Areas For Use
Bonding mirrors to most common substrates.
Automotive gap filling and sealing
Jointing cladding panels.
As a high quality nail replacement adhesive, even to damp surfaces.
Bonding difficult materials such as specialised polymer systems, metals and fibreglass
Any application requiring high performance, durable bonding of joints.
Applications where resistance to chemical spillage is required (garage forecourts etc).
When fixing mirrors, always provide temporary support until the adhesive has dried (24 hours).
Use in conjunction with mechanical fixings for large mirrors.
Use on overhead mirrors Always use in conjunction with mechanical fixings.
Not for use where joints are constantly immersed in water, or as part of a structural glazing system.
Not for use in aquarium manufacture. Use AQUA MATE
Not for use in conjunction with bitumen, or asphalt. Use WEATHER MATE
Not for use on highly porous surfaces such as new concrete or stonework. Priming is advised or use SILICONE 450.
Not for use on substrates that may bleed oils, solvent or plasticisers.
Yellowing can occur in the dark
All surfaces must be clean and dust free. Surfaces may be damp, but have no standing water.
Cut the tip of the cartridge taking care not to damage the thread. Fix nozzle, cut aperture to required width and apply with a standard sealant gun.
Apply 6mm diameter beads of adhesive direct to back of mirror in vertical strips, spaced at 30-40mm centers. Immediately place mirror in position and secure with good, even pressure with a slight twist action. Provide temporary support (tape) until adhesive has dried (24-48 hours). If required, MIRROR MATE may also be used to seal around mirror 24 hours after fixing.
As a nail replacement (panel) adhesive.
Surfaces must be sound, clean, dry and free from dust, grease, loose material etc.
Prime dusty surfaces with EVERBUILD PVA BOND diluted 1:4 with water and allow to dry.
Apply using a standard sealant gun, cut tip of cartridge, apply nozzle and cut an opening to suite the required bead size.
For bonding heavy items (Plasterboard/worktops/wall panels etc) apply adhesive all the way around the edge of the item (30-50mm from edge) and cover back with beads of adhesive at 300mm intervals. Alternatively, apply adhesive direct to battens and press into place. NOTE.
With heavy items, always provide temporary support until the adhesive dries.
For bonding lightweight items (covings, dado rails, skirting etc) apply adhesive to back of item in one or two continuous beads and press immediately into place.
Where gap filling is required, mark the areas where there is a large gap and apply a thicker bead to these areas.
In all cases, clean up excess adhesive immediately with a damp cloth.
