Shelf Life

Shelf life is six months from date of shipment when stored at 21-27°C (70-80°F) in original, unopened container.

Features and Benefits

Versatile – bonds low surface energy and difficult thermoplastic substrates, like polycarbonate, without the need for pretreatment; bonds a variety of addition-cured silicone rubbers to a wide variety of substrates.

Durable – provides a strong, durable bond that, in many instances, has strength equal to or greater than the rubber being molded.

Easy to Use – non-settling formula allows for easy application; dries at room temperature to a clear, nearly colorless, film.

Medical Use – formula passes ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity and ISO-10993-10 irritation testing; provides good resistance to autoclave sterilization.
