Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) is a very effective agent for surface cleaning prior to bonding and also protecting against viruses such as Corona Virus (Covid-19), microbial bacteria and fungi. Our Eurobond 500ml bottles of Isopropyl alcohol (Isopropanol) contain a 70% IPA solution which is very effective in breaching cell walls and killing organisms.
All surfaces that require bonding should first be cleaned using Eurobond IPA liquid spray or Surface Cleaning wipes to remove any oil, grease or dirt, then lightly abraded and then cleaned again to remove any dust or debris. Do not use meths, white spirits or aromatic cleaners as these will leave a microscopic film on the substrate which will contaminate the bond line and act as a barrier preventing the adhesive from adhering properly to the surface. We also recommend using Protective Nitrile Gloves when handing adhesives.
