Materials

Application

Kestopur PL 240 gives an extremely strong bond.
Ideal for trowel application. Used in conjunction with Kestopur 200/S hardener. Kestopur PL adhesives are fire classified according to IMO FTPC, Part 5 and have an MED certificate (Wheel-mark). Kestopur PL 240 is used for the gluing of metal, glass fibre laminate, insulation wools and foams, ceramic tiles and sandwich panels. When gluing plastic e.g. PES, PC, PVC, ABS and PA, always test adhesion beforehand.

Instructions for use

The surfaces to be bonded must be clean and dry. Remove oxides by sanding, and grease and other dirt with Kiilto Cleaner 303. When applying Kestopur PL 240 on concrete, relative humidity of the surface can be max. 90%. First stir Kestopur PL 240 resin and then add the hardener and stir until the mixture is even-coloured. Apply the adhesive on one or both sides of the materials to be bonded with suitable equipment. Remove fresh adhesive stains with a dry cloth and clean the surfaces with Kiilto Cleaner 302, acetone or xylene. Hardened adhesive can only be removed by mechanical means. We recommend gluing at room temperature. Gluing can be carried out at below room temperature (+5–10 °C), but the hardening process will be slower and application may be affected.
