Our Thixofix contact adhesive is supplied in a 40ml tube. It is a multi-purpose contact adhesive capable of bonding laminated plastics and rubbers to wood, metal, fabric and most other substrates. Thixofix is a gel, similar to non-drip paint, so spreads like butter. It does not spill cutting out the mess normally associated with other contact adhesives.
Before applying our Thixofix contact adhesive, all substates should be abraded and solvent wiped. Surfaces should be clean, dry and free from dust, grease and other contaminates. To mix the adhesive, apply one coat of the adhesive over both surfaces to be bonded taking extra care that all edges and properly coated. Wait for the surfaces to become touch dry (usually around 10-15 minutes). To establish whether the adhesive is in the correct condition for bonding, touch it lightly with you knuckles. Once the adhesive does not transfer to the skin, bonding can take place
Bring the materials very gently together aiming to position them exactly in the desired position. Unlike other contact adhesives, Thixofix allows you to make small adjustments after initial contact. Apply firm even pressure to help secure the bond.
