DAI Epoxy EA 555 - Fast Set 5-Min Steel Filled-Medium Viscosity-Metallic Gray Epoxy-1:1 ratio
DAI Epoxy EA 555 is a 2-part (steel filled for extra strength) chemical and solvent resistant epoxy adhesive with a fast set time of 4 - 6 minutes. When mixed in equal volumes of resin and hardener, it reacts to give a rigid and tough bond. This product is dark grey and machinable to give a metallic finish. EA 555 is recommended to bond aluminum, concrete and other metals. It has a set time (working life) of 4-6 minutes, and handling strength can be achieved in about 15 - 20 minutes with a full cure in 24 hours.
Please Note: These cartridges are designed to work best with a 50ml or 400ml cartridge Dispenser, respectively. We advise you use a 50ml or 400ml Dispenser for all respective cartridges. If you do not have one, please check out our Dispensers, all are excellent products and have our 'it's good' seal of approval.
If you prefer not to use a Dispenser, we have some 50ml kits that include hand tools or caulking dispenser adapters, as pictured, that you can use for fast small jobs. But the 400ml cartridges really need to use a 400ml Dispenser, they're just too big to effectively use without the dispenser.

Directions of applications
Wipe off and degrease the surface to be bonded. Dispense a desirable amount of adhesive using a dispensing dispenser. The nozzle sizes can be selected according to the desired bond thickness. Join the substrates with in 4 minutes and allow it to cure at room temperature. Do not disturb the parts during the curing process. Excess adhesive can be wiped off. (For optimum strengths, surface preparation for the metals like sandblast, etching will be needed).
