Ensure the hole is clean, dry, and free from dust, oil and grease.

1

Remove product through the perforated backing card (always store unused product in the original packaging).

2

Cut a length of strip sufficient for the hole to be filled.

3

Remove the protective film from both sides of the cut strip.

4

Wearing suitable gloves, knead the strip until a uniform colour is obtained. Slight wetting with water improves workability.

5

Push product into hole until it is fully filled. A flat blade tool can be used for this. Remains workable for up to 4 minutes.

6

Remove excess material and ensure flush with the hole.

7

Centrally insert screw 1/2 way using light finger pressure to create a pilot hole. Leave screws in place to set for 1 hour.

8

Using a screwdriver carefully remove screw, position the fixture (e.g. bracket or shelf) and then fully tighten screw until flush with fixture (do not overtighten). Always follow manufacturers instructions for the fixture.

9

Do not use product for hanging objects over 20kg.
