Prep & Cleanup

How to prepare a surface for bonding with PC-Fahrenheit™

Remove contaminants such as dust, dirt, oil and grime with a solvent such as denatured alcohol (ethanol), acetone, rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or lacquer thinner. Mild detergent solution in water is also good removing contaminants. Use a clean paper towel or rag for wiping. Remove rust and loose paint with sandpaper or wire brush. Epoxy typically sticks to most paints. If there is a concern of the paint’s adhesion then remove it with sandpaper, wire brush or paint stripper. Smooth, glossy and shiny surfaces should be roughened using sandpaper to increase adhesion. Adhesion to wet or damp surfaces can be improved by wiping with alcohol. Do not use mineral spirits or paint thinner for removing contaminants.


How to clean-up after PC-Fahrenheit™ application

We recommend wearing disposable gloves when mixing and applying epoxy putty. Remove from skin with soap and warm water. Clean up mixed epoxy before it cures with paper towels and solvent. Denatured alcohol (ethanol), acetone, rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or lacquer thinner are suitable solvents for removing uncured epoxy. Cured epoxy can be physically removed by prying off with a screw driver or pliers. It can also be removed with paint stripper or remover.

Troubleshooting

PC-Fahrenheit™ was used to plug an exhaust leak near the catalytic converter and now it has a bad odor

Engine exhaust is very hot, especially at the catalytic converter where the temperature can exceed 260°C/500°F. The smell may diminish eventually or you can remove the cured epoxy and replace the leaking converter.
