Instructions 50ml dual side by side epoxy type cartridges
Last Updated: 30/01/2012
Using epoxy type dual cartridges 1:1, 2:1, 4:1 and 10:1 ratio's.
  1. Always read and follow the health & safety instructions on the adhesive packaging and material safety data sheet. Use the appropriate personal protection equipment. Good practice is to wear eye protection and gloves when handling any adhesive. Understand the pot life (usable time) of the material as well as the cure time.
  2. Ensure that the material is at room temperature. If the material has been stored in a cold place (i.e. a cool warehouse during winter), it can be too thick to mix and to dispense easily and correctly. Let it come up to ambient temperature before using. Some materials will become too thin (too low a viscosity) to mix and dispense correctly if stored in a very warm place. Again, bring to room temperature before use. On the other hand, some materials which are quite thick (highly viscous) at room temperature, and therefore difficult to dispense, can be gently warmed prior to use. If in any doubt, please consult the material manufacturer.
  3. Remove the cartridge from the original packaging and place into the dispensing gun.
  4. When holding the cartridge vertical with the cap at the top, unscrew the cap or break the seal.
  5. Gently squeeze the dispensing gun trigger, and make sure that both of the material components are being pushed out evenly. Wipe off any excess material, and twist on the static mixing nozzle.
  6. By squeezing the trigger, dispense the material components through the static mixing nozzle until blended material reaches the end. It is recommended that the first 1-2 ml from a new mixer be discarded (about 15cm of a 3mm diameter bead). The material now dispensed from the tip will be adequately and properly mixed ready for use.
  7. It is acceptable to store partially used cartridges with the static mixing nozzle attached. A new one will be needed next time the cartridge is used. Alternatively, remove the used static mixing nozzle, wipe off excess material and replace the cap, being very careful to avoid any cross contamination.
