  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) Easypoxy K-230

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      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. See ELANTAS PDG Technical Bulletin TI-3000 Surface Preparation Guide for additional information.

    2. Application

      Apply adhesive with a spatula or stiff brush to both joining surfaces. Apply light pressure to ensure proper wetting and contact of bonded surfaces.

      If crystallization has occurred place the container in a 49 - 71°C / 120 - 160°F water bath until material is again pliable.

    3. Mixing

      Mix equal length beads of K-230 Part A Resin and K-230 Part B Curative from the tube kits or at 100:45 by weight until a uniform color is achieved.

    4. Curing

      Cure 24 - 36 hours at 25°C / 77°F – or – 2 hour at 65°C / 149°F The cure schedules above are based on time after the unit reaches the specified temperature and are recommendations only. The user is responsible for determining the optimum cure conditions for his application.

    5. Clean-Up

      Clean equipment before the adhesive hardens, a good hydrocarbon solvent is recommended
