APPLICATION METHOD

  • Surfaces to be bonded should be free from oil; grease; dust and dirt and should be dry and properly leveled .
  • For best results, roughen the surfaces to be bonded.
  • Stir the contents of the container before use.
  • Apply even coats of STIKOL first on first non-porous surface, and then on porous surface for e.g. apply first on laminate and then on plywood.
  • Do not allow adhesive to dry, and bring both the surfaces in contact, with proper alignment, and start pressing from one side by using wet squeezed cloth and ensuring uniform contact. Pressure can be given by using clamps ;weight , masking tape etc.
  • Excess adhesive which comes out from edges should be wiped off with squeezed wet cloth.
  • To get best results, bonded surfaces are to be kept under pressure for 24 hrs.
  • If required, pressure can be released after 8 - 10 Hrs and the bonded assembly can be put to use.
  • In case of highly porous surfaces like particleboard and MDF, it is advised that, a thin coat of STIKOL is applied by pressure on the surface and allowed to dry. This will fill the pores of the surface. After drying, light sanding is to be done for getting smooth leveled surface and then bonding is carried out as per the method shown above.

  • Approx.34 – 36 Sq.ft. / kg. (applied on both the surfaces)

ADVANTAGES

  • Solvent free, Non-hazardous, Non-flammable, Eco-friendly.
