stripper may soften the cured adhesive to aid removal.
