APOLLO CONTACT ADHESIVE
Apollo A2344 is a readily brushable, fast drying, high performance contact adhesive. Although specifically designed for automotive trim bonding applications where high heat resistance is required, it is a versatile product can be used for the bonding of decorative laminates to wood and wood composites, the bonding of insulation materials to metal and for bonding miscellaneous rubbers and plastics both to each other and to other substrates.
In the automotive industry it is used for bonding PVC leather-cloth, leather and fabrics to painted/primed steel or to polyurethane foam, for bonding rubber door seals and for bonding sound deadening materials to door, roof, bonnet and boot panels. In commercial vehicles it can be used for bonding rubber or carpet type flooring materials and also decorative laminates.
A2344 has considerably higher heat resistance than normal single-part contact adhesives without the excessively short open time which is usually associated with higher performance products.
Ensue that the surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from grease, dust and other contaminants (particularly release agents). The adhesive should be applied uniformly to both surfaces to be bonded either with a stiff brush, notched spreader or sleeker. When the surfaces become tacky to the finger they should be brought together (ensuring that the components are properly aligned) and the bond consolidated under firm, even pressure to provide overall coalescence of the adhesive film.
