Weld-On 1802 is a clear, thin bodied, medium set, solvent cement. It cures with the dissipation of solvents forming strong, water resistant, clear joints. Initial bonds form very quickly. Depending on size and conditions, some parts may be handled within just a few minutes of application. Bond strength will be considerable in a few hours and will reach high strength in 24 to 48 hours. Thereafter, strength will gradually increase for a number of weeks. Cured joints are water and weather resistant.
Weld-On 1802 is formulated to bond acrylic (poly-methyl methacrylate), ABS, cellulose acetate butyrate, rigid PVC, and polystyrene to themselves and to each other. It does not bond to metal or glass.
Weld-On 1802 is a multi-purpose acrylic plastic cement. It is recommended for use in a variety of application such as large housings, signs, plastic letters, industrial fabrications, display items, lenses and models.

Directions for Use
Three years in tightly sealed containers. The date code of manufacture is stamped on the bottom of the container. Stability of the product is limited by the evaporation of the solvent when the container is opened. Evaporation of solvent will cause the cement to thicken and reduce its effectiveness. Adding of thinners to change viscosity is not recommended and may significantly change the properties of the cement.
Safety and Environmental Precautions
This product is a flammable, fast evaporating solvent cement. It is considered a hazardous material. In conformance with the Federal Hazardous Substance Labeling Act, the following hazards and precautions are given. Purchasers who may re-package this product must also conform to all local, state, and federal labeling, safety and other regulations. VOC emissions do not exceed 350 grams per liter.
WARNING! FLAMMABLE. VAPOR HARMFUL. MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. MAY IRRITATE SKIN OR EYES.
Keep out of the reach of children. Do not take internally. Keep away from heat, spark, open flame and other sources of ignition. Keep container closed when not in use. Store away from direct sunlight between 40º F – 110º F (5º C – 43º C). Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing of vapors. Atmospheric levels should be maintained below established exposure limit values contained in Section II and VIII of Material Safety Data Sheet. If airborne concentrations exceed those limits, use of a NIOSH-approved organic vapor cartridge respirator with full face-piece is recommended. The effectiveness of an air purifying respirator is limited. Use it only for a single short-term exposure. For emergency and other conditions where short-term exposure guidelines may be exceeded, use an approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus. Do not smoke, eat or drink while working with this product. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. May cause eye injury. Protective equipment such as gloves, safety goggles and impervious apron should be used. Carefully read Material Safety Data Sheet and follow all precautions.
