Full Product Description

Soudal Fix All X-Treme Power represents the pinnacle of adhesive technology, crafted to meet the rigorous demands of heavy-duty bonding tasks where extreme tack and high final mechanical properties are paramount. This adhesive is based on a cutting-edge SMX® Hybrid Polymer formula, ensuring a stable paste consistency that cures upon exposure to moisture, achieving significant handling strength within minutes and full cure within days.

The product's unique formulation allows it to form a skin in approximately 4 minutes at standard conditions (23°C/50% RH), with a curing speed of about 2 mm per 24 hours, leading to a durable bond with a hardness of around 55 ± 5 Shore A. Its density of 1.46 g/ml and the ability to withstand distortion of up to ± 20% attest to its robustness and flexibility, making it suitable for a wide range of materials and surfaces.

Soudal Fix All X-Treme Power is designed to withstand extreme temperatures, from as low as -40 °C to as high as 90 °C, ensuring its performance in all climates. It can be applied in temperatures ranging from 5 °C to 35 °C, allowing for versatility in application conditions. This adhesive offers unparalleled initial grab, eliminating the need for support in most cases, and achieves primerless adhesion on most construction materials, simplifying the bonding process.

With its virtually odourless nature and the exclusion of isocyanates and silicones, Soudal Fix All X-Treme Power ensures a user-friendly experience, minimizing health risks and making it an environmentally considerate choice.

 

Product Benefits:

  • Extreme Tack and Incredible Initial Grab: Provides unparalleled initial bonding strength, eliminating the need for temporary support in many applications. Its incredible initial grab of 400kg/m² ensures a secure and reliable hold from the moment of application, making it an industry-leading choice for demanding projects.

Substrate Suitability:

Soudal Fix All X-Treme Power is compatible with an extensive range of building materials, making it a versatile choice for various projects. It bonds exceptionally well to concrete, brick, wood, metal, plasterboard, and numerous other substrates.

The product has been rigorously tested on a variety of metal surfaces including stainless steel, AlMgSi1, brass, electro-galvanized steel, AlCuMg1, hot dip galvanized steel, AlMg3, and steel ST1403, demonstrating excellent adhesion.

Additionally, Fix All X-Treme Power adheres well to several plastics such as polystyrene, PVC, polyamide, fiberglass reinforced epoxy, and polyester. However, it is essential to remove any releasing agents, processing aids, or protective agents from these plastics before bonding. The use of Soudal Surface Activator is recommended for optimal adhesion.

It is important to note that the product is not suitable for bonding plastics prone to stress cracking or crazing, such as PMMA and polycarbonate, or for PE, PP, PTFE, and bituminous substrates.

 

Surface Preparation:

Proper surface preparation is vital for ensuring a strong bond. Porous surfaces, especially in water-loaded applications, should be primed with Soudal Primer 150. Smooth surfaces must be thoroughly degreased before application.

A preliminary adhesion test on each surface is recommended to guarantee compatibility and adhesion strength.


Application Method:

For bonding, apply Fix All X-Treme Power using a caulking gun.

Dispense the adhesive in beads or dabs spaced approximately every 15cm across one of the surfaces to be bonded, paying special attention to edges and corners.

Press the two surfaces together firmly and tap them with a rubber hammer to ensure full contact.

Depending on the weight and size of the materials, supporting the bonded items may be necessary until the adhesive has cured completely, typically within 24-48 hours.

 

Cleaning:

For cleaning uncured adhesive, Soudal Swipex Cleaning Wipes are effective and convenient. Should the adhesive cure before removal, mechanical means are required, and the use of Soudal Sealant Remover Spray is recommended, following the product's instructions for best results.

 

Remarks:

  • Fix All X-Treme Power is paintable with most water-based paints, however due to the large number of paints and varnishes available we strongly suggest a compatibility test before application.

  • The drying time of alkyd resin based paints may increase.

  • Fix All X-Treme Power can be applied to a wide variety of substrates. Due to the fact that specific substrates such as plastics, like polycarbonate, etc, may differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, we recommend preliminary compatibility test.

  • Fix All X-Treme Power can not be used as a glazing sealant.

  • Not suitable for bonding aquariums.

  • Fix All X-Treme Power can be used for bonding of natural stone, but it cannot be used as a joint sealant on this type of surface. Fix All X-Treme Power can therefore only be used on the bottom of natural stone tiles.

  • When applying, make sure not to spill any sealant on the surface of materials.
