Dissolving the resin:
  1. Take all water*** in the mixer****
  2. Add required amount of spreacol 400 and mix until a homogenous solution is obtained.
  3. Other additives and hardener are added.

*Flour is added in case of gluing veneer to plywood

**The hardener quantity depends on pressing conditions like temperature, timing, pressure and thickness.

**Water temperature should be 20 – 30 0C because with lower temperature mixing is more time consuming.

****A mechanical stirrer may be used for this purpose,With high speed mixer all the water may be placed first and then resin may be added, while mixer is running,With low speed mixer, it is better to make a homogenous mix of the resin with about 2/ 3 of water, and rest of the water may be added later.
