· Elevil 45 must be spread evenly on the surfaces to be bonded using a spatula, roller coater or other appropriate tool.
· The preparation of the wood and its gluing must be carried out, as far as possible, on the same day to avoid a variation of the tolerances in the dimensions of the parts, with consequent lengthening of the pressing time and weakening of the adhesive joint.
· Elevil 45 does not cause stains and other fading phenomena in wood. Iron impurities coming from the tools, can however generate, by reaction with the tannin present in the wood and in particular with the oak, black spots. For the same reason it is also not advisable to contact or pour into iron containers.
· The parts to be glued must be assembled before the expiration of the open time and pressed until sufficient initial bonding power is obtained.
· When gluing the laminate it is necessary to first ascertain the nature of the back, which can sometimes show traces of release agent, which can affect the wetting capacity of the adhesive and consequently the open time. In the most critical cases, there may be visible gluing defects, a scuffing of the back and subsequent removal of the remaining dust can improve adhesion.
· Avoid adding flours and various excipients that modify the adhesive performance of the adhesive.
· The adhesive easily withstands a maximum addition of water of 1 - 3% to possibly adjust the viscosity if it should be too high, beyond this value the open time can vary significantly.
· The application of Elevil 45 must take place at temperatures not lower than + 15 ° C, below this temperature the bonding power can progressively decrease until the parts are completely detached once the minimum film-forming temperature is reached. The structural characteristics of the bonding deviate from the optimal values with decreasing temperature and at very low values the filmation of the adhesive itself may not occur.
