QUIETEX™ BUMPER ADHESIVE SPECIFICATIONS

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

RUBBER - BASED
Color: Clear
Thickness: 1.3 - 1.6 mils
Service Temperature Range: -40°F (-40°C) to 200°F (193.3°C)
Minimum Dwell Time to Application Substrate: 15 minutes

Peel Adhesion: Shear Adhesion:
Test method PSTC-1 (5 min. dwell, 12 in/min) Test method PSTC-7 (Load 500 g at 72°F)
Substrate: Stainless Steel Substrate: Stainless Steel
Typical Value: 70 oz/in Typical Value: > 240 minutes to failure

The adhesion has very high tack strength properties. Provides excellent adhesion to a variety of high surface energy substrates such as metal, glass, acrylic and polycarbonate. It also has good adhesion to low surface energy substrates such as polypropylene, polyethylene and powder coated paints.



ACRYLIC - BASED
Color: Clear
Thickness 1.3 - 1.6 mils
Service Temperature Range: -40°F (-40°C) to 200°F (193°C)
Intermittent exposure: up to 200°F (193°C)
Minimum Dwell Time to Application Substrate: 24 hours

Peel Adhesions: Shear Adhesions:
Test method PSTC-1 (20 min. dwell, 12 in/min.) Test method PSTC-7 (Load 1000g at 72°F)
Substrate: Stainless Steel Substrate: Stainless Steel
Typical Value: 34 oz/in

Typical Value: >1440 minutes to failure

The adhesive has excellent shear and long term strength properties. Provides excellent adhesion to high surface energy substrates such as metal, glass, acrylic and polycarbonate. Acrylic adhesives do not perform well on low surface energy substrates (polypropylene and polyethylene). It is important to keep in mind that the acrylic adhesive needs time to build its adhesion strength to the substrate. We recommend a minimum of 24 hrs of dwell time before actual application uses.



APPLICATION TECHNIQUES:
  • To obtain maximum adhesion, surfaces must be uniform, clean and dry, as well as free of grease, wax, oil, dust and other foreign material that might affect adhesion.


  • Clean surfaces with low strength solvents such as Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or Heptane.


  • Application Temperature Range: +50°F (10°C) to 100°F (38°C).


  • When applying the Fastex Bumper to surfaces, it is important that a sufficient amount of pressure is applied to obtain optimum adhesion.


  • Avoid adhesive contamination with foreign material.
STORAGE GUIDELINES:

  • Temperature Range:
    +40°F (4°C) to 75°F (24°C)


  • Humidity Range:
    40 to 60% R.H.



SHELF LIFE:
Adhesion properties should not change for one year if stored at recommended storage guidelines.
