How To Use Cascamite Wood Glue
Mix by either weight or volume. Mixing by weight will give the most accurate and consistent glue mixes.
Use two parts Cascamite powder to one part cold water.
If mixing by volume, 3.5 measures of Cascamite powder are required to 1 measure of cold water.
For both methods mix as follows:
1. Put half the cold water into a non metallic mixing vessel.
2. Add all the Cascamite powder and stir until dissolved.
3. Add all the remaining water and stir until the mixture is smooth.
4. It is now ready for use and will remain usable for about 1 hour at 15°c
Use a stiff brush to apply adhesive to one surface only. Assemble and clamp (pin or screw) the joint whilst the glue is still wet. Keep the joint under pressure until set (around 6 hours at 15°c, longer at lower temperatures). A damp cloth should be used to remove excess wet adhesive from the joint.
Synthetic glues may cause dermatitis in some people. As a precaution, any glue spilt on the hands should be removed immediately with soap and water before it sets. Avoid the formation or spread of dust in the air. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.
