Special packaging is available upon request. EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE The product is best used at temperatures between 650 F and 800 F. Temperatures below 650 F will slow the cure speed of the material and viscosities will be higher. Temperatures above 800 F will cause the material to cure faster and viscosities will be lower. For consistent dispensing maintain temperature in the above mentioned range. STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE The shelf life of the MP55300 Series for most products is on

e year from date of shipment check with ASI. Shelf life is based on the products being stored properly at temperatures between 550 F and 750 F. Exposure to temperatures above 750 F will reduce the shelf life of these materials. These products should NEVER BE FROZEN. PRECAUTIONS ASIs MP55300 Series products are flammable. Keep away from heat spark and open flames. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. THE PRODUCT IS FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY. Keep containers closed when not in use. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Harmful if swallowed. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for complete safety information. HANDLING AND CLEAN-UP For optimum bond strength and to insure maximum performance in the finished assembly mate parts together within the specified work time of the adhesive. Make sure the bond joint has uniform coverage and that a sufficient amount of adhesive is in the bond area. It is important to have the adhesive applied parts aligned and positioned within the established work times for the product. To ensure maximum performance in the finished assembly parts should remain undisturbed until the fixture time is reached. Clean up is best before the adhesive has cured. Cleaners containing NMP N-methyl pyrolidone or Citrus terpene provide the best results. On cured adhesive repeat use may be required.
