How to use

Application Temperature:
Between 1℃ and 30℃
(Lower temperatures will increase thickness)
Surface preparation:
Clean surface to remove grease and contamination. Then apply Formoa surface activator prior to bonding and allow 10 minutes to flash off.
Method will depend on foil pack or cartridge use. If unsure on the correct method of application, follow your company's SOP or watch the 'How-To' video in the media section below.
Use an approved soapy solution before the skin over time.




Formoa 017FE typically takes 2-4 hours to reach handling strength and up to 72 hours to reach full strength. While Formoa adhesives and sealants are designed to cure efficiently under various conditions, high humidity can accelerate the curing process, and colder temperatures might slow it down. Always refer to the specific product datasheet for precise curing times under different conditions. Read more about what affects adhesive cure time here.

Absolutely. Formoa 017FE has excellent UV and weather resistance, making it ideal for both interior and exterior uses. The non-shrinking and non-yellowing properties ensure a clean and durable finish over time.

MS polymer adhesive stands for ""Modified Silane polymer adhesive."" It's a hybrid adhesive and sealant technology that combines the best features of both polyurethane (PU) and silicone sealants. MS polymer products are free from solvents, isocyanates, and acids, which makes them safe to use, environmentally friendly, and reduces the risk of shrinkage after curing.

Our Formoa adhesives and sealants typically have a shelf life of 12 months when stored in a cool, dry place. However, always check the product label or datasheet for specific details.

Yes, once fully cured, Formoa adhesives can be painted over with standard paints. It's always a good practice to test a small area first to ensure compatibility.

The letters FE in the name originated when the original product (Formoa 017) was adjusted for applications in the Far East. Formoa 017 was too fast curing for hot and humid applications so 017FE was formulated to suit these applications. It has since become one of the most popular Formoa products.
