Substrate Suitability:

Soudaseal Supertack is suitable for bonding on all usual substrates. These substrates should be rigid, clean, dry, and free of dust and grease to ensure optimal adhesion.

For porous surfaces in water-loaded applications, it is recommended to prime the surfaces with Soudal Primer 150. Non-porous surfaces should be prepared with Soudal Surface Activator or Soudal Cleaner & Degreaser Spray.

The product exhibits excellent adhesion on various metal surfaces, including stainless steel, AlMgSi1, electro-galvanised steel, AlCuMg1, hot-dip galvanised steel, AlMg3, and steel ST1403. It also adheres well to plastics such as polystyrene, polycarbonate (Makrolon®), PVC, ABS, polyamide, PMMA, fibreglass reinforced epoxy, and polyester.

Note that plastics often have releasing agents or protective foils that must be removed before bonding.

 

Surface Preparation:

Before applying Soudaseal Supertack, ensure all surfaces are properly prepared. For non-porous surfaces, use Soudal Surface Activator or Soudal Cleaner & Degreaser Spray to clean and degrease the substrates.

For porous surfaces, especially in water-loaded applications, apply Soudal Primer 150 to enhance adhesion. Make sure to remove any releasing agents, processing aids, or protective foils from plastic surfaces to prevent adhesion issues.

A preliminary adhesion and compatibility test on every surface is recommended to ensure optimal results. It is important to note that bonding certain plastics like PMMA (Plexi® glass) and polycarbonate (Makrolon® or Lexan®) in stress-loaded applications can cause stress cracking and crazing; thus, Soudaseal Supertack is not recommended for these applications.

 

Application Method:

To apply Soudaseal Supertack, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure the substrates are properly prepared as described above.

  2. Cut the nozzle of the cartridge at a 45-degree angle to the desired bead size and insert the cartridge into a caulking gun.

  3. Apply the adhesive onto one surface in beads or dabs, spacing them approximately every 15 cm. Make sure to apply adhesive to the edges and corners of panels to ensure secure bonding.

  4. Press the surfaces together firmly and batten down with a rubber hammer to ensure good contact and adhesion. Support of the bonded materials may be required until the adhesive cures.

  5. The bond can be fully loaded after 24 to 48 hours, depending on environmental conditions and the substrates involved.

 

Finishing:

Once the adhesive is applied and the surfaces are bonded, ensure the installation is neat and any excess adhesive is smoothed out.

The adhesive can be overpainted with most water-based paints, but a compatibility test is recommended before application to avoid any issues.

Alkyd resin-based paints may have an increased drying time when applied over the adhesive.

 

Cleaning:

For easy clean-up after application, use Soudal Swipex Cleaning Wipes to remove any uncured adhesive residue.

If the adhesive has already cured, mechanical removal with the assistance of Soudal Sealant Remover Spray is required. Ensure to follow the instructions provided with Soudal Sealant Remover Spray for effective removal.

 

Other Information:

Soudaseal Supertack is paintable with most water-based paints, but a compatibility test is strongly suggested due to the variety of paints and varnishes available.

The product is not suitable for use as a glazing sealant or for bonding aquariums.

It should not be used in applications where continuous water immersion is possible, and contact with bitumen, tar, or other plasticiser-releasing materials such as EPDM, neoprene, and butyl should be avoided to prevent discolouration and loss of adhesion.

The product conforms to LEED requirements for low-emitting materials and complies with SCAQMD rule 1168 and USGBC LEED 2009 Credit 4.1 regarding VOC content.

Q) Can Soudaseal Supertack be used in combination with other reactive joint sealants?

A) When using different reactive joint sealants, ensure the first joint sealant is completely hardened before applying the next one. This prevents any interaction that could affect the performance and curing of the sealants.

 

Q) Are there any limitations to using Soudaseal Supertack?

A) Yes, it should not be used on PE, PP, PTFE (e.g., Teflon®), bituminous substrates, copper, or copper-containing materials such as bronze and brass. It is also not recommended for bonding aquariums or in applications with continuous water immersion.

 

Q) How should surfaces be prepared for optimal adhesion of Soudaseal Supertack?

A) Surfaces should be clean, dry, and free of dust and grease. Non-porous surfaces should be treated with Soudal Surface Activator or Soudal Cleaner & Degreaser Spray. Porous surfaces should be primed with Soudal Primer 150.

 

Q) What are the advantages of using Soudaseal Supertack over traditional adhesives?

A) Soudaseal Supertack offers extreme initial grab, flexibility, primerless adhesion on various substrates, environmental safety, odourless application, fast curing, and excellent weather and UV resistance, making it superior to many traditional adhesives.

 

Q) Can Soudaseal Supertack be used for structural bonding in industrial applications?

A) Yes, Soudaseal Supertack is suitable for a range of industrial applications, providing strong and durable bonds for objects, panels, and profiles on common substrates. Its high initial tack and flexibility make it an excellent choice for industrial assembly and manufacturing processes.

 

Q) What should be done if Soudaseal Supertack discolours over time?

A) Discolouration can occur due to exposure to chemicals, high temperatures, or UV radiation. While a change in colour does not affect the technical properties of the product, it is important to avoid contact with bitumen, tar, or other plasticiser-releasing materials to prevent discolouration and loss of adhesion.

 

Q) Is Soudaseal Supertack suitable for use in renovation projects?

A) Yes, Soudaseal Supertack is ideal for renovation projects, providing strong and flexible bonds that accommodate structural movements and environmental changes. It is used for bonding and securing various materials in renovation applications.

 

Q) How does Soudaseal Supertack accommodate thermal expansion and vibrations?

A) Once cured, Soudaseal Supertack remains elastic, allowing it to accommodate thermal expansion and vibrations between bonded surfaces. This flexibility ensures long-term durability and reliability of the bond, even in dynamic environments.

 

Q) What certifications does Soudaseal Supertack have?

A) Soudaseal Supertack has a low emission certification (EC1 PLUS R) and conforms to the requirements of LEED for low-emitting materials. It complies with SCAQMD rule 1168 and USGBC LEED 2009 Credit 4.1 concerning VOC content.

 

Q) Can Soudaseal Supertack be used in both indoor and outdoor applications?

A) Yes, Soudaseal Supertack is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Its excellent weather and UV resistance make it ideal for outdoor use, while its low emissions and odourless properties make it suitable for indoor environments.

 

Q) What should be done if Soudaseal Supertack comes into contact with materials that release plasticisers?

A) Contact with bitumen, tar, or other plasticiser-releasing materials such as EPDM, neoprene, and butyl should be avoided, as this can cause discolouration and loss of adhesion. If contact occurs, it is important to ensure proper surface preparation and compatibility testing before application.
