How do I prepare a surface properly prior to bonding?

  • For best results always ensure your surface is clean, dry and free from oil, grease and any other contaminants.
  • If the surface is dirty, wash it with a detergent solution and dry thoroughly before proceeding.
  • Abrade the surface – when you abrade something you scratch or roughen it, increasing the surface area and enabling adhesives to key (grip) more powerfully.
  • Abrading effectively increases the surface area by 35%, giving you a corresponding increase in bond strength.
  • Clean with a non-residual cleaning solvent such as NovaBond Surface Cleaner to remove any dust and create an ideal bonding surface.
