9. Bonding Procedure - Quickset Adhesive.
Use recommended quickset adhesive only: Eastman 910, Loctite 404, Alpha,
Goodyear Pliobond, Perma-Grip, or equivalent.
CYANOACRYLATE RESIN. It is a HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE - an IRRITATING
LIQUID and VAPOR. Use adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing vapor. Avoid
skin contact. If skin contact occurs, wipe immediately and flush skin area with
water. Eye or mouth contact requires medical attention.
Quickset cement is a contact adhesive which means that as soon as surfaces
make contact with each other a bond takes place.
Since immediate bonding takes place upon contact, the mated surfaces cannot be
pulled apart or adjusted. Therefore, it is important that extreme care be exercised
to ensure that all surfaces and edges of the split joint be in alignment for perfect
Achieving alignment of the mating surfaces is facilitated if the aft edges of the
element base can be set against a step in the shaft sleeve. This acts as a support
and a guide to bring all edges in alignment.
Clean the area where the rubber element will be seated during bonding. Any
foreign matter on the mating surfaces will prevent bonding. Therefore, cleanliness
Use Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) to clean split surfaces. Wipe lightly with a cloth
moistened with MEK, if surface is soiled.
