Loctite Epoxy Quick Set

Loctite Epoxy Quick Set is a two-part adhesive consisting of an epoxy resin and a hardener. When mixed in equal volumes, the resin and hardener react to produce a tough, rigid, high strength bond in 5 minutes for most projects. Available in a convenient dual syringe which delivers equal parts of both components every time. Loctite Epoxy Quick Set can be used as an adhesive for a wide range of materials or as a versatile filler for gap filling, surface repairs and laminating. Loctite Epoxy Quick Set 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. Turn syringe end up and pull plunger back slightly allowing air bubbles to rise to top. Depress the double piston to dispense equal parts of the two materials on a disposable surface. 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. Mix resin and hardener for one minute thoroughly.

Step 3: Application

For best results apply a small amount to both surfaces within one to two minutes of mixing adhesive and press together. Placing parts together close to the 5 minute set time will reduce adhesion. Remove any excess glue immediately with acetone. Support bond for 10 minutes at room temperature. Usable strength achieved in 8 hours. Fully cured in 24 hours.

Step 4: Cleanup

Not damaged by freezing. If frozen, warm to room temperature until the resin and hardener become liquid enough to mix. Use an approved hazardous waste facility for disposal.
