Methylethylketone is flammable and toxic and shall be used only in a
well-ventilated area away from all sparks or open flame. Gloves and
safety goggles should be worn during use.
Wipe sanded surface with clean cloth dampened in solvent and immediately wipe solvent from surface
with a clean, dry cloth.
Mask sanded surface with masking tape (1).
Mix a small quantity of adhesive (2) in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
Using spatula or putty knife (3), fill damaged area with adhesive.
Cure adhesive at room temperature (75 degrees F) for 72 hours. Alternate cures can be achieved by
exposing the repaired area to 150 degrees F for 3 to 4 hours, or 200 degrees F for 40 to 60 minutes. If
150 degree F or 200 degree F cures are used, allow additional time for repaired area to warm to curing
temperature and ensure that the surface temperatures of the CBC do not exceed 225 degrees F.
Sand surface of cured adhesive to conform to surrounding area.
Remove masking tape (1) and clean repaired surface.
Apply alodine solution. Apply the alodine solution with a brush, paint spray gun, cellulose sponge, etc.,
to the cleaned and rinsed aluminum surface, liberally, quickly and evenly. Allow it to act from 1 to 5
minutes before rinsing.
The solution should be applied to only as much surface as can be coated and rinsed before the
alodine solution dries.
Proceed with the coating and rinsing until the entire surface is coated with alodine.
Rinse. Before the alodine solution dries, wipe it from the surface with a clean cloth or sponge wet with
clean water. The alodine solution may also be rinsed from the surface with clean water from a hose.
Dry. After the rinsing has been finished, allow the work to air dry. Drying can be speeded by wiping with
clean, dry rags. Clean, dry, compressed air should be used to blow moisture from joints, depressions,
etc., and to speed the drying. When the surface is entirely dry, the part is ready for service without further
treatment, or if desired, it may be painted in accordance with manufacturer's directions.
