Repair instructions for bonded seals
General information on handling rubber seal profiles:
If seals reveal partly detached protective film on delivery, they must not be bonded.
Store seals at 15
C to 25
If, during the handling, the protective film has come off before bonding, it can still be bonded.
Bonding at room and object temperature >20
C. Temperatures between 40 and 50
increase initial adhesion.
Seals, which are subjected to temperatures above 80
C after gluing, will be very difficult to remove.
Damage pattern and repair
2.1 Partially detached bond (rubber-adhesive tape or adhesive tape-paint)
Up to 120 mm for retouching without auxiliary resources
Up to 200 mm repaired with pressing-on tools on straight surfaces
Cleaning damaged areas:
Degrease bonded area with adhesive cleaner (refer to BMW
Parts Service) and remove other residues.
Use necessary cotton- or fluff-free paper towel once only.
When using solvent:
expose repair area to air for at least 2 minutes.
With a fine nozzle, apply a wafer-thin bead to adhesive tape.
Use contact adhesive (e.g. Terokal 2444)
Avoid contact to skin!
Do not apply adhesive to visible painted surfaces.
Pressing on rubber seal:
Press down seal using contact pressure (forced pressure not
necessary) for at least 1 minute.
Load can only be applied to the bond after a period of
2 minutes. This waiting time is absolutely essential.
