Tips and tricks:
The toothpick trick:
To avoid spreading glue around the surface when you glue it, try putting a toothpick into the glue strip and press firmly. The toothpick will keep the height you need and keep the glue from spreading. Give it a go..
What is porous material?
Porous materials are materials that let liquids and/or gasses pass through them – either partially or totally (e.g. wood, fiber glass, cork, brick…).
Non-porous material, on the other hand, doesn’t let any liquids and gasses get through (e.g. glass, metals, plastics).
Cleaning with cards
When you've finished gluing, take a playing card, fold it slightly and scrape it along the edges of the glued object and surface, to scrape up any leftover glue. It's an easy method of removing any unwanted residues! Quite easy, really.
How much do I need?
To get the perfect bond with the perfect strength, we recommend using between 200 to 400g of Pattex glue per square meter.
If you're using a cartridge, a good idea is to cut the nozzle with a triangular forcep, for a V-shaped edge to the nozzle. It makes it easier to control the flow of glue when you apply it.
- Cartridge 300ml
- Available in transparent
Store in a cool, dry and frost free place. Storage period is 12 months in unopened container. Any left-over product will remain usable for up to 6 months after use, providing that the red cap is tightly secured onto the nozzle before storage.
Step by step
1. Before applying the glue, make sure the gluing surface is clean, dry and free from grease and loose material.
2. If you use a cartridge, open it with a cutter then fix the nozzle and cut it at the width needed. Then, place the cartridge in the pistol.
3. Depending on the size and shape of the object you want to glue, apply beads or drops to the back of the object you want to glue. You just need to glue 1 of the 2 surfaces.
4. After mounting the object, if you are not satisfied of the positioning, you have still 10 minutes to make adjustments. And once the position of the object is right, press firmly to ensure a proper bond.
5. Use a wet sponge to easily wipe away any excess glue.
6. At a temperature of between +5°C and +25°C, wait 24 hours (up to 48 hours for heavy objects) so that the bond reaches its final strength.
