TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy can form a good bond to ABS plastic only if the surface has been properly prepared.
Clean the surface completely. Remove any surface contaminants, dust, dirt, grease, oils, moisture, waxes or other substances. There are three surface preparation methods (choose one):
• Use acetone as a quick surface wipe that will change the surface of the plastic; do not allow acetone to sit on the surface.
• Quickly flame/heat treat the surface — do not singe, burn, or melt the plastic.
• Sand the surface heavily with 80-grit (or coarser) sandpaper, then remove all sanding residue.
Apply High Performance Epoxy immediately after performing the surface treatment.
