MaverickBond Accelerator – aid when glueing porous materials.
The MaverickBond Accelerator 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 MaverickBond Accelerator 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 MaverickBond Accelerator significantly reduce the bonding time on such porous materials.
In addition, the MaverickBond Accelerator reduces glue loss resulting from the porous materials absorbing or soaking up the glue.
The MaverickBond Accelerator can also be used on non-porous materials. Bonding polished surfaces such as glass, tiles and various metals can be aided by the MaverickBond Accelerator by ensuring a clean non-slippery surface for the MaverickBond Adhesive to work on.
Apply the MaverickBond Accelerator via the brush tips in the bottle to one side of the material and the MaverickBond Adhesive on the opposite side. DO NOT apply both products on the same side. In cases whereby 2 different materials are being bonded, apply the ACCELERATOR to the more porous material.
It is not necessary to apply the MaverickBond Accelerator on non-porous materials.
Porous materials CAN BE glued without the MaverickBond Accelerator but if so, or for those who do not have MaverickBond Accelerator, allow more time for the MaverickBond Adhesive to form bonds.
Where MaverickBond Accelerator is not available, apply the MaverickBond Adhesive 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.
