  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) Conathane EN-2553

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Mixing

      The two components should be mixed thoroughly in metal or glass containers using metal or glass stirrers. Degassing of the mixed material should be accomplished at room temperature to 40ºC (104ºF) at 1-5 mm of mercury vacuum. Containers should be large enough to allow for frothing during degassing. Any material or container that could introduce water into the system should be avoided

      Mix and degas individual components thoroughly prior to use. CONATHANE® EN-2553 Part A may crystallize upon storage or during shipment. If this has occurred, heat to 60°C, mix thoroughly, and cool to room temperature before processing.

    2. Mixing

      Mix the EN-2553 Part A and EN-2553 Part B in the ratio specified above until homogeneous. Components may be preheated up to 60°C if reduced viscosity is required. If hand-mixing, degas at >27 in. Hg before use.

    3. Curing

      Cure 7 days at 25°C / 77°F – or – 16 hours at 80°C / 176°F.The cure schedules above are 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 his application
