Weld-On 30 is a fast speed 2-component structural adhesive in off white. It cures at room temperature to form a high strength bond within minutes when mixed at ratio (10:1 ) and applied;. The adhesive has excellent corrosion and chemical resistance, gap-filling capabilities, in addition to excellent impact and fatigue resistance, even in extreme temperature conditions, from -40° to 180° F (-40° to 82 ° C).
Bonds a wide variety of substrates for sign and display fabrication. Extremely well suited to unprepared metals, including Aluminum, CRS and Stainless Steel, as well as, painted and coated metals. Excellent adhesion to plastics such as PVC, polycarbonate, ABS, acrylic, as well as, thermoset composites with epoxy, polyester or vinyl ester resin matrices.
Weld-On 30 is UL 746C approved with high bond strength and resistance to extreme environmental conditions. Use on:
- Indoor and outdoor signage applications
- Electrical equipment assemblies
- Other signage fabrication where extreme temperature resistance is critical
Directions for Use
Weld-On 30 is packaged in a dual cylinder cartridge that dispenses product in a 10:1 mix ratio by volume. The cartridge must be inserted in the dispensing gun and mixing tip attached prior to dispensing.
- Before inserting the cartridge in the dispensing gun, open nose plug and clean obstructions from cartridge nose.
- Insert cartridge into dispensing gun. Dispense a small amount of adhesive making sure that both components freely flow out of the cartridge cylinders.
- Attach the mixing tip to the cartridge. Press the dispensing gun to dispense and discard approximately 1 – 2 inches (2.5 – 5.0 cm) of the product, ensuring that the product is mixed properly in the mixing tip before use. If the mixing tip is left on the cartridge for a sufficient length of time without additional use, the adhesive may cure in the tip. If this happens, keep the mixing tip on the cartridge. When you are ready to dispense more adhesive, replace the mixing tip on the cartridge with a new one. Be sure to discard 1 – 2 inches (2.5 – 5.0 cm) of the product before use.
Storage and Shelf Life
The shelf life of components A and B in unopened containers is approximately six months from the date the product is shipped from IPS Corp. facilities. Shelf life is based on steady state storage between 65° F and 80° F (18° C and 27° C). Exposure, intermittent or prolonged, above 80° F (27° C) will result in a reduction of the stated shelf life. Exposures above 100° F (38° C) during shipping or storage can quickly degrade component B in cartridges or bulk containers, and must be prevented. Shelf life of both components can be extended by air-conditioned or refrigerated storage between 55° F and 65° F (13° C and 18° C). KEEP FROM FREEZING.
Safety and Environmental Precautions
This product is a flammable, reactive adhesive. 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.
DANGER! FLAMMABLE. VAPOR HARMFUL. MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. MAY IRRITATE SKIN OR EYES.
Keep out of 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 65° F – 80° F (18° C – 27° C). Use only in adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing of vapors. Atmospheric levels should be maintained below established exposure limit values. See Section II of Material Safety Data Sheet. If airborne concentrations exceed those limits, use of a NIOSHapproved 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 selfcontained 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, goggles and impervious apron should be used. Carefully read Material Safety Data Sheet and follow all precautions.
Component A contains Methyl Methacrylate Monomer (80-62-6). Component B contains Catalyst-Initiator and Benzoyl Peroxide (94-36-0). Do not use this product for other than intended uses.
