Beetle Resin 952
High strength U/F resin for hot & cold press assembly work
Medium Viscosity Urea Formaldehyde Resin Adhesive
Beetle Resin 952 is an unmodified liquid Urea Formaldehyde Resin Adhesive.
Beetle Resin 952 is a highly reactive product designed to reduce the time of the pressing cycle due to its high adhesion properties, whilst providing long pot lives and spreader life.
Beetle Resin 952 is used for Hot and Cold Press assembly work, Veneering, Sub assemblies, Flush Door manufacture, and constructional work where close contact joints cannot be guaranteed (use with gap filling hardener). Can also be used with High Frequency curing techniques.
It is recommended that all mixes should be gauged by weight and not by volume. The use of cleanrubber or polythene containers is recommended.
Mixing may be undertaken by hand although for larger mixes mechanical mixing is recommended.
It is advisable that the mix be allowed to stand after mixing to allow any entrapped air to be liberated.
Ensure all surfaces to be bonded are clean and free from oil, wax or other water repellent materials and are dust free.
Oily timber should wiped with an appropriate detergent or degreasing solvent.
Machined Hardwood may become burnished and consequently water repellent and shoul be sanded prior to glue application. Plywood may present a similar problem.
The ideal moisture content of the surfaces to be bonded should be between 5% and 15% with a moisture differential between surfaces of no more than 3%.
The mixed adhesive can be applied by brush , roller , hand applicator or mechanical rollers at a spread rate of 150-250 grams/square metre. Mechanical spreaders are more capable of achieving the lower end of the range.
Urea Formaldahyde resins have little natural tack so pressure must be applied continuously throughout the curing period. For Veneering a pressure of 1.0 - 3.5kg/cm2 is required at the glue line. For High frequency curing it may be necessary to use increased pressure.
