    Business Information
    Shelf Life Details The shelf life of L7132K is six months when stored at 55-80°F (15-27°C) in unopened factory sealed containers. Once the two-part system is blended, it has a pot life of eight hours., Boscodur 24T should be stored in a sealed container. Once opened it should be nitrogen purged to prevent contamination from moisture in the air. L7132R has a shelf life of at least 9 months if stored in an unopened container. Do not freeze.
    Shelf Life Temperature (°F) 55 to 80

  • Best Practices for Bostik L7132K

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Application

      Adhesive can be applied via direct roll, reverse roll, gravure, or any coater common to the industry. This adhesive can also be sprayed.

      Apply 100-150 g/m² (wet) adhesive to the least porous laminating surface and evaporate the solvent by standard drying techniques. Mate the secondary substrate under pressure at 110-212°F (41-100°C).

    2. Mixing

      Boscodur 24T should be added to L7132R in accordance with the mixing ratio (1:16) and blended to a homogenous solution (solvent dilutions, where applicable, should be made immediately after the Boscodur 24T addition).

    3. Curing

      To cure the part, the adhesive should be held at a minimum of 190°F (88°C) for at least 4 minutes. Vacuum pressure should be held at a minimum of 15 in Hg (51 kPa), 20 in HG (68 kPa) is preferred.

    4. Clean-Up

      Recommended clean up is with MEK/Toluene solution.
