Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) TU-801
When curing CONATHANE TU-801 at 80C(176°F) or above, the recommended primer is CONAP® AD-1147 or AD-1147-C.
It is important that all dirt, grease, and oil be removed from surfaces prior to applying the primers.
Pour mixed material into molds or fixtures in a manner to avoid trapping air bubbles or pockets, and cure as recommended. Porous molds should be properly sealed prior to using. Contact Cytec's customer service department or your local Regional Sales Manager for assistance.
If parts are to be demolded, a quality CONAP® mold release should be applied prior to pouring.
CONATHANE® TU-801 can be processed by batch mixing or by the use of automatic metering, mixing and dispensing equipment. Specific recommendations can be made by the customer service department of Cytec or by your local Regional Sales Manager. The following procedure is recommended for batch processing: Containers used for weighing or mixing should be metal, glass or plastic. Mixing rods should be plastic or glass also. Avoid paper containers and wooden sticks!
Use a separate container for mixing with enough space (usually 2 to 3 times the volume of material being mixed) to allow for expansion during degassing. If void free castings are not necessary, the degassing step may be eliminated.
Weigh the correct proportions of the two components together. MIX THOROUGHLY, and degas, if desired, at 28-29 inches of mercury to remove entrapped air caused by mixing.
Equipment may be cleaned with Methyl Ethyl Ketone or other hydrocarbon solvents.
