WINDFIX

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

WINDFIX® LM+is a specially modified copolymer in accordance with Stress Group D3. It provides excellent adhesion to laminate/wood/veneer/particle board/block board to wood/ply/flush door/MDF/HDF. It also offers very high water-resistance and excellent bonding in lamination with all grades of wood after optimum curing. WINDFIX® LM+shows better and cohesive strength at elevated temperatures, a versatile balance that renders adhesive with very good heat resistance. It is formaldehyde free, non-flammable and non-combustible in nature.

APPLICATION

In cold / hot press, bonding laminate / acrylic / wood / veneer sheet to wood / ply / flush door / MDF / HDF.

APPLICATION METHOD

  • The surfaces should be free from dust, oil, and grease. They should be dry and properly leveled.
    For best results, roughen the surfaces to be bonded.
  • Ensure the adhesive container is stirred well before use.
  • WINDFIX® LM+adhesive should be applied as a thin, even coating to one surface only.
  • Excellent flow and spray ability that can give higher coverage.
  • FOR PLY TO LAMINATE: Before allowing the adhesive to dry, bring both the surfaces in contact, align
    properly and start pressing from one side by using the wet squeezed cloth to avoid bubbles and
    ensure uniform contact.
  • FOR WOOD TO WOOD: Before allowing the adhesive to dry, bring both surfaces in contact and align
    properly. To get the best results to keep them pressed for 24 hours.
  • The excess adhesive that oozes out from edges should be wiped off with a wet squeezed cloth.
  • Pressure can be applied by using Clamps, Weight, Cold Press, Hot Press, Roller Press etc.
  • If required, pressure can be released after 3 to 4 hours and then bonded assembly can be
    processed further.

PRODUCT FEATURES

  • Excellent Water resistance and Heat resistance properties. It also meets the requirement of
    Stress Group D3.
  • Ready to use and high bonding strength.
  • Higher coverage compared to a solvent-based adhesive system, 40-42 sq. feet/kg.
