What is the proper surface preparation for gluing wood to metal using G2?
Make sure that the surfaces are clean, sanded, and free from contaminates. Best results are achieved by adding some silica thickener to the G2. Also, apply only enough clamp pressure to close the joint. Over clamping will squeeze out the G2, resulting in a weak bond.
How do I correctly prepare the surface?
See Technical Data Sheet or container for surface prep information.
What is the approximate surface area coverage for the product I am considering?
See Technical Data Sheet or container for coverage areas.
What is the minimum application temperature for epoxy?
Different products have different minimum tolerable application temperatures. Please see the individual product pages on the website or the Technical Data Sheets for the product.
Can I use the hardener from one of your epoxy systems with the resin from another?
No. Epoxy resin systems are two-part products where each part is designed to go with the other in the specified proportions.
How much clamping pressure do I use for an epoxy glue joint?
Epoxy adhesives, being gap-filling glues, need only enough clamping to close the joint. Unlike other glues, epoxy requires low pressure and a proper film thickness of resin to make a proper glue joint.
