Mixing Instructions

Part A 1. For high shear mixers heat resin to approximately 40C to lower viscosity for improved mixing. Pre-heating is not necessary for planetary mixers but may be beneficial. 2. While mixing, add and disperse filler in steps until all filler has been added. Continue mixing until a smooth, uniform paste has been achieved. Part B 1. Charge aromatic amine eutectic into high shear mixer and begin stirring at medium speed. 2. Slowly add EPIKURE Curing Agent 3234 while mixing. Continue mixing for several minutes to assure a uniform blend has been achieved. This formulation is a basic starting point and can be modified with other filler types, depending on cost/performance requirements. Pigment may be incorporated into either or both portions for the purpose of color coding. As with all pigments, their effect on the performance of the final, cured product should be investigated prior to production approval.

Application Instructions

All surfaces to be bonded should be free of dirt, grease, oil or other contaminants to ensure maximum adhesion. For optimum adhesion it is recommended to roughen bonding surfaces. This can be accomplished with abrasive media appropriate for the materials being bonded (such as medium grit emery paper, abrasive disks, grit blasting, wire brushes, etc.). Abrasion should always be followed by degreasing to remove contaminants and loose particles. Chemical etching is another method to provide a rough surface for improved adhesion. Thoroughly mix the adhesive components and apply by spreading a thin film over the surface to be bonded. Maintain light pressure during cure for optimum bonding.
