Surface Preparation

The surfaces to be glued should be clean and free from dust, grease and other contaminants. Wood, plaster and brick may be damp but not running wet. Use mechanical abrasion to clean porous surfaces if necessary before application.





Apply GUN A NAIL to one side either in strips or daubs. Position the object to be fixed, then move from side to side and simultaneously apply pressure to achieve an even bond. If the object is wrongly positioned, slide it to the correct position. Finally, apply maximum pressure for a short time. (up to 1 minute) Wipe away any excess with a damp cloth making a neat joint between the two bonded surfaces. Temporary mechanical fixings may be required for heavy objects while full bond strength is reached.
