How To

APPLICATION: Bona R880 needs to be applied using a standard 10 oz. caulking applicator. 1. Cut
end of tube above threads to expose adhesive. 2. Attached supplied applicator tip to threaded end of
R880 tube. 3. Remove threaded cap and cut applicator tip to desired bead size. 4. Apply sufficient
material to the surface or surfaces being bonded. Open time for R880 is 10 minutes. NOTE: For heavier
applications, especially on vertical surfaces, the use of mechanical fasteners or temporary support may
be necessary until bonding strength is achieved. If additional bond strength is needed, lightly misting
the substrate surface or the applied adhesive with water will accelerate the initial bonding strength. The
addition of water will decrease the open time to 5 minutes. 5. Position material to substrate as desired.
6. Save any remaining materials by attaching provided cap.

CLEAN-UP: Wet R880 can be cleaned up with mineral spirits. Once dried, mechanical cleaning may
be necessary.

STORAGE: Store in a climate-controlled environment. Keep from freezing. Do not store for extended
periods above 90°F (32°C).
