EPI also offers a modified contact adhesive for seaming PVC geomembrane. This type of adhesive is commonly referred to as a Bodied Adhesive or Bodied Solvent.
- Apply one coat to each surface. The application should be made to the bond coated surface to coated surface, using roller pressure to mate the surfaces.
- Apply adhesive to both sheets with a brush. Although the material may be bonded while wet, optimal results are achieved when waiting 3-5 minutes before bonding the surfaces together. Allow the adhesive to become tacky.
- As with any product, the bodied solvent adhesive should be field-tested on substrate specimens under actual working conditions to guarantee the development of maximum bond values.
- Roll seam to complete adhesion.
