Aptbond B3 primer
Aptbond B3 is a single-part priming agent for use in bonding cast polyurethane elastomers to metal substrates at low processing temperatures.
The chemistry and formulating detail produce excellent affinity to a wide range of metallic, ceramic and polymeric substrates.
Method of Use
- Use only in well ventilated areas.
- The key to the success of any bonding procedure is the care taken over substrate preparation.
- Degrease the substrate with acetone or other suitable solvent.
- Roughen the surface by abrasion or preferably grit blasting.
- Finally, wipe again with clean solvent to remove any loose debris or dust from the surface after abrasion.
- The primer is best applied by brushing. One thin coat is usually sufficient.
- If required the primer may be diluted up to 50% by volume using M.E.K. or Toluene.
- After application, the primer should be left to dry for a minimum of one hour before over-casting with polyurethane.
- In a controlled environment, the primer will remain active for a period of 72 hours.
- Full bond potential will be developed after a period of seven days.
- It is strongly recommended that customers conduct their own preliminary trials to assess performance and suitability of the product.
Store between 15°C and 25°C in tightly lidded containers. Avoid prolonged exposure to air when not in use.
