Application Instructions :-
 
Temperature
Generally the best temperature for bonding adhesive tapes is between +15°C and +30°C. Low temperature application is possible for modified adhesive systems, but there may be a compromise on the ultimate bond strength.  
 
Surface
The surface of the parts must be clean, dry and free of moisture and condensation. The surfaces must also be free of oil, fat, dust and other contaminants. Porous surfaces can be primed to ensure a uniform, stable surface.  
 
Cleaning
The cleaning of the surfaces has to be done with clean cloths together with suitable solvents like alcohol or ethers, to remove dust and oil. For release agents and other contaminants you can use the following solvents: isopropanolwater mixture 50:50, heptane, ethanol, acetone, MEK or other suitable solvents that do not attack the substrate to be bonded. The selected solvent must be checked thoroughly before being used and the safe use of solvents must always be taken into consideration.  
 
Using
Pressure Adhesive tapes are pressure sensitive (PSA’s). The initial application pressure is critical to the ultimate performance of the adhesive tape. The target application pressure is 10-15N/cm², which is best provided by a roller or press. When application only by hand is possible, a firm even and overall pressure is essential and is best provided by use of an applicator or rubber based ‘squeegee’
 
Firmer adhesive classes (such as pure acrylics) require more initial application pressure than soft ones. The full bonding power of hard adhesives is attained between 24 & 72 hours, depending upon the substrates, application pressure and the application environment.
