  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) Conathane UC-43

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Mixing

      Mix the UC-43 Part A and UC-43 Part B in the ratio specified. Components may be preheated up to 60°C if reduced viscosity is required. If hand mixing, degas at >27 in. Hg vacuum before use.

    2. Curing

      The cure schedules based on time after the unit reaches the specified temperature and are recommendations only. The user is responsible for determining the optimum cure conditions for their application.
