Stykra A2000 acrylic glue application instructions

Preparation:

  1. Ensure surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from dust, grease and oils.
  2. Consult the material safety data sheet (MSDS) before using for the first time.

Application (two part A & B)

  1. Parts A & B should be stored and used at room temperature (16°C – 20°C).
  2. Thoroughly mix an approximate 20:1 ratio of Part A & Part B. Allow to stand briefly, allowing any larger air bubbles to escape.
  3. Apply the mixed ture to your acrylic substrate, ensuring you use your mixed glue within 20 minutes of mixing Parts A & B. Any more time will weaken the final bond effectiveness.
  4. Remove any excess adhesive at this point, before the structural glue starts to cure.
  5. Use a suitable cleaner such as Stykra EXT Surface Cleaner
  6. The adhesive will set in 1.5-2 hours and withstand light handling.
  7. Hardening will continue over the following days. You can increase joint strength further by heating at 80°C for 3-4 hours.

Application (two part cartridge)

  1. Remove cap. Repeatedly press the gun trigger until both parts are dispensing before attaching mixer nozzle. This ensures you mix equal amounts of adhesive and activator.
  2. Apply the mixed adhesive to one surface.
  3. Remove any excess adhesive at this point, before the structural glue starts to cure.
  4. Use a suitable cleaner such as Stykra EXT Surface Cleaner
  5. The adhesive will set in 1.5-2 hours and withstand light handling.
  6. Hardening will continue over the following days. You can increase joint strength further by heating at 80°C for 3-4 hours.
  7. Full cure and ultimate bond strength will take 24 hours to achieve.
