Product Overview

Alpha Thixofix contact adhesive has been developed as an easy to use, multi-purpose contact adhesive that exhibits high bonding performance and non-drip properties.

Its aim is to make the bonding of laminated plastics to wood and other substrates simple whilst maintaining the well proven efficiency and strength of ordinary contact adhesives.

Alpha Thixofix contact adhesive has a gel appearance developed to ensure ease of application using the Thixofix notched spreader to deliver the correct amount of adhesive on to the materials being used.

It is ideal for use on vertical surfaces without the risk of the adhesive dripping or running.

It will stay in place throughout application, allowing the accurate positioning of materials to be performed due to the unique ”slideability” of Thixofix to ensure the correct final finish of the bonded assembly. It also eliminates the spills and mess that is normally associated with ordinary brushable contact adhesives.

Preparation and application

The general application information presented here is based upon typical conditions determined by Alpha Adhesives & Sealants testing. Our recommendations on the use of this product are based on methods believed to be reliable. It is advised that users conduct their own tests to determine the suitability of the product for their specific application.

Process Step Guidelines

Surface Preparation

All substrate surfaces should be abraded using abrasion paper or air-driven narrow belt sander. It is imperative that the surfaces are then cleaned of any dust, grit, loose material, wax, grease and oil using a suitable cleaner.

Adhesive Application TWO-WAY STICK

1. Apply Thixofix Contact Adhesive with the supplied spreader to both surfaces that are being bonded.

2. Allow the adhesive to dry for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. The drying time will change dependant upon the substrates being bonded and the temperature and humidity conditions. The adhesive should be “touch dry” where no transfer of adhesive on to a glove should be apparent.

3. Bring the surfaces together and press firmly to consolidate the bond, taking care not to trap air. It is advisable to position the materials in the desired position prior to adhesive application or bonding, the unique consistency of Thixofix is allows for small adjustments to positioning to be performed.

Curing The immediate high contact bond strength increases appreciably within the next 48 hours, and will develop still further in service. For the best heat resistance, leave at room temperature for 7 days, before subjecting to high in-service temperatures up to 70°C.

Handling and storage

Alpha Thixofix should be stored in its original container, with the lid tightly secured, in dry conditions and at temperatures between 5°C and 25°C. Alpha Thixofix will keep satisfactorily for up to 24 months from date of manufacture if stored according to the recommended conditions.
