Material Application Tips
The MAVERICK BOND is not suitable for use on paper or cloth. It is also not suitable for petrol – in such instances where petrol is involved use the MAVERICK AQUA or STEEL.
Teflon, polyethylene, polypropylene and some polyurethane can ONLY be bonded with the Maverick Bond after the surface has been treated with the MAVERICK PRIME.
Porous materials – such as leathers, natural woods, ceramics, porcelain or china – require additional drying time. Apply firm pressure on join and hold for approximately 5 seconds then allow additional curing for anywhere up to 10 minutes before testing the join. For best and faster results apply the MAVERICK ACCELERATOR.
Metals, steel and aluminum – ensure surface is thoroughly clean. Either sand or file clean and spread adhesive evenly across the surface. Where surface contact available is inadequate, use the MAVERICK FILL or MAVERICK STEEL for best results.
Flexible materials with holes or splits – such as tires or sheeting, it is more appropriate to do patchwork rather then gluing the area. Use of the MAVERICK FILL may be suitable, however, the rigid setting on the Fill may cause it to break on flexing.
Flexible materials subject to peeling – ensure the edges are button down with the glue otherwise the edges may lift, allowing the material in question to peel – often damaging the material.
Cracks or splits in casings or hard materials – such instances may compromise the surface contact between the break. The MAVERICK BOND alone may not have sufficient surface contact to hold – use the MAVERICK FILL.
Insufficient surface contact – whenever and wherever surface contact is insufficient to tension applied, it is imperative additional surface area is created. This may be done by plating, joining or sleeve form. Alternatively, use the MAVERICK FILL , AQUA or STEEL.
Large areas – contact must be made across the material. Apply pressure by shifting positions on the material to ensure ALL the areas have been given an opportunity to make the necessary contacts. On large flexible surfaces (such as repairing shoes), it is more appropriate to apply and glue section by section to ensure full contact is made across the material.
