Surface Preparation:

Surfaces to be bonded must be free of loose dirt, rust, paint, oil and grease. Wirebrushing or sanding will substantially enhance adhesion to smooth surfaces.

Mixing Procedure:

  1. Place the sticks side by side without removing the wrapping. Simultaneously cut equal amounts of each stick with a sharp knife.
  2. Remove wrapping from cut parts.
  3. Roll both parts together in the hands, forming a ‘sausage’.
  4. Roll the ‘sausage’ into a ball and roll out again as a ‘sausage’.
  5. Repeat this operation until all the streaks have disappeared. (Thorough mixing is essential).
  6. Apply by dabbing and wiping ono the application surfaces.
  7. Build up the shape as necessary.
