  • Selleys Araldite 5 Minute
  • Clean rag
  • Acetone or nail polish remover

Easy as..


  1. Make sure both surfaces are clean, dry and dust-free. All traces of grease, rust, paint, etc. should be removed.
  2. Carefully cut the sealed tips off the end of both syringe nozzles.
  3. Dispense both parts (resin and hardener) equally onto a clean, disposable surface such as cardboard and mix them together with a nail or stick. You have 2 to 3 minutes to use the mixed glue.
  4. Apply the glue mix to both surfaces and press together.
  5. You don’t need to clamp, but don’t strain the bond for at least 30 minutes. It will gain maximum strength in 16 hours.
  6. Scrape off excess adhesive and wipe mixing utensils with a tissue dipped in acetone or nail polish remover and replace the cap from plunger on nozzle.
