How to Apply:

LOCTITE Instant Adhesives are applied thinly to one side. The parts are immediately pressed together for 5 to 60 seconds, depending on the material.

To achieve optimum results when using LOCTITE Instant Adhesive, ensure that all surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from oil or grease and fit together exactly. If necessary, clean the surfaces to be bonded with acetone before the application.
