LOCTITE® EPOXY INSTANT MIX™ 5 MINUTE
0.47 fl oz (each), 1365868
Loctite Epoxy Instant Mix 5 Minute is a two-part adhesive consisting of an epoxy resin and a hardener. When mixed in equal volumes, the resin and hardener react to produce a tough, rigid, high strength bond, which starts to set in 5 minutes and reaches handling strength in 1 hour. The static mix nozzle delivers a uniform mixture of resin and hardener every time. It can be used as an adhesive for a wide range of materials or as a versatile filler for gap bonding, surface repairs and laminating. Loctite Epoxy Instant Mix 5 Minute does not shrink and is resistant to water and most common solvents. It can be tinted with earth pigments, cement or sand for color matching and can be sanded and drilled.

Directions For Best Results:
Well-ventilated area, gloves.
Protect work area. Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, wax and paint. For better adhesion, roughen smooth surfaces prior to cleaning. Pre-fit parts to be joined. Remove plastic cap from center of plunger. Turn nozzle end up and pull plunger back slightly allowing air bubbles to rise to top. Snap off and discard end of syringe. Dispense air. Insert nozzle opening and push past prongs. Rotate nozzle 90° to lock into place.
Depress plunger to dispense equal amounts of hardener and resin directly onto surface to be filled or bonded. Remove and discard nozzle. Wipe syringe tip immediately. Retract plunger slightly and close with the cap provided. Place objects together within 4 minutes of adhesive application. Bond sets in 5 to 7 minutes at 68°F (20°C) to 77°F (25°C). For best results in butt joints, apply adhesive as a reinforcing fillet or splint over the joint for additional support. Remove any excess adhesive immediately with mineral spirits. Usable strength is obtained within 1 hour. Warmer temperatures will shorten the set time and cooler temperatures will lengthen it.
Clean excess glue immediately with mineral spirits. Cured adhesive may be cut away with caution using a sharp blade. Prolonged immersion in paint stripper will soften the cured adhesive to aid removal.
