Preparation & Application
No adhesive will develop full bond adhesion strength without the surface substrate being carefully prepared to give mechanically sound, clean surface.
Concrete and masonry
The surface must be prepared by mechanical means such as grinding or grit blasting to remove any weak surface laitance or deletrious friable material.
The substrate should have an inherent tensile strength greater than 1·0 N/mm2.
Pull-off tests should be carried out prior to application of the adhesive.
If the substrate is uneven, then the surface shall be re-profiled with a levelling mortar. Check for evenness of substrate.
Timber surfaces should be prepared by sanding and planing with all dust removed under vacuum.
These should be grit blasted to Swedish Standard SA 21/2, equivalent to BS 7079-A1 and de-greased immediately prior to application. Where corrosion is absent, wire brushing to a clean, bright surface may be adequate. Care must be taken not to polish the rust.
Mix by adding the dark grey hardener to the white resin and mix for 3 to 5 minutes with a low speed drill and spiral mixing head (EPIMR4 100). Mix until a uniform consistency and colour is obtained.
In cold weather it is advisable to store the product unopenend in a warm environment for several hours before mixing.
The mixed adhesive must be placed within its pot life. Apply the adhesive to the prepared substrate with a grooved trowel or by gloved hands. Apply material to both surfaces before joining together.
In some cases, only one face needs to be coated with adhesive, provided that at least 3 mm thickness is applied (e.g. segmental bridge construction).
Plate bonding Push the glued plates onto the glued substrate within the open life of the material.
Apply a hard rubber roller to squeeze the adhesive from both sides of the plate edge and ensure no air voids.
Roller to achieve a bond line of approximately 2 - 3 mm thickness. Remove the surplus adhesive from the sides of the plate.
