Combining the benefits of a contact adhesive with a high level of water resistance, this product provides an ideal method of fitting Treadmaster. With no mixing and the ability to walk on the deck immediately after fitting, Treadmaster Marine Contact is ideal for fixing to fibreglass, wood or steel decks.Treadmaster Marine Contact adhesive will try to immediately 'grab' whatever surface it is applied to, this can mean that it can be difficult to move sheets around to get an exact positioning once the material is in place.
The adhesive will begin to harden quite quickly, but the final bond strength is less than you would get with an epoxy adhesive; this does mean that it is easier to remove when you want to replace the sheets, but not as good at holding them in position Another important fact to consider with Contact adhesives is that they begin to soften with temperature, and if your boat is in the Mediterranean you could find that on a very hot day the adhesive will soften quite considerably, and so we would not recommend their use in very warm climates.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE (Contact Adhesive)
Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil and grease.
Existing paint, vanish, waxes, polishes, etc., must be removed.
Stir thoroughly before use. The adhesive can be applied by brush or roller coater. Cut the Treadmaster to shape and mask off the deck area to fit exactly the Treadmaster panel. A space of 1-2" should be left between adjacent panels. Apply a thin, even coat of adhesive to both surfaces, work fairly quickly and take care to keep the adhesive away from the face side of the Treadmaster. Allow to dry until the adhesive is only just touch dry (5 - 10 minutes depending on temperature). Then align the panel carefully and bring into contact with the deck surface, applying firm pressure, preferably with a small hand roller over the whole panel. Work from the centre to the edge to avoid air entrapment.
Keep containers closed and in a cool (10°C - 20°C) dry place away from direct sunlight.

We cannot predict the cost to ship hazardous materials outside of UK. If your purchase includes a gas inflating lifejacket we can send it overseas only by first removing the gas bottle. You will have to find a local source to replace this bottle for the lifejacket to function. We cannot send re-arm kits overseas.
We cannot send other hazardous goods including liferafts, paint and antifouling overseas without first getting a special delivery quotation. After all these hurdles we put up, please do not be alarmed - if you need a liferaft delivered to the Baltic, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, simply contact us for a quote. You can be confident our delivered price will still be better than local sourcing.
