Weicon Easy-Mix S 50 Epoxy Adhesive is a fast-curing, high quality epoxy adhesive that is ideal for quick repair and maintenance jobs. This grade has a very short pot life (about 4-5 minutes) and is quite viscid and is self-levelling.
A two-part product, Easy-Mix S 50 Epoxy Adhesive is very easy to use due to the fact it is supplied in a double syringe system. This, when applied using the correct applicator gun and combined with the special Quadro Mixing Nozzles means that even though it is two part, by the time Easy-Mix S 50 comes out of the nozzle it is properly mixed and can be directly applied.
Weicon Easy-Mix S 50 Epoxy Adhesive is based on unfilled epoxy resin and can be used to cover gaps up to 2mm (maximum). In 20ºC conditions it will reach handling strength (about 35% of final) in approximately 30 minutes, be at 50% final strength in about an hour and fully cured in around 24 hours.
Easy-Mix S 50 Epoxy Adhesive is a pale yellow colour and, once cured, exhibits excellent adhesion to a variety of materials and surfaces (more info below). Fully cured Easy-Mix S 50 will withstand temperatures between -50ºC and 80ºC and exhibit excellent dielectric strength (1kV/mm, ASTM D149) and electrical resistance (1013 Ω/cm, ASTM D257).

Guidelines for Use
Before application of the adhesive, it is important to ensure that the surfaces to be bonded are clean and dry (clean and degrease using Weicon Cleaner S or Weicon Plastic Cleaner). Smooth surfaces should be slightly roughened if possible.
Apply Weicon Easy-Mix S 50 Epoxy Adhesive to just one of the surfaces to be bonded. This grade will bridges a minimum gap of 0.2mm and a maximum of 2mm. The pot life given is for a 10ml quantity at room temperature. If larger quantities are used the curing time will be accelerated due to the exothermic reaction that occurs with epoxy resins. Similarly, higher ambient temperatures will accelerate the cure time (a rule of thumb for this is every 10ºC increase will halve working and cure time).
