Surface Preparation

 All bonding surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned, degreased and dried. For plastic surfaces, remove mold release if any.

 

Preparation of adhesive

 Always stir each part thoroughly first. Proportion accurately and mix slowly to avoid entrapping air.

Magna-Tac M773 Part A is colored red; Part B is colored Amber. Mix equal amounts (by volume) and stir until the color of the mixture is uniform.

Note: Pot life can be lengthened substantially if shallow mixing vessels are used or smaller batches are mixed. Cover mixed material to prevent water absorption.

Mixed adhesive may be applied with paint roller, brush or conventional spray equipment, etc. Apply enough mixed adhesive to leave about 4-6 mils in the final glue line. This may be accomplished by coating 4-6 mils on one surface only or by coating 2-3 mils on each surface.

 

  Cure Time

 

Room Temperature

 At room temperature, assemblies can be handled in approximately 8-14 hours. Magna-Tac M773 develops 85% of its maximum strength in 24-48 hours.

NOTE: The bond continues to advance in strength for approximately one week.
