Kestokol D4 is EN 204 D4 classified PVAC-adhesive for face- and finger jointing of non-structural window and external door production wood blanks.

Special features

  •  Used in conjunction with Hardener S. 

Materials

Application

Kestokol D4 + Hardener S is a reactive PVAc-dispersion adhesive for window and door manufacture and face and finger jointing. Due to D4 water resistance durability class, Kestokol D4 + Hardener S can be used for exterior applications exposed to weather when covered with an adequate surface covering, or indoors for applications with frequent long-term exposure to running or condensation water.

Instructions for use

Add 5 weight parts of Hardener S to 100 weight parts of Kestokol D4 and mix well. Check that the joints fit properly. Apply adhesive evenly on one side. Assemble and press the parts together aiming at an even squeeze out for the whole length of the joint. Joints can be pressed in a cold, hot or high frequency press. The final strength and water resistance of the bond is reached within 7 days.

With some wood types the adhesive’s acidity may cause discolouration in the adhesive bond. If in contact with iron, some discolouration in the blue-grey adhesive bond may also occur.

The consumption affects the open time of the adhesive as follows (pine 12 % wood moisture, 20 °C, 50 % RH):

 

 Consumption (g/m²) Open time(minutes)
 150 7
 180 11
 220 13
 250 16
