Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use 18122 urethane for windshield installation?

18122 is not designed for windshield replacement. Its drying is not fast enough to comply with the industry requirements. We recommend 20100 Fast Cure Windshield Adhesive. Follow direction for use.

How can I reduce epoxy primer to be able to use it as a primer sealer?

Primers can be reduced with 13562/13566 Urethane reducer if the primer needs to be converted to a sealer. Follow mixing and application instructions on containers of both products.

Can paint stripper be used safely on plastic and fiberglass?

Must be used with control and care. Applied on a small surface allows more control. On plastic or fiberglass, paint stripper must be removed as soon as the paint blisters. Rinse with water to neutralize the residues of the paint stripper.

Which cleaner should I use when preparing fiber parts or plastics prior to repair?

It is important to clean plastic and fiber with an isopropyl alcohol based plastic cleaner such as 19040. A more aggressive solvent could penetrate the substrate and could jeopardize adhesion of the topcoat.

Can I reduce rustproofing to make its application easier?

Rustproofing can be thinned up if it has thickened through time. We recommend using mineral spirits. Note that this increases flammability of the mixture. It is important to spray in a well ventilated area and on a cool surface. Do not apply rustproofing to rubber, plastic, fiberglass or electric, brake or exhaust components.
