Araldite® Standard is a 2-component multi-purpose adhesive, cured at room temperature and with high mechanical strength and hardness. It is indicated for the union of a wide substrate of materials including metals, ceramics, glass, rubbers, rigid plastics and many other materials of common use. It is a versatile adhesive for the craftsman and for many industrial applications.
• Manual mixing
• Long handling or working time
• Without shrinkage
• Good resistance to dynamic loads
• Adherence on a wide substrate of commonly used materials
For professional applications we recommend the most specific adhesives, 2011, 2012, 2014-1 and 2031 and with AUTOMATIC MIXED disposable nozzles for various uses.

TREATMENT AND APPLICATION:
The strength and durability of a joint together depend on the correct treatment of the surfaces to be joined. As a minimum, the surfaces to be joined must be cleaned with a quality degreasing agent, such as isopropanol, acetone, or registered degreasing agent to remove all traces of oil, grease and dirt.
You can buy our cleaning agent based on isopropanol as an accessory to this product.
Never use alcohol, gasoline (petroleum) or paint thinners.
The strongest and most durable joints are obtained either by mechanically abrading or by chemically attacking (degreasing) the degreased surfaces. After abrasion a second degreasing treatment should be carried out
Ratio of the mixture Parts by weight Parts by volume:
Araldite STANDARD Resin 100 100
Araldite STANDARD Hardener 80 100
The resin and hardener should be mixed to form a homogeneous mixture.
Application of the adhesive,
The resin / hardener mixture is applied with the specific gun for bicomponent application and a spatula to the pretreated and dry joint surfaces. With a layer of adhesive from 0.05 to 0.10 mm thick, the highest shear strength of the joint will be achieved.
The pieces to be joined must be assembled and fixed as soon as the adhesive has been applied. A uniform contact pressure throughout the joint area will ensure optimum curing.
All utensils should be cleaned with hot water and soap before the adhesive residue has time to cure. The disposal of cured waste is a long and difficult task.
If solvents are used, such as acetone, for cleaning, operators should take appropriate precautions and, in addition, avoid any contact with the skin and eyes.
