MIXING & CURING INSTRUCTIONS:
R-1120 A is processed by adding the curing agent B. Part B should be shaken prior to use. The addition of 10% catalyst (by
weight) has a pot life of 15 minutes*. Since material is clear, a double mix—mixing in one container then transferring to another and
remixing—is recommended to ensure a thorough mix. Pot life will vary due to environmental changes. A pre-test of a small amount
will determine work time, usually 15 minutes. Pressure pot may be used to assure bubble release and clarity. ** Large sections over
1" thick could take up to 3-5 days to properly dry. Please contact your Silpak technician for assistance in your application of R-1120
A/B. This material can dry differently from summer to winter. Accelerated cures not recommended.
STORAGE/SHELF LIFE:
A and B components must be stored in their original, unopened containers at temperatures between 60-90F. Shelf life of materials
when kept in unopened, sealed containers, at the recommended storage conditions, is 6 months
