Treadmaster Marine Epoxy adhesive is a two part adhesive, when the two parts are mixed together the adhesive will harden over time, this hardening process is much slower than with a contact adhesive (a pot life of about 1 hour is usual although this will reduce as the temperature rises); and the adhesive is initially more liquid allowing much easier moving of the Treadmaster sheets to get an exact position. As the adhesive takes time to harden, once the sheets are in position they should be weighted down in order to hold them in position whilst the adhesive hardens. However, once the adhesive had hardened Treadmaster Marine Epoxy gives a very strong bond that is not affected by temperature (except at very high temperatures, i.e. significantly above 70°C). This does make removal much more difficult.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE (2 Pack Epoxy)
One complete pack is sufficient for two full 1200 x 900 mm sheets of Treadmaster. If smaller quantity is required, Part A and Part B should be mixed in equal amounts.
Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil and grease. Existing paint, vanish, waxes, polishes, etc., must be removed. Fiberglass, aluminum and steel surfaces should be lightly abraded with a nylon scouring pad and all dust removed.
Prepare the Treadmaster and deck before mixing the resin. Transfer the contents of container B into container A and mix thoroughly until the colour is consistent throughout the mix.
Once mixed, the adhesive must be used without delay - under average environmental conditions a pot life of 20 minutes in the tin can be expected. Spreading the adhesive on to a flat plate after mixing will extend the useful pot life by helping to dissipate heat generated by the curing reaction.
The adhesive should not be used when ambient temperatures are below 10°C or above 30°C.
Immediately after use, clean tools, mixing vessels, brushes, etc. with methylated spirit
Apply adhesive using a serrated scraper, to the underside of the Treadmaster. Position the Treadmaster and carefully roll from centre to edge, apply pressure to consolidate the adhesive layers, ensuring that no air is trapped between the surfaces.
Where possible, adhesive should be allowed to extrude between the edges of adjacent mats, to give a positive seal against ingress of water. Excess adhesive should be wiped off promptly with methylated spirit. Depending on environmental conditions the adhesive will begin to set in 2 - 4 hours and full strength will be achieved after 24 hours.

Free delivery is for a single complete shipment of an order.
Extra charges apply for next day deliveries and Saturday deliveries, and deliveries to Highlands, Islands and Northern Ireland. If you are fortunate enough to be in the Channel Islands, please use Jersey or Guernsey as the country to get the ex-VAT figures.
Small, but valuable items such as Electronic Charts are charged at the £6.99 rate as we usually send by courier so they can be tracked. Rolled up Admiralty charts are £4.99, but Admiralty folios are packed flat and too large to go by post and are £6.99.
Delivery charges may be changed without notice. Any overcharge of delivery cost will be refunded.
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.
