  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) K-45

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

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

    2. Application

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

    3. Mixing

      Mix equal part by weight or by volume to a uniform color.

    4. Curing

      Pot Life of mixture is 4-6 minutes @ 25°C. Gelation is 10 minutes @ 25°C, and cure is achieved in 24 hours at 25°C. Cure can be accelerated with heating @ 65°C for 1 hour

    5. Clean-Up

      Clean equipment before the adhesive hardens

      a good hydrocarbon solvent is recommended.
