Application Instructions

Surfaces should be cleaned prior to application to ensure good bond results. If applying to wood, rub
down with glass paper, dust off to give a ‘KEY’ for the adhesive. Apply evenly to both surfaces with a
comb applicator and press the surfaces together. Rub down with a small wallpaper roller to make sure it
has a good adhesion. Wipe off any excess using a damp sponge. Check assembly after 20 minutes, in
case of movement. Tools can be cleaned in warm water.
