MIX2FIX® GP Gel Adhesive

Technical Data

MIX2FIX GP Gel Adhesive is a two-component, non-sag, epoxy adhesive/repair paste. It is 100% solids, contains no solvents, and is extremely easy to mix and apply. This product incorporates a blue dye, which becomes clear when the components are correctly mixed.

MIX2FIX GP Gel Adhesive bonds well to most surfaces, and in 24 hours forms a tough bond to a wide variety of substrates, including wood, steel, aluminum, cast iron, fiberglass/GRP, concrete, stone, china, copper, and unglazed ceramic (does not adhere to polyethylene, polypropylene, or PTFE). It is not intended for structural applications. Cured color is Clear.

How to use:
 

To achieve optimum adhesion, surfaces should be sound and cleaned free of contaminants using a solvent wipe. Scuffing or sanding the surface with a 80- to 120-grit emery paper prior to cleaning ensures a good bond. Do not apply mixed product at temperatures below 41°F (5°C).

Using equal portions of the resin and hardener, thoroughly mix at least 2 to 3 minutes until the blue color completely disappears. Avoid mixing air into the material. Do not mix both containers together unless all of the material will be used in one application will be completed within the allowed work life (3 hours for a 100-gm mass). Containers of unmixed material can be resealed for future use.

Evenly apply the mixed adhesive to both surfaces to be joined, taking care to avoid air bubbles. Press the parts together and clamp lightly until the adhesive has gelled and developed handling strength, typically 8 hours at 75˚F (24˚C). Product cures faster at higher temperatures and larger volumes, slower at lower temperatures and in thin sections. Do not apply full load until the adhesive has completely cured.
