  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) K-230

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Apply to dry oil-free surfaces. Remove mold releases from plastic surfaces. When bonding metals, degrease and dry. Chemical etching the metal surface gives optimum results.

    2. Application

      Apply adhesive with spatula or stiff brush to each surface. Apply light pressure to ensure good wetting and contact of the bonded surfaces.

    3. Mixing

      Mix equal length beads from the convenient two-tube kit, or in bulk packages mix 100 pbw, Part A and 45 pbw, Part B.

    4. Curing

      Pot Life of mixture is 60 minutes at 25°C(77°F), and cure is achieved in 24-36 hours at 25°C (77°F). Cure can be accelerated by heating at 65 C (149°F) for 2 hours.

    5. Clean-Up

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