SUGGESTED HANDLING & CURING: 115-08 is ready to use as supplied. Further thinning may be accomplished by adding small amounts of CMI Thinner #113-12 (slow drying) and/or xylene (fast drying). Prior to using, be certain to re suspend silver. Best properties, for most applications, result when allowed to dry at room temperature followed by curing for 5-10 min. at 175°C. Good properties are obtained on a variety of substrates by curing at temperatures ranging from 50°C to 150°C. End user is advised to experimentally determine temperature and time best suited for individual applications.

STORAGE: Shelf life: 6 months at -10°C.

SAFETY & HANDLING: Use with adequate ventilation. Keep away from sparks and open flames. Avoid prolonged contact with skin and breathing of vapors. Wash with soap and water to remove from skin.

All technical information is based on data obtained by CMI personnel and is believed to be reliable. No warranty is either expressed or implied with respect to suitability in a particular application or possible infringements on patents.
