Go2® Gel - Extra Strength for all Conditions

Loctite Go2 Gel contains a revolutionary FLEXTEC® formulation that bonds multi-materials when projects or repairs require higher viscosity, tremendous bond strength, and resistance to extreme conditions. It is gap-filling and ideal for bonds subject to harsh or extreme conditions or for situations where constant flexing is a problem. It can be used indoors and outdoors, has excellent adhesion and high initial grab that cures quickly. Loctite Go2 Gel dries clear, is dishwasher safe and has excellent resistance to vibration, impact, moisture, UV and extreme temperatures, offering long reliability anywhere it is used.

Step by step

HOW TO USE:

Step 1: Safety Precautions

Well-ventilated area, gloves.

Step 2: Preparation

Use between 5°C and 40°C. Protect work area. Surfaces must be clean and free of grease, dust and other contaminants. For improved adhesion, abrade very smooth surfaces (such as metal) prior to cleaning. Remove cap.

Step 2: Application

Apply thin layer of adhesive to one surface. Immediately position and press parts firmly together within 5 minutes. For difficult bonds, clamp parts or use tape to hold pieces together. Do not move or use parts for at least 2 hours. Full bond strength is achieved in 24 hours. Cure times will increase with lower temperatures and humidity and if bonding two non-porous surfaces. 

For Gap-Filling:
 Apply in a thick layer to fill gaps up to 5mm max. Fix or clamp the items together for 1-3 hours and do not touch or move them. In 24 hours, 70% of full adhesion and bond strength is achieved. Cure time is 24 hours for every 2mm of adhesive. 

To Get High Initial Grip:
 Apply on both surfaces in thin and even layers. Leave for 3-5 minutes. Use as a contact cement. After, GO2 gel has become tacky, bring the items together immediately and press firmly. Fixation is not necessary in many cases. Note that final strengths decrease when used as a contact glue. 

Two Non-Porous Surfaces:
 Bonding two non-porous surfaces can result in a slower cure time and is generally not recommended. If bonding two non-porous surfaces, surfaces can be wetted using a damp cloth, taking care to avoid wetness, pooling water or drop formation, to optimize cure time.

Step 3: Cleanup

Clean tools and adhesive residue immediately with mineral spirits. Cured adhesive may be carefully cut away using a sharp-edged tool.
