Tips and tricks:

Too much glue?

Excess Pattex Contact Adhesive can be removed with Acetone, Benzine or Tangit Cleaner.

  1. Soak a cloth with Acetone, Benzine or Tangit Cleaner.
  2. Wipe off the excess glue with the soaked cloth. Take the necessary precausions if a danger of ignition exists. Ventillate the area well.

Need an alternative for a pressing roller?

  1. Contact glues need as high a pressure as possible for a few seconds, to ensure the best bonding performance.
  2. Professionals use a pressing roller, but a rolling pin, bottle or something similar can also be used to evenly distribute pressure over the bonded parts.

The fine print

Step by step

1. Ensure that the surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from oil, grease, wax and paint. Roughening the spots that have to be glued, this will give the glue more grip.

 

2. Apply glue to both surfaces and let it dry for approximately 10-15 minutes, in order for the solvents to evaporate. Don’t use too much glue; a thin layer will be sufficient. Use a spatula to spread the glue evenly on the surface to be bonded.

3. Carefully align the materials and press firmly together. This adhesive cannot be repositioned as this affects the strength of the bond. Apply as high a pressure as possible for a few seconds.

4. To make sure the glue bonds evenly, professionals sometimes use a roller. A rolling pin or bottle does the trick as well.

5. Full bonding strength is reached after 60 minutes.
