How To Apply
All you need is the kit as supplied and your preferred method of application, such as a trowel or spatula. You'll need to mix the amounts as provided below, then apply to the required area.
By weight: 5 parts of adhesive A to 1 part of agent B
By volume: 3.9 parts of adhesive A to 1 part of agent B
Place fresh or refurbished aluminium sheet in position and hold there using a press, or clamps and battens for at least 6 hours (extremely cold conditions may extend cure time considerably).
The adhesive will then have set-up sufficiently to hold the panel in position, but full cure will require up to 24 hours. Do not mix more adhesive than is required for the area to be bonded. The pot life of a 100 gram mix is 90 minutes, but a 1 litre mix will thicken in considerably less time (about 45 minutes).
