Timbond PU Rapid is the ultimate fast setting polyurethane adhesive with a bond time of around 5 minutes. This product expands slightly during the curing process and gives exceptionally strong bonds on virtually all materials.
Compliant to D4 specification, Timbond PU Rapid is totally waterproof. Applications include the bonding of most timbers, Timber frame buildings, composite panels and many other construction materials.
Timbond PU Rapid is a moisture curing single part, polyurethane adhesive specifically designed for bonding wood to wood, for the woodworking industry. It can also be used to bond many types of plastic foams and other insulating materials to a wide variety of both rigid and flexible facing materials. Such composites form structural sandwich panels and insulated building boards and may be used in the manufacture of cold stores, caravans, mobile homes and offices, insulated building units etc.
Timbond PU Rapid has a short open time, which gives fast cure rates.
Materials to be bonded should be clean and free from dust, grease and other contaminants.
A test panel should always be prepared when new materials are to be used to establish the adhesives compatibility.
The adhesive can be applied by trowel, notched spreader, or a polybottle to one surface only of each glue line.
The amount required will vary according to the porosity/smoothness of the substrates and the means of application, but will normally be in the range 80 – 140 grams per square meter.
The panel is then assembled as soon as possible and placed under pressure within 5 minutes.
The pressure is required will depend to a great extent on the nature of the substrates but is usually in the range 0.5 to 0.9 bar.
Pressure should be maintained until the adhesive is sufficiently cured to permit handling of the bonded item. Full cure of the adhesive is not obtained for 24 hours and handling within this period should be kept to a minimum.
Timbond PU Rapid when uncured can be removed when cleaning Solvent 6 or Solvent 9. Cured product will prove very difficult to remove, however, soaking in Solvent 6 overnight will soften the adhesive.
Timbond PU Rapid is a moisture sensitive adhesive and left in contact with the open atmosphere will eventually gel. For this reason Timbond PU Rapid is protected with a blanked of Nitrogen in the container prior to despatch, which forms a dry, inert layer on top of the adhesive.
