Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) Conap AD-1146
High-strength bonds can only be obtained if all surfaces to be bonded are free of moisture, dirt, rust, chemicals, and mold releases. In addition, surfaces to be bonded should be sandblasted, etched, or degreased.
Apply one or two coats of CONAP® AD-1146 with a soft brush, allowing the adhesive to flow on the surface (two coats are required for CONAP® AD-1146-C and CONAP® AD-1146-C-1). Application may also be accomplished by spraying, roller coating, or by doctor blade.
Prior to the application of polyurethane, activate the primer by baking at 82 - 93°C / 180 - 200ºF for 1 - 2 hours.
For spray applications, dilute one part of CONAP® AD-1146 with up to two parts of CONAP® S-1 Solvent. CONAP® AD-1146-C and CONAP® AD-1146-C-1 may be diluted with 30-40% CONAP® S-1 solvent. Two double spray coats should be applied with ½ hour air dry between coats.
Air dry ½ hour between coats and one hour or longer after the final coat.
NOTE: For optimum results, primer dried film thickness should be 0.5 to 1.5 mils. Under no circumstances should film thickness be less than 0.5 mils. Since these coatings contain a solvent, it is important that all residual solvent in the film be removed to obtain high bond strengths. A drying period of ½ hour at 70°C (158°F) is sufficient to accomplish solvent evaporation.
When bonding urethanes to metals, the drying period can be part of the preheat cycle used to bring the mold and part to the desired curing temperature. Preheat temperatures of 90 - 100°C / 194 - 212°F for 2 to 3 hours are not detrimental. The adhesion of the urethane to the primer film is excellent, and the adhesion of the primer to the metal is improved.
