Woodwork Adhesive Technical Data Sheet
Antel Woodwork Adhesive is a fully compounded vinyl acetate homopolymer dispersion for use in adhesive applications. It is a stable dispersion of inert polymer particles in water. A low hazard product.
A fast rate of bond strength for timbers. It exhibits very good viscosity stability with very low timber staining characteristics.
500gm, 1kg, 2.5kg, 5kg and 25kg plastic containers.
To maintain the product in a good condition store in secure, cool, dry conditions in original closed containers between 5°C and 30°C. Protect from freezing. Keep out of reach of children. Storage for no longer than six months is recommended under the above conditions.
Viscous White liquid.
6. HEALTH & SAFETY
No respiratory protection is required if using in well ventilated areas but if using by spray or in poorly ventilated areas a face mask, safety glasses and protective gloves/clothing should be used. If inhaled remove to fresh air. Irritating to eyes and skin. If in contact with the eyes flush with copious amounts of water and consult a doctor. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.

7. SPILLAGE OR LEAKAGES
Contain and absorb the spill with sand or earth and transfer to containers for recovery or disposal. Surfaces may be slippery whilst the product is in its wet state but will become progressively stickier as the water component evaporates. This product does not represent any significant hazard to water courses or aquatic life.
