Fusor 109B problems
Used this stuff for the first time today, and went through about 1/2 of a 50 oz pack using a caulk gun adapter. When I got done, I noticed that the lighter colored component had leaked a pretty good amount around the outside of the plunger instead of pushing through the nozzle. :mad:
I figure this has certainly affected the mix ratio. Is this going to cause me problems with curing? The stuff that is oozing out of the seams is turning green like it is supposed to do when it cures (per the data sheet). Anyone else had trouble with the stuff leaking around the plunger? Len?
Thanks in advance!
I know you receive two plungers with the kit, make sure you're using the correct one. If it's changing color you should be ok just be sure to keep it warm (70+) for about 24 hours.
It's been about 3 hrs... most is green, but there are a few small areas where the excess still looks a bit grey. I am definitely using the right plunger (2:1).
I'll keep the heat on it and hope for the best. The good news is that this is in a "hidden" area, not a 1/4 panel or something like that.
Hi, Check the date on the tube.
It maybe old stock Good luck. Ed
Date is Nov 2006. I bought it from Len a few months ago, so it is not old, out-of-date stock.
The stuff is still pretty tacky (I read that is normal), but mostly green. How can I tell if I am OK or not? How "sticky" is normal for cured adhesive?
Unlike other metal bonding materials the Fusor stays tacky where it's exposed. This is good because some of the other types of bonding materials get hard and crack as the metal expands and contracts as the temperature changes. Remove the exposed material with a small grinder and apply seam sealer or body filler over the seam, don't apply paint or anything else over exposed Fusor metal bonding material.
