Substrates include concrete, stone, masonry, glass, wood, aluminum, stainless steel, high carbon, and mild steel. Submarine can be used as a general-purpose adhesive or patching compound. Reinforcement materials such as fiberglass cloth work well for applications requiring additional strength. Submarine can be easily sanded, filed, and drilled.
Note: Submarine is designed for scenarios where it’s not possible to dry the substrate. The bond strength of Submarine is good in less than ideal conditions. The integrity of the bond can degrade due to substrate corrosion or other deterioration from moisture. Because of this, periodic maintenance may be necessary.
The surface must be damp for Submarine to achieve its maximum bond strength. Make sure the surface is wet, clean and free from dirt, contaminants and loose material. Coarse Scotch-Brite pads work well for abrading uneven surfaces, otherwise, use 60-80 grit sandpaper.
Measuring and Mixing:
Using disposable safety gloves, combine equal parts of Submarine Resin (Part A) with Hardener (Part B). Mix the components until they are uniform in color.
If bonding two materials together, apply Submarine to both surfaces. Mate the objects together by gently moving them back and forth. If necessary, use a weighted object or support until Submarine has cured sufficiently. Rubber bands, string or elastic cordage can be used as well.
For patching operations, apply Submarine to the wet substrate. Then on a flat surface, work Submarine into the reinforcement material. Press the reinforcement material evenly onto the substrate. If necessary, add more Submarine to the reinforcement material and surrounding patch area.
