  • Best Practices for Loxeal 30-55

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Clean and degrease surfaces to bond with Loxeal Cleaner 10.

    2. Application

      Apply enough product on one surface and apply Loxeal Activator on the other surface. Put together surfaces and put pressure unitl adhesion is reached. Clean the excess of product with organic solvent. For gaps over 0,50 mm put Loxeal Activator on both surfaces. Wait 24 hours to put pieces under stress conditions.

    3. Curing

      Heat can be used to perform the curing when surfaces conditioning with primer (Activator 20) is not desiderable. Typical heat curing conditions consist of heating parts and maintaining the bond line at temperature given below for the time specified. Optimum conditions for heat cure should be determined on actual assemblies.
