TensorGrip L19 – Formica Tested High Performance Laminate and Edging Adhesive

TensorGrip® L19 is a high performance contact adhesive with a unique resin formula which creates a tough and resilient bond line between decorative surface materials and all common wood substrates. L19 is suitable for bonding HPL to a variety of substrates including MDF, chipboard, plywood and many other timber sheet materials.

TensorGrip® L19 is designed for permanent bonding of materials where immediate bond strength and high heat resistance are required. ALWAYS test TensorGrip® L19 to determine suitability for your particular application prior to use in production. NOT RECOMMENDED for use with plasticised vinyls, flexible plastics, and expanded / extruded polystyrene, PE or PP.

Directions For Use:

This product is designed to be applied to two surfaces to be bonded together. Make sure that surfaces are clean, dry and free from dirt, dust, oil, loose paint, wax or grease, etc. For best results, the temperature of the adhesive and the surfaces being bonded should be between 60 °F – 80 °F (16 °C – 27 °C).

Use with adequate ventilation. When possible we recommend shaking the canister well before using. Attach and secure hose tightly onto the spray gun with required tip. Attach the other end of the hose onto the canister. Make sure the hose-valve connections are securely tight. Open the valve on the canister slowly and fully, check for leaks during this process. Unlock the trigger on the spray gun to start spraying.

Prior to use, Check compatibility by spraying a small test patch of the adhesive on the substrate. This product may degrade some substrates. Spray about 10-20 cm (4” – 8”) away at a 90 degree angle to the surface, applying a uniform, even coat of adhesive to obtain 80% to 100% coverage of the surface. If necessary, spray another coat of adhesive in areas that appear to need more adhesive. Spray both surfaces to be bonded, one surface vertically and the other surface horizontally. Allow the adhesive to tack off until no adhesive transfers to the knuckle when touched.

Adhere surfaces and press together with adequate pressure. A roller is recommended to apply a uniform pressure to achieve maximum strength. Allow 24 hours for the adhesive to fully cure.

If the spray tip clogs, unscrew the spray tip from the gun and clean with solvent such as lacquer thinner or acetone. Do not use a pin on the spray tip orifice.

Handling & Storage:

CANISTER STORAGE/CHANGE OVER Turn valve on canister into the off position, spray out remaining adhesive left in the hose, disconnect the spray hose and gun from the canister. Reconnect the spray hose to a canister of cleaning solvent (sold separately) and spray out until liquid is clear which indicates that the hose and gun is clean. If you choose to leave the hose and spray gun on the canister, leave the valve on the canister open. Do not disconnect the hose/gun from the canister. Close and lock the spray gun.

For optimum results store canister above 18°C during use, but must always be above 10°C. Allow substrates to acclimatise to normal room temperature (18°C) for 48 hours before bonding. Do not exceed open time of the adhesive. Keep canister off cold concrete floors during use. If adhesive is expelled wet or as a jet, canister is too cold – move to warm environment and allow to thoroughly acclimatise before reusing.

CAUTION

  • Use only in well ventilated areas.
  • DO NOT thin or reactivate with solvents.
  • DO NOT incinerate.
  • DO NOT expose to extreme heat over 50°C.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Keep away from sources of ignition.
  • Release pressure before disconnecting hose.
  • Test for suitability before use.
