Sika® Aktivator-205 is an alcohol solution containing a bond-activating substance designed for the activation of surfaces prior to bonding and sealing with Sika® products. Sika® Aktivator-205 is manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001 / 14001 quality assurance system and with the responsible care program.
Areas of Application
Sika® Aktivator-205 is used to activate the following non-porous substrates: metals, plastics, enamelled glass (ceramics), painted surfaces. This product is suitable for experienced professional users only. Tests with actual substrates and conditions, especially boundary temperature conditions have to be performed to ensure adhesion and material compatibility.
Method of Application
Wipe bond faces with a clean lintfree paper towel moistened with Sika® Aktivator-205. Change paper towel after each wipe. If pretreated area is not bonded after 2 hours the activation process has to be repeated (max. 2 times). Ideal application and surface temperature is between 15°C and 25°C (60 – 75°F). Consumption depends on the specific nature of the substrates and manufacturing process. Tightly re-seal container immediately after each use. Prolonged exposure to atmospheric moisture will cause Sika® Aktivator-205 to become opaque/cloudy and therefore inactive. Discard any product in this condition. Flash-off times may vary depending on climatic conditions.
