Jointing for translucent resin panel

Author : Date : 2/7/2012 2:51:59 AM




This part of the fabrication process is definitely the most critical. A good job will give excellent, long-term results. A poor job however, will give noticeable unsightly lines and / or inferior strength



Because our products is a translucent products, if any of the surfaces to be joined, or the adhesive itself, or even the table used for gluing has any dirt, or other foreign component, in or on it or them, then the joint may be stained

For these reasons, it is essential that the areas to be joined are well cleaned. We recommend the use of “acetone” to ensure scrupulously clean surfaces before joining “acetone” should be applied with white tissue paper – do not use rags for clearing as any unfast colours (even white) will be transmitted to the adhesive via the surface, so contaminating the joint


b)       Gluing panel to panel


To glue and join panel to panel, adhesive compound must used, for plain colours, use the same color tone as the surfaces being joined. For texture colors- where available use compound matched for the subject texture, else use clear compound.

Surfaces to be glued require a 0.3mm tolerance between them and they must be able to meet each other at the joining pont, free of any pressure being applied. Clamps should only be needed to hold the joint down onto the other ot to force the two pieces together. This type of force can create stress at the joint point and then ultimately cause failure in or neatr the joint

When gluing horizontally, all surfaces must be sanded before the adhesive compound is applied. This is essential, as there is still an amount of mould release present on the top and bottom surfaces. Failure to sand both surfaces will cause joint separation at a later date


C     Gluing panel to other material


Where the panel is to be glued to other materials, such as timber, metal, tiles or other building materials, a flexible silicone adhesive should be used. The adhesive must be of a flexible type to ensure strength and flexibility to allow for movement caused by expansion or contraction


   Where a full timber backing is used under panel bench-top, or where the panel is to be glued to other materials over a large area, do not glue the whole of the contract surfaces. Lines of silicone over the area will be sufficient and allow 1mm per metre gap near build up for expansion and contraction.
