Before using our adhesion promoter, the bonding surface should be free of dust, grease, oil, moisture, and other contaminants. Therefore, we highly recommend cleaning the substrate with a lint-free cloth using solvents, such as ethanol or isopropanol alcohol or our tesa® 60040 Industry Cleaner.
Once the surface has been cleaned, you can go ahead and apply our tesa® 60153 Adhesion Promoter. We recommend applying our adhesion promoters with a lint-free cloth or sponge. Other than that, an applicator pen or felt applicator can be used. The entire surface should be coated thinly with adhesion promoter in order to reach the highest bonding perfor-mance. It is important to wait at least 30 seconds and up to 5 minutes (depending on ambient temperature and humidity) in order to give solvents time to evaporate. Please make sure to keep the prepared surface free of contaminants prior to applying the tape.
Once the substrate has been properly pre-treated with tesa® 60153 Adhesion Promoter, the open time for bonding is several hours. Please note that due to the multitude of available substrate formulations in the marketplace, it is recommended to test our tesa® Adhesion Pro-moter prior to usage.
