MAVERICKACCELERATOR – aid when glueing porous materials.
The MAVERICKACCELERATOR has 2 primary functions.
1. When attempting to glue porous materials – such as porcelain, ceramics, natural woods, terracotta, concrete or leather – the actual surface area available for bonding is fragmented thus limiting surface contact thereby reducing the strength of the bond.
The MAVERICKACCELERATOR acts as a sealant and by increasing the surface contact, allows for better and stronger bonding on porous materials.
2. The anaerobic nature of the MaverickBond requires the absence of air to form bonds. Thus porous materials make such processes difficult – requiring additional drying time. Applying the MAVERICKACCELERATOR significantly reduce the bonding time on such porous materials.
In addition, the MAVERICKACCELERATOR reduces glue loss resulting from the porous materials absorbing or soaking up the glue.
The MAVERICKACCELERATOR can also be used on non-porous materials. Bonding polished surfaces such as glass, tiles and various metals can be aided by the MAVERICKACCELERATOR by ensuring a clean non-slippery surface for the adhesive to work on.
Apply the MAVERICKACCELERATOR via the brush tips in the bottle to one side of the material and the MaverickBond on the opposite side. DO NOT apply both products on the same side. In cases whereby 2 different materials are being glued, apply the ACCELERATOR to the more porous material.
It is not necessary to apply the Maverick Accelerator on non-porous materials.
Porous materials CAN BE glued without the MaverickAccelerator but if so, or for those who do not have the Accelerator, allow more time for the MaverickBond to form bonds.
Where MaverickAccelerator is not available, apply the glue then apply pressure to the area for about 5 seconds. Then allow for it to set for a several minutes before you test the bonding strength – time dependent on the materials involved.
