High Strength Multipurpose Adhesive Description
SikaBond is a high strength contact adhesive that will not slump on vertical surfaces. It can be used as a one way liquid adhesive, or a two way contact adhesive, on a variety of surfaces.
SikaBond can be used on most substrates due to its excellent adhesion. These include:
Floor and wall panels.
Wood, plasterboard and chipboard.
Aluminium, iron and steel.
Concrete, cement sheeting and masonry.
One component ready to use.
Fast drying time.
Easy to use.
High adhesion strength.
Stored in the original sealed packaging at temperatures of between 5 C and 35 C, this material will keep for at least twelve (12) months.
Instructions for Use
All surfaces must be clean, sound, dry and free of oil, grease and surface contamination. Thoroughly remove all loose particles and dust. Any loose flaking must be removed and light sanding is recommended.
One Way Method
This method is recommended for heavier panels or where load or stress is expected. Apply a 4 to 6mm bead of SikaBond using a cartridge gun, making sure the beads are no more than 45cm apart. Bring both substrates immediately together and clamp, nail or screw for a minimum of 24 hours. For butt joints use adhesive on both panel edges.
Two Way Method
Apply adhesive as in one way method, bring together substrates, and press firmly over entire surface to transfer adhesive. Then pull apart. Allow adhesive to tack off for 3 to 5 minutes depending on weather conditions, reposition the objects and press together firmly. The surfaces should be tapped together with a hammer and a padded block to ensure maximum contact. Maximum bond strength will be achieved in 12 to 72 hours, depending on substrates and weather. Heavy panels may require temporary mechanical fastening until maximum strength is achieved.
Clean all tools and equipment immediately after use with Sika Colma Cleaner. Hardened material can only be removed by mechanical means.
