Preparation Of Surface
First of all, we cannot overstate the significance of guaranteeing that you appropriately prepare the bonding surfaces. In partcular, the two surfaces that you will bond must be smooth, dry, clean, and free from every single surface contaminants and loose particles.
For new, non-contaminated, and smooth surfaces, we suggest that you apply an undercoat primer-sealer to create a moisture barrier, in order to form a bond. Also, make sure that you let the sealers fully cure and dry before applying the adhesive.
Meanwhile, for plasterboard, prepare the area by clearing off any loose, fine residue from the surface, or else the adhesives won’t bond. In addition, you should sand any exposed holes or joins to a smooth, level surface.
On the other hand, to prepare non-smooth, bare metals, or heavily contaminated surfaces, you should first abrade the surfaces. We also prescribe utilizing abrading disks, used on an angle grinder. This is certainly a fast and efficient technique for preparing surfaces.
Also, this procedure will expel any surface contaminants like rust, oxides, solder, or harder buildups like such as old paint. You should then clear off loose particles before you clean the surfaces.
To get rid of greases, oils, and mold releasing agents from surfaces and offer a solid keying surface to the adhesive tape, we suggest utilizing uniquely mixed hydrocarbon type surface cleaners. In general, the cleaner evaporates without leaving a residue to the surface. Finally, we recommend a last wipe-down with a clean, solvent moistened cloth.
