1. Preparation – Cleaning
It is recommended to use the correct LOCTITE® cleaner for the surface to be bonded (such as LOCTITE® SF 7070™) to degrease and clean surfaces prior to applying the adhesive.
2. Application of Accelerator
LOCTITE® SF 7649 can be either sprayed or brushed onto one or both mating surfaces. For smaller gaps, it is only necessary to apply the accelerator to one surface. Pourous surfaces my require two treatments of activator.
3. Application of Anaerobic Product
Allow the solvent carrier of the activator to evaporate off completely so that the parts are dry to the touch. The accelerator has an on-part life of 30 days. Within that window of time, the anaerobic can be applied normally.
