Joints should be smooth and well fitted. The surface to be bonded must be close fitting and free from dirt, grease or any other contamination that may interfere with the adhesion. Moisture content of timber should be 5 to 15%. Abrading the surface of the joint before assemble is recommended.
- Apply the glue using a stiff brush to one surface only.
- Assemble and clamp (pin or screw) the joint whilst glue is wet.
- Keep the joint under pressure until set.
- A damp cloth can be used to remove excess wet adhesive.
Clean down with warm water, with a little detergent added is recommended. Care should be taken to avoid drying out on equipment as water resistance makes cleaning difficult.
