Kisling ergo® 1452 Glass/Metal Bonding set (ergo 1451 Gel + ergo 1093 Activator) is a medium viscous, toughened and impact resistant two-component system, which is suitable for all applications where glass, ceramic, metal or a combination of these materials is involved. The product is made up of ergo.®1451 gel and the activator 1093 that when used together can bond even materials with different thermal elongation coefficients.The product will only work effectively when used in combination with the accelerator ergo.®1093. The product cures within approx. 20 seconds (at 23°C) It may be used also for magnetic materials (ferrites)
If required mark opposing surfaces to ensure correct alignment, clean thoroughly and then dry with a clean cloth or heat with a hot air gun to remove any moisture, if glass let glass cool.
Squeeze activator capsule between fingers until the inner glass tube breaks. The free flowing activator now moves to the felt tip. Remove the paper cap.
Now apply the activator to one of the surfaces that are to be bonded (normally glass). As the activator is solvent free it requires no flashing off time.
Cut off the tip of the adhesive bag. Apply a thin and even layer of the bonder to the other surface (normally metal). Now, under constant pressure, press the metal surface onto the area of the glass that has been pre-treated with activator. Remove excess bonder immediately with a clean cloth. 50 % of bond strength will be achieved after 15 to 20 minutes.
Important: Avoid use on glass surfaces that have been heated by the sun or by other means. The surfaces to be bonded must have compatible contours, the adhesive has no gap filling characteristics.
