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.
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.
