    1. Curing

      The cure rate will vary depending on air temperature, relative humidity, substrate type and bond line thickness. Cure rate is more rapid on wood (moisture-rich substrate) than on plastic.

    2. Clean-Up

      Allow product to solidify. Remove uncured waxy material (usually within the first 20 minutes after application) by scraping with a putty knife or similar tool. For cured material, remove by cutting or sanding. Do not use heat or flame to remove adhesive.

Set Time Test Methods
Set Time Test Method
Fast
2.00 min The minimum amount of time required between when the bond is made and when it will support a 5 psi tensile load., Open times and set times are based on a room temperature environment. High temperatures will lengthen open times and set times while lower environmental temperatures will shorten open times and set times.
