PSA550 Bonding Applications and curing Process

  • PSA550 may be applied by brush, roller or any suitable coating device.
    • Thinning if required may be done with suitable solvent.
  • Both surfaces to be bonded should be thoroughly cleaned with a suitable cleaning solvent and the adhesive should be applied to them and allowed to dry either
    in room temperature or at an elevated temperature.
    • The length of drying time will depend on the solvent used, adhesive thickness and temperature it is exposed to.
      • The recommended adhesive thickness is between 1 to 4mm.
  • After the solvent has completely evaporated from the adhesive, the surfaces to be bonded should be firmly pressed together and the adhesive should be allowed to cure. For the recommended solvent please contact Silicone Solutions 01204 863290
  • Typical cure rates at room temperature (21°C to 25°C) will require 3-7 days for the catalysed adhesive to develop maximum strength.
    • The cure time can be shortened by elevating the temperature to a maximum 165°C.
    • A typical shortened cure cycle is 24 hours at 25°C followed by 24 hours at 100°C.
