  • Best Practices for Henkel Armstrong A-31

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Application

      Easy to work and apply

    2. Mixing

      Mix three parts A-31 Part A with two part A-31 part B by weight, or two parts Part A with one part B by volume.

    3. Curing

      At room temperature 70% to 80% of the ultimate strength is attained within 16 to 20 hours (75°F). For faster cure, subject glue line to temperature of 165°F for two hours. Maximum chemical, moisture and heat resistance properties are obtained with a heat cure.
