FAQ I dont get

Right here goes, and this is not a dig or insult to the person who wrote this, i am at the moment going to replace my rubbing strake, and I am looking for tips as always before I undertake this task.

I have looked in FAQ's and below the answer for the sticking of the parts is unclear to me, as seen in the bold text this is what throws me as it says once the glue is dry......... am I just reading this wrong???

Q How should I glue on a patch / rubbing strake / grab handle?

Generally you need to prepare the surfaces so they are clean and free of grease, apply a thin coat of the correct adhesive to each item and once the glue is dry, to push the two parts together.

Think dry means as in not stick runny and gooey! Just gone off - like using a lot of 'normal' glues....

I was equally suspicious when I did my lifeline handles but it worked OK!

Most contact adhesives when being applied to two seperate parts need to be dry before being glued together.. Altho when I did mine, I waited 40 minutes and in the end put them together when touch tacky..

The adhesive is obviously of the Impact kind. This is the normal procedure with Impact Adhesive i.e Evo stick (R) although for what you require Evo stick (R) would not be suitable.

Good luck with the job

Most 2 part tube adhesives are put on in three stages.

1) Apply 1 coat to each surface being bonded.

Allow 20 mins to dry.

2) Apply 2nd coat to each surface.

Allow 2 mins.

3) Apply 3rd coat to each surface.

When both surfaces are touch dry (you can put your fingure on it and the glue doesn't come off) push both surfaces together and smooth out any air bubbles. If possible clamp together until fully bonded.

Make sure you get it all lined up before sticking as once you touch the 2 surfaces together the glue will bond instantly and any attempt to pull it off usually results in pulling the glue off one side or the other.

Gluing Together

Most 2 part tube adhesives are put on in three stages.

Allow 2 mins.

3) Apply 3rd coat to each surface.

Make sure you get it all lined up before sticking as once you touch the 2 surfaces together the glue will bond instantly and any attempt to pull it off usually results in pulling the glue off one side or the other.

A little tip when mixing the 2 Pack glue add a little toulene to thin the mixture down, make it easier to work with and timing is not so critical. Remeber to abrade the area you are working on and the patch you are applying. I have just done some work on my own Boat and it does work. Preperation is the key.

Good luck

Cheers Folks I'll let you know how it all goes.

Firstly though I'll contact Arco about that adhesive, and order my bump strakes and prepare the tubes.

But I am grateful of all the info as doing a job to your own suff is always daunting when not having done it before.
