Directions for Use
The adhesive substrate and ambient temperature should ideally be at a minimum of 20°C, along with this the moisture content of wood materials should be uniform and should not exceed 12%. The relative humidity should be between 60-70%.
This PVA adhesive can be applied by serrated glue spreader, roller or brush, and the application is normally to one surface at a rate of 150g/m².
Open assembly times
The adhesive open time is typically around 15 minutes depending on the substrates being bonded. Assembly times are dependent on ambient conditions and substrates used.
Pressure must be applied whilst the adhesive is still wet and should be a minimum of 30 psi (2Kg/cm²) depending on the type of wood and structure.
Press times required depend on adhesive coating and upon substrates. Typical figures are:
- Hot Press: Decorative laminate/plywood 50°C / 8 mins
- Cold Press: Decorative laminate/plywood 20°C / 20 mins
The drying type for this glue is dependent upon substrate, coat weight, temperature and humidity. Please note thought that this wood glue is considered a fast drying adhesive.
All equipment used should be cleaned with warm or cold water whilst the adhesive is still wet.
This adhesive should be protected from extremes of temperature in a controlled environment between 5°C and 30°C, and away from direct sunlight. Do not stand this adhesive on a cold concrete floor.
Low temperatures can result in irreparable separation of the adhesive.
Stored under the correct conditions, in original, unopened containers, the product will have a shelf life of 12 months.
