**During colder months (November-March) there is the risk of glue freezing in transit. I will ship if ordered but it will be at your own risk.


Make sure surfaces are clean and rough before bonding. 
Coat absorbent surfaces twice if necessary. 
Observe drying times: Aquilim turns clear when dry. 
Bond within open time, or activate with heat afterwards. 
Don't allow Aquilim to freeze.

Two sided application:
Two sided application possible for all materials.
Apply thin coat on both sides and let the adhesive dry (10–20 minutes or 2–3 minutes on leather, depending on layer thickness, can be accelerated by heating).
Join parts within open time or after heat activation and press with at least 1 bar.

One sided application:
One-sided application only if one side is absorbent/permeable
Apply slightly thicker coat on one side and immediately lay absorbent material onto wet adhesive layer.
Press materials together and allow several hours of drying/curing time.

Leather to leather: instant bond with one-sided application, adhesive needs to penetrate into the fiber structure.

Sewing/stitching is possible after 30–60 minutes.

**Not ideal on PE/PP material.

*Make sure to use in a well ventilated area.
