Surfaces must be clean and free from any loose matter. Surfaces may be damp. Apply Home Projects and Repair Adhesive to one surface. Note: For faster bonding, dampen surfaces lightly with water before applying adhesive.
Press surfaces together within 5 minutes after applying adhesive. For better tackiness, pull surfaces back apart for 3-5 minutes, then rejoin. Surfaces may be adjusted for 10 minutes after joining. Adhesive will reach initial cure in one hour and full cure in 6-8 hours.
Sealing A Tear
If ends cannot be overlapped, then lay ends as close together as possible. Lay a bead of glue over entire tear and a little past each end. Smooth bead so that it forms a thin film on both sides of tear. Wipe away excess with a dry cloth.
Bonding Pieces End-to-End
Find a suitable piece to use as a "splint" to reinforce the repaired joint. Apply glue to the splint over the area that will be in contact with the repaired piece. Apply glue to both ends of joint. Join all pieces together as desired and brace or clamp.
Plastics, Metals, and Non-Porous Surfaces
Plastics, metals, and non-porous surfaces that can be bonded with HOME PROJECTS include aluminum, steel, brass, PVC, fiberglass, rubber, neoprene, nylon, ABS, and polystyrene. HOME PROJECTS cannot be used to bond polyethylene or polypropylene. Apply a bead of glue to one of the surfaces to be bonded. Spread the bead to cover the surface to be bonded. Join the surfaces together, then pull them apart and let stand for 5 minutes before pressing back together. For a quicker bond, mist the surfaces lightly with water before rejoining. Allow 1 hour before light use and 8 hours before normal use.
Uncured adhesive may be removed by wiping with a clean cloth. Dried adhesive may be removed by scraping.
