Aro-Bond® 693 is a brushable contact adhesive suitable for a range of internal and external applications.
Aro-Bond® 693 is ideal for bonding decorative laminates to wood composites due to its excellent heat-resistant adhesion properties. It will bond all grades of timber and most plastics. It is also suitable for use with hard furnishings, cotton-backed vinyl and most metals.
Aro-Bond® 693 is well proven and established in a wide cross-section of industries such as a shop fitting, kitchen fitting and general repairs, where it is used to bond a wide variety of materials. Aro-Bond® 693 has high initial bond-strength which allows the immediate handling of joined substrates whilst its long open tack-time of up to 20 minutes gives the flexibility you need to allow for unforseeable delays.
Ensure that the surfaces to be bonded are smooth, clean and free from dust or other deposits.
Surfaces to be bonded should be preconditioned with the adhesive to a temperature within the range 15 - 20°C.
Aro-Bond® 693 should be stirred before use. Aro-Bond® 693 should be applied using a thin even coat of adhesive to the surfaces of both substrates using a short stiff brush.
Align the panel edges and bond under maximum pressure as soon as the surfaces become ‘touch dry’ (adhesive is glossy and no longer transfers to the knuckles).
Laminates should be nip-rolled or platen-pressed for best results. If this is not possible, use a hard roller and go over the entire working surface with as much bodyweight as possible. Seams and edges should always receive extra pressure. If possible, sandwich the panel edge between wooden battens and use G-clamps.
Consult Material Safety Data Sheet prior to use.
Aro-Bond® 693 should be stored in the original containers in a cool, dry place, at a temperature range of between 5°C and 25°C. This will ensure the stated shelf-life. The adhesive will have a limited life once the container is opened. Aro-Bond® 693 must not be allowed to freeze.
