Application instruction

APPLICAION
DOLPHIN FIX & SEAL NAIL FREE ADHESIVE can be applied either as one-way method or a two-way method adhesive. For both applications, the initial requirement is that surfaces to be bonded must be clean and dry and free of grease, oil or dust. Before application, loose materials or flaking paint must be removed and sanded lightly. Surface temperatures of substrates should not exceed 30°C and the product should not be used where continuous exposure to elevated temperature occurs. Apply a 4-6mm bead of adhesive to substrate with a cartridge or extrusion gun with a notched towel. Beads should not exceed 45cm apart and butt joints should be adhered on both panel edges. Surfaces should be bonded together immediately.

One-Way Method
 
- This method for heavy panels or those that are formed to place a loading or stressed memory on the bond line.
- After application and bonding substrates together, they should be sufficiently clamped, nailed or screwed for maximum surface contact.
- Mechanical fasteners should be retained if highly stressed; but temporary fastening can be released after a minimum of 24 hours.
- For flooring applications, manufacturer’s specifications should be followed.
- To stop floor squeaking, apply a bead of adhesive into the groove of each board after it is laid and immediately prior to mating the tongue from the next panel or board.

Two-Way Method 
- After application, press firmly over entire surface to transfer adhesive and then pull both surfaces apart.
- Allow to tack off for 3-5 minutes (depending on ambient weather conditions) and then reposition and press together firmly.
- Bonded areas should be tapped with a hammer via a padded block to ensure firm contact.
- Depending on the weather conditions and substrates, 12-72 hours is required to reach maximum bond strength.
- Some weighted panels may require temporary mechanical fastening that should be retained for at least this period.
