UNIQUE COLD ADHESIVE SYSTEM
The application area of Glexo adhesive is very wide, but it must be understood that this product does not solve all the problems that expert can face. The level of adhesion can’t be compared with hot glue, so if it is necessary to "turn out a sharp crease" and the like – don’t expect that Glexo will accomplish this task alone.
During the tests that took place over the past two years, the main application areas of the composition and its properties were determined.
When lifting, the Glexo shares the force more evenly across the adapter area, compared to hot glue, which allows a more extensive and smooth lifting of metal. This makes Glexo indispensable when working with extensive dents that don’t have sharp creases, wrinkles, etc. A typical example is the repair of a roof after the fall of snow. In some cases, such repairs can be made without removing the ceiling casing, using only Glexo and the leveling tools. Such damages are not unusual on the other body elements, where Glexo is also great.
Especially good Glexo works on rounded surfaces and in combination with the technique of blending.
For example, when repairing a truss (roof truss), even if the dent or complex of damages is acute, and hot compositions are used, it is often possible to obtain a lot of highlights at the finish, which are very difficult to eliminate. Metal becomes less stable from the set of efforts applied, and during the "cleaning" of small irregularities it is necessary to operate especially carefully, not to deform the area even further. Sometimes it takes as much time as the main process of repairing a dent. Glexo does the same with soft suspenders, helping to get rid of glare quickly and bring the quality and smoothness of the surface to perfection!
The Glexo adhesive system excellently manifests itself in its field, with the following advantages:
Speed - quick readiness condition, operational use.
Economy - with proper use, the composition is durable, low spent and can be kept without special storage conditions.
The system can be used with any type of slide hammers, which significantly reduces its cost, weight and accelerates payback.
Simplicity and safety - the product works extremely clearly, can’t harm the car or the health of the specialist who uses it.
Glexo showed a high efficiency in leveling of sharp creases, for example, those that are formed because of "imprinting" of the internal amplifier.
When punching the top with very steep slopes, metal is deformed, which does not allow getting the proper effect. One should only "pull apart" the slopes in different directions and to remove the peak tension, as the fold starts to fall easier. Glexo adhesive composition is best of the best for this task. Otherwise, you have to work through the vast areas manually, or reuse a hot glue, waste a lot of time, material and will risk having surplus stretching of the repaired area.
Glexo can be used in almost any work, the range of applications is almost unlimited.
After working with Glexo, you want to have it on hand. Simplicity and economy of use, versatility of application and reasonable price make the Glexo cold adhesive a reliable assistant in the performance of PDR technology work!
Operation with the adhesive composition directly depends on the ambient temperature. At normal room temperature (18-25 ºС) it is necessary to bring the composition into an active state by kneading it with hands for 5-10 seconds directly on the pad. The glue will become more and more soft and sticky. The composition is ready for use when it begins to cling to hands well.
In case the ambient temperature is below 18 °C, it is necessary to warm up the composition more actively, which may require more time. In addition, it is necessary to warm up the area of the intended application on the body part to a temperature of 25-30ºС.
If the composition is overheated, it can become excessively plastic and sticky. In this case, you need to cool it, for example, by bringing it to the air conditioner, or put it in cool water. It is necessary to take into account, that the working properties of the composition return after the moisture dries completely. The same is true for the working surface.
The work surface must be degreased and completely cleaned of dirt before applying the adhesive composition.
Adhesion of the composition can deteriorate on surfaces covered with protective compounds (for example, so-called "ceramics", "liquid glass", etc.). In such case, it is recommended to abrasive the repaired area.
To keep the adhesive composition in working condition, avoid contamination. Store the glue in the attached anti-adhesive paper, to which the composition does not stick, regardless of storage conditions.
The working scheme with Glexo differs from the usual technique, specific for hot adhesives. Before starting work, the power adapter must be securely fixed on the slide hammer and installed at the repair area next. When setting up the adapter with the adhesive it is recommended to achieve proper adhesion by rubbing movements. Next, you should give some pause, depending on the task, usually 3-10 seconds. The jerk should be as sharp as possible, using heavy slide hammers preferable. After use, remains of adhesive are collected by its own mass in order to avoid consumption. Minor haloes of Glexo are removed by any degreaser.
It is recommended to test an amount of the adhesive on the adapter. Smaller quantity will not give a proper level of the adhesion. On the contrary, surplus will soften the impact, that will not allow to reveal the potential of the composition. The quantity of the adhesive is determined on the basis of the problem being solved, and is usually 10-20 g.
in specialized packaging, at a temperature not exceeding 40 °C.
Warranty period - 12 months.
During the creation of a valid version of Glexo adhesive composition we developed an application technique, that will fully reveal the potential of the Glexo system!
The efficiency of Glexo is influenced by speed, weight of the slide hammer, amount of glue on the adapter and time that the compound is in contact with the surface.
It is recommended to have a contact with the working surface for about 3-10 seconds. If it is necessary to get more impact on the repair area, it is recommended to give a slight stretch to the adapter before jerking, until the adapter begins to peel off the surface. The tension is created up to this point, then the vector of action on the metal by the direction of the axis of the slide hammer is set, after which its correction is made by the biting blow.
When setting up the pad, it is recommended to increase the adhesion by "rubbing" movements to ensure good adhesion to the working area.
After a little training, you will easily master the work with Glexo glue and it will become your irreplaceable assistant in almost all repairs. Unpretentious and reliable, and most importantly - safe, this product will be useful both for beginner and experienced specialist.
The peculiarity of work of Glexo cold glue is that the excellent pulling properties manifest only with a sharp impact.
That is, the mini lifter will not work. If you smoothly pull the adapter with cold glue, the composition will smoothly come off the surface or deform. With a sharp impact, the composition shows the properties of a non-Newtonian fluid and performs the necessary lifting of the metal.
At the same time, no matter how sharp and strong is the impact, due to greater viscosity, compared to hot compounds, the composition of Glexo does not create a concentrated effect, but lifts more gently and extensively. This allows you not to be afraid of "overdoing" when working, as it happens with a hot glue, when an inaccurate movement of the mini lifter can over draw the working fragment, unduly deforming it and creating unnecessary complications in further work with the damage.
These properties of the composition favorably distinguish Glexo and allow solving a wide range of tasks for repairs on PDR technology.
