What materials is this product suitable for?
How to use this product
Surfaces to be bonded must be close fitting, free from dust, dry and clean from grease.
Shake bottle before use
Apply adhesive liberally to one surface only, position surfaces and press together while still wet. Immediately clamp for 30 minutes for softwoods and 1 hour for hardwoods. Alternatively, low clamping pressures (50lbs/in2) can be used with softwoods; higher pressures are recommended for hardwoods (100 – 150lbs/in2). Do not stress joint for 12 hours.
Wipe off excess adhesive while still wet with a damp cloth. If the wood is to be stained, any residual Aquadhere left on the timber surface may prevent the stain from taking to the wood.
Maximum strength is achieved after 12 hours, but longer in cold, damp conditions, or when used on dense timbers.
Clean all tools with water before adhesive is allowed to dry. If dry, soak in water until adhesive is soft.
Cure slows significantly in humid, cold conditions.
1L covers approx. 5m2
To fill small gaps, Aquadhere can be mixed with sawdust.
Longer clamping times may be required for joints under high stress, or alternatively use 308 High Stress Wood Glue.
Avoid contaminating Aquadhere Exterior with iron and steel, eg nails, etc. Aquadhere contaminated with rust (iron oxide) will stain brown/black in the presence of tannins in many woods.
Painting or varnishing constructions made of porous softwoods will improve the resistance of bonds to water exposure.
On very porous surfaces applying a thin layer to each side and allowing to soaking in before applying a second layer to one side only may result in a stronger bond.
If you are gluing over a larger surface, try using a small roller to aid in application.
For cleaning surfaces prior to application of adhesive, if the surface is porous, we would recommend using Selleys Liquid Sugar Soap. If the surface is non-porous eg glass or metal, firstly clean the surface with mineral turpentine and then again with methylated spirits. If there is old, difficult to remove residue such as old paint, we recommend using paint stripper such as Selleys Kwik Strip Smart. Ensure the surface is dry before applying the product.
Keep a canister of Selleys Hand Kleen Wipes nearby for a quick and effective cleanup.
