Best Practices for Henkel E18
Apply a bead of adhesive to one of the bonding surfaces.
Mate the two substrates together and clamp the assembly for 15 minutes or until handling strength is achieved.
Full cure is obtained after 24 hours of adhesive application at room temperature, 23°C (73°F).
The curing temperature may be increased to obtain full cure of the adhesive.
Thoroughly mix the resin and the hardener in a 100:94 ratio by weight or 1:1 by volume, taking care not to introduce excess entrapped air into the bulk material. Do not mix more material than can be applied during the work life of the product. The bonding surfaces should be clean, dry and grease free before applying the adhesive.
Unreacted resin & hardener can be cleaned using acetone, isopropanol or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK).
