  • Best Practices for Henkel A-708

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      The surfaces to be bonded should be clean and dry (for critical applications refer to our suggested surface preparation procedures - Bulletin No. 964)

    2. Application

      Apply the adhesive to surfaces to be bonded (preferably both surfaces) and press together.

    3. Mixing

      Thoroughly mix the A-708 prior to use.

      Avoid the introduction of excess air.

    4. Curing

      Light clamping may be used to keep parts in position during curing.

      Cure as desired.
