Prepare the surface

First make sure that the surfaces are solid and stable.

Check for cracks and imperfections in the glued materials.

Make sure that the glued surfaces are free of dust and loose particles. All dust and loose particles can be swiped away mechanically (e.g. with a brush) or with compressed air. Any residue of previously used adhesive should also be removed before Tytan 60 Seconds is applied.

Some building materials are coated with an oily, hydrophobic layer in the manufacturing process. Check for a greasy surface simply by brushing your finger against the glued surface. If in doubt, consult the technical documentation supplied with the materials.

All greasy substances, including coating, will dramatically reduce the adhesive strength and must be removed before the adhesive is applied. Most coatings can be removed manually with sanding paper.

How to use 60 Seconds Gun

Remove the protective cap.

Put the protective gloves on. You will find them attached to the bottom of the protective cap.

Remove the adaptor lid to get access to the valve.

Grab the can and shake it top to – bottom for 30 seconds. Make sure you shake the can well

Screw a foam gun on the can. Make sure the gun is secured tightly on the can. The black plastic adaptor on top of the Tytan 60 Seconds can matches most foam guns available on the market.

Turn the set upside-down, that is into its working position.

Use the knob positioned at the back end of the gun in order to regulate the adhesive stream. You can also use the gun trigger to do so manually.

Apply the adhesive according to instructions provided.

Before applying the adhesive, make sure the gun outlet is clean. Uncured adhesive can be washed away using Tytan Professional Cleaner or a paper towel.

Cleaning the tip

Cleaning surface

In some applications, a smaller bead and a more precise outflow is beneficial.

In order to regulate the bead size, you can either control the pressure applied on the gun trigger or use the knob situated at the back of the gun. Turn the knob clockwise to limit the fl ow of the adhesive. Turn the knob anti-clockwise to achieve a faster outfl ow and a wider adhesive bead.

Application tips

Tytan 60 Seconds is a polyurethane adhesive, which cures in reaction with moisture acquired from the air. The adhesive has been tested to achieve tack after 60 seconds in 23°C and 50% relative humidity. If you are unsure about the climatic conditions on your jobsite, there is a simple test you can perform to see when the adhesive reaches tack and what the open time is.

Apply a 2-3cm wide bead of adhesive.

Use a disposable item (such as a piece of plastic or glove) to touch and smear the skin of the adhesive after 45’, 60’, 75’ and so on. The moment you see the adhesive stick to the item and form strings 5-10cm long is the moment when the adhesive reaches maximum tack.

Make sure you do not use the adhesive after a thick skin is formed. If you were too late in the open time window, peel off the adhesive remainder and apply a new layer.

Safety information

Keep away from children

Tytan 60 Seconds is a professional building adhesive, which should be used only as instructed. Make sure it is stored away from children. The valve should be secured from being accidentally actuated.

PPE

Make sure that proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is worn when working with Tytan 60 Seconds. Always use working gloves or disposable gloves to protect the skin on your hands. Always use protective glasses to protect your eyes from accidental contamination. Should the adhesive get into your eyes, rinse it away with plenty of water. If you are wearing contact lenses, remove them and continue rinsing with water.

Work in ventilated areas

Tytan 60 Seconds contains a flammable gas in order to propel the adhesive out of the can. When the adhesive is applied, the gas is released to your direct surroundings. In order to maintain a healthy and safe workplace, make sure that the product is used in a well-ventilated area.
