  • Best Practices for Henkel Loctite E-308

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      For optimum bond strength, substrate surfaces must be dry and preferably clean. Chemical treatment of metallic surfaces gives optimum durability, but a simple abrade and degrease process may often be adequate. The high bond strength achieved even on oily surfaces is sometimes beneficial where removal of oil is not practical.

    2. Clean-Up

      Unreacted epoxy can be cleaned using acetone, isopropanol, or MEK.
