Systems & Installation
Surfaces to be bonded must be thoroughly clean and dry, for optimum results they should be pre-wiped with ARDEX WA98S solvent. Stir adhesive thoroughly before use. On porous surfaces a second coat of adhesive may be necessary.
Thinning is unnecessary unless the adhesive has thickened due to solvent evaporation, caused by the lid being left open for long periods. Where necessary ARDEX WA98S solvent may be used for thinning to reduce viscosity and aid with flow characteristics.
Use a brush, roller, air driven or airless spray equipment. Apply a thin, even layer of adhesive to both surfaces; brushing in short, quick strokes. Ensure that the spray pattern atomisation is pinhead size. Between 15-60 minutes, the solvent should have evaporated and the adhesive should be ‘tacky’ enough to bond the surfaces together. A useful indication is to touch the surfaces (all over) with a clean finger: if they are ‘sticky’ to the touch, without transferring to your finger, they are ready to bond together. It is imperative that no solvent is trapped between the bond. Position components accurately, as when contact is made, the bond will be immediate. Apply maximum overall instant pressure, taking care to expel any air bubbles, to ensure a complete bond. Use of a hand pressure roller, e.g. a vinyl-flooring roller, provides good direct pressure. A dry adhesive surface may be reactivated by wiping over with ARDEX WA98S solvent. An alternative method is heat reactivation to 80°C. In this case, care must be taken to ensure that all solvent has evaporated before heating.
