Resorcinol and Prefere 4094
I'm watching all of the discussions about boatbuilding adhesives and the plusses and minuses of resorcinol in particular. A gap-filling resorcinol would seem to be the ideal. While googling around, came across this flyer from Dynea which discussed both Aerodux 185 and Prefere 4094:
Anyone use the stuff? I googled but could not find a tech data sheet. Probably for mass industrial use.
Prefere 4094 is a special phenol resorcinol adhesive which is used under conditions where a thick glue line cannot be avoided, for example because the surfaces of the adherends are uneven or because the pressure available is insufficient to ensure thin glue lines.
Potential fields of use of Prefere 4094 include nail gluing and two-step gluing of laminated timber.
Prefere 4094 gives absolutely weather resistant bonds conforming to Type I according to EN 301.
The Norwegian Institute of Wood Technology recommends that Prefere 4094 is allowed for bonding untreated structures of coniferous woods provided the glue line thickness does not exceed 2 mm.
Prefere 4094 has been tested according to the German Standard DIN 68 141 by the Otto-Graf-Institut (MPA) in Germany and
found to suited for gluing load-bearing wooden structures for indoor and exterior use in accordance with DIN 1052.
What is "glue nailing"? I googled it and think I know, but would rather be sure. Same question wrt to two step gluing of laminated timbers.
It will all be OK in the end...so if it's not OK, you're not at the end.
