Why NovaWeld SignFix 1 glue for plastic?

NovaWeld SignFix 1 is a toughened acrylic adhesive formulated for the harshest weather conditions. Quick and easy to use, the pink/green acrylic adhesive can be applied bead on bead, allowing you to build up the adhesive to fill gaps while maintaining bond strength.

How to apply NovaWeld SignFix 1 acrylic adhesive

  1. Consult the SignFix material safety data sheet (MSDS) before using for the first time.
  2. Carry out surface preparation where required.
  3. Remove cap. Repeatedly press the gun trigger until both parts are dispensing before attaching mixer nozzle. This ensures you mix equal amounts of adhesive and activator.
  4. Apply the mixed adhesive to one surface. Assemble components carefully and clamp if required. Take care not to over-tighten – you need to leave some adhesive between the joint.
  5. Remove any excess adhesive at this point, before the structural glue starts to cure. Use a suitable cleaner such as NovaBond Surface Cleaner.
  6. Allow the adhesive sufficient time to achieve handling strength (working time is 2-3 minutes depending on environmental conditions) before moving or unclamping. Full cure and ultimate bond strength will take 24 hours to achieve.
