Firestone Bonding Adhesive is designed for bonding Firestone PondGard EPDM Pond Liner and Firestone 45 mil EPDM Pond Liner to wood, metal, masonry and other substrates. This pond liner glue is extremely effective and has exceptional bonding capabilities.
Clean surfaces of foreign materials and excess dusting agent. Dry Surface.
Stir the Firestone Bonding Adhesive thoroughly before and during use, achieving a uniform mix with no sediment on the bottom and no marbling evident. Apply this pond liner adhesive with a solvent resistant paint roller. To allow approximately the same flash off time, be sure to roll the underside of the EPDM pond liner and the substrate to which it will be adhered one right after the other. Apply the pond liner adhesive evenly to avoid .The adhesive can also be sprayed on surface. Goal should be to ensure 100% coverage on surface. Care must be taken not to apply Bonding Adhesive over any area that is to be later cleaned and spliced to another sheet or flashing.
Allow the Firestone Bonding Adhesive to flash off completely according to the touch-push test (usually less than 15 minutes, flash off time will vary depending on ambient air conditions).
Starting at the fold, roll the previously coated portion of the EPDM pond liner into the coated substrate slowly and evenly so as to minimize wrinkles. To ensure proper contact, compress the bonded half of the EPDM pond liner to the substrate with a stiff broom using heavy pressure.
Pond Liner Adhesive: Firestone Bonding Adhesive Coverage Rate
Depending on the substrate, approximately 45-60 square feet per gallon may be obtained from this pond liner glue. Some surfaces are more uneven and porous and will result in lower cover rate while smooth, while non-porous surfaces may result in higher coverage rates. Rates are based on roller application to both mating surfaces. When sprayed and back-rolled, the coverage rate may be slightly higher than when rolled only.
