Note on Paintability:

Note: The contents contained in this documentation are the result of our experiments and our experienceand have been submitted in good faith. Because of the diversity of the materials and substrates and the real number of possible applications which are out of our control we cannot accept any responsibility for the results obtained. In every case it is recommended to carry out preliminary experiments and compatibility tests.

Paint, varnish and other coatings do not adhere to Fix3. Be sure to thoroughly clean any surrounding surfaces that are to be painted with a good industrial alcohol cleaner to remove any contaminants that may cause “Fish Eye”!.

Test surfaces before painting.

Applications:

Fix3 is suitable for bonding Flexiteek, PVC composite, cork and other decking materials. Once fully cured, an elastic non-shrink adhesive layer is formed, which is resistant to moisture and heat. Fix3 has excellent adhesion to most common substrates within the marine, transport and construction industries.

Fix3 can be applied to a wide variety of

substrates. Due to the fact that the specific properties of substrates will differ from manufacturer to manufacturer we strongly recommend compatibility test.

. Cleaning of teak decks: see also separate instruction sheet “Teak Deck Cleaning Guide” We recommend cleaning the deck with (salt) water and a scourer pad. The scourer should be used across the direction of the teak strokes. After the cleaning we recommend to flush the deck with fresh or salt water. We strictly do not recommend the use of detergents, cleaners and other chemicals as they might effect the caulk in the deck.
