Maintain light pressure during cure for optimum bonding. wollastonite or calcium carbonate.4 All surfaces to be bonded should be clean and free of dust.) Abrasion should always be followed by degreasing to remove contaminants and loose particles. This can be accomplished with abrasive media appropriate for the materials being bonded (such as medium grit emery paper.
