Substrate Suitability:

Soudal Fix All X-Treme Power EXPRESS 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.

It adheres exceptionally well to metals such as stainless steel, AlMgSi1, electro-galvanized steel, AlCuMg1, hot dip galvanized steel, AlMg3, and steel ST1403.

It also has good adhesion to plastics including polystyrene, PVC, polyamide, fiberglass reinforced epoxy, and polyester.

However, it's important to note that it is not suitable for PE, PP, PTFE, bituminous substrates, copper, or copper-containing materials like bronze and brass.

Special caution should be taken with plastics prone to stress cracking and crazing, such as PMMA and polycarbonate, where the product is not recommended for use.

 

Surface Preparation:

Proper surface preparation is key to achieving a strong and durable bond.

Fix All X-Treme Power EXPRESS has primerless adhesion on most surfaces, however porous surfaces in water-loaded applications should be primed with Soudal Primer 150 to ensure optimum adhesion. Smooth surfaces must be thoroughly degreased before application to remove any contaminants that could impair the adhesive's performance.

Additionally, when bonding plastics, any releasing agents, processing aids, or other protective agents must be removed. The use of a Surface Activator is recommended to enhance adhesion on challenging surfaces.

Conducting a preliminary adhesion and compatibility test on each surface is crucial to ensure the suitability of the product for your specific application.

 

Application Method:

For application, use a caulking gun to apply the adhesive onto one of the surfaces in beads or dabs, spacing them approximately every 15cm, especially focusing on the edges and corners of panels for a secure bond.

After applying the adhesive, press the two surfaces together firmly and batten them down with a rubber hammer to ensure full contact and eliminate any air pockets.

Depending on the weight and dimensions of the materials being bonded, supporting the materials until the adhesive has fully cured, which typically takes between 24-48 hours, may be necessary.

 

Finishing:

Soudal Fix All X-Treme Power EXPRESS offers good workability for finishing applications.

Once the adhesive is applied and the materials are in place, any excess adhesive should be smoothed out promptly before it begins to cure to ensure a clean and professional finish.

The product's fast curing nature requires quick action to achieve the desired aesthetics.

 

Cleaning:

For cleaning uncured adhesive, Soudal Swipex Cleaning Wipes are effective and provide a convenient solution for removing any excess or spills.

In the event that the adhesive cures before removal, mechanical means of removal are required. Soudal Sealant Remover Spray can be used to aid in the removal of cured adhesive, following the product's instructions for the best results.

 

Remarks:

  • Fix ALL X-Treme Power Express 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.

  • Fix ALL X-Treme Power Express 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.

  • Not suitable for bonding aquariums.

  • Do not use in applications where continuous water immersion is possible.

  • When using different reactive joint sealants, the first joint sealant must be completely hardened before the next one is applied.

  • Fix ALL X-Treme Power Express has a good UV resistance but can discolour under extreme conditions or after very long UV exposure.

  • Discoloration due to chemicals, high temperatures, UV-radiation may occur. A change in colour does not affect the technical properties of the product.

  • Contact with bitumen, tar or other plasticizer releasing materials such as EPDM, neoprene, butyl, etc. is to be avoided since it can give rise to discolouration and loss of adhesion.
