Bonding conditions: The adhesive substrate and ambient temperature should ideally be at a minimum of 20?C. The moisture content of wood materials should be uniform and should not exceed 12%.
Spreading: SIAbond D3 can be applied by serrated glue spreader, roller or brush. Application is normally to one surface at a rate of 150g/m?.
Open assembly times: Maximum of 15 minutes depending on the materials to be bonded. Assembly times are dependant on ambient conditions and substrates used.
Pressing: Pressure must be applied whilst the adhesive is still wet and should be a minimum of 30 psi (2Kg/cm?) depending on the type of wood and structure.
Press times: Press times required depend on adhesive coating and upon substrates. Typical figures are:
Hot Press: Decorative laminate/plywood 80?C / 1 min
Cold Press: Decorative laminate/plywood 20?C / 20 mins
Colour: White, clear when dry
Minimum film forming temperature: 2?C
Specific gravity: approx. 1.04
pH: approx. 3
Equipment should be cleaned with warm or cold water whilst the adhesive is still wet.
Storage and Shelf Life
The adhesive should be stored in a cool, dry area at temperatures between 5?C and 30?C. Under these conditions the product has a shelf life of 12 months when stored in the original, unopened container.
