Instructions For Use
It is essential that all substrates to be used are free of contamination and are in as ideal a state for bonding as possible. As pretreatment varies significantly depending on the substrates used, please refer to the Hexcel Composites publication Redux® Bonding Technology for optimum procedures.
If there is to be a delay between the pretreatment and bonding of aluminium, the pretreated surface should be protected with Redux® 112 surface pretreatment protection solution to conserve the optimum bonding surface.
This will enable bonding to be delayed for up to 3 months without deterioration of the pretreated surface. The correct application of Redux® 112 should not alter the bonding performance of Redux® 312 (for full application details consult the relevant data sheet).
