Creates strong bond on low surface energy plastics LSE such as polyolefin with minimal or no surface prep required Resists many chemicals, water, humidity and corrosion Formulated to bond multi-material assemblies such as LSE plastics, thermoplastics composites and metals Medium viscosity allows controlled dispensing 3 minute work life with 3 hours handling strength Strong adhesive can replace screws, rivets and welding Creates a Strong Bond on Low Surface Energy PlasticsStructural bonds can be achieved without special surface treatments such as chemical etching, plasma, flame, or corona treatment or priming. Simply wipe the surfaces with isopropanol to remove mold release agents, dust dirt, etc. We also formulate this adhesive with 8 mil spacer beads for bond line spacing. The mix ratio is and provides a 3 minute work life. Easy Adhesion with Acrylic Acrylic adhesives are two-part adhesives that provide excellent bond strength and durability. Often referred to as epoxy adhesives or epoxy glue, acrylics actually belong to a separate chemical family with their own unique characteristics.

Excelent but expensive. Not as good for FRP. Pre-fit and rehearse before opening the tube and use minimum clamping presure to avoid starving the joint. It is best to flame treat Starboard. That raises the surface energy and vastly improves bond strength.
Just run a propane torch lightly over the surface to be glued until it starts to look a little oily. Assemble within about 30 minutes of treating. After 5 years of walking over it is as strong as ever with no separation. The down side is you only have 2 or 3 minutes to position parts and maybe another 2 to clamp. The nozzles are expensiev and the glue in the nozzles will set up and become useless in less than 7 or 8 minutes.
If you have several parts to glue you can extend the life of the nozzle some by keeping the nozzle cold. I drop the applicator, nozzzle first, in a glass of ice water between uses and dry it on a paper towel when ready to glue the next part.
The demo video is wrong. Load the cartrige in the applicator and squirt a small amount BEFORE attatching the nozzle to insure that both components are being dispensed properly. Dispose of the first little squeeze out the nozzle. It may not be properly mixed. Also throw away the little cap and leave the nozzle on after use. It will set up and seal the tube but you can remove it for next use. The original cap will be contaminated with hardner when you removed it. If you reuse it it can perminently seal the tube.
However, I have used some that had been in the frige for over two years and it set up fine. Just not as strong as when fresh.
