RhinoBond Toughened Grade Instant Adhesive
Make your own screen the easy way with RhinoBond RBT Instant Adhesive. For best results, make sure that the aluminum frame surface is clean and “roughened” to give the adhesive the best possible bond. You can either use heavy grit sandpaper, wire wheel or a grit blaster. Make sure to wipe the surface with acetone or isopropyl alcohol prior to bonding. Aluminum will oxidize so stretch the frame immediately after cleaning. Wood frames should also be cleaned and any old cured adhesive sanded off. Make sure the surface is dry and dust free before bonding.
Stretch mesh across the frame and put weights in the center prior to applying the adhesive. This will ensure good contact between the frame and the mesh. Use a plastic spreader to evenly distribute the adhesive over the mesh. Next, lightly spray the adhesive from a distance of 12″ with RBP1500A Activator. RhinoBond will cure within 5-10 seconds. Simply trim the excess mesh and your frame is ready.

- Requires no premixing of solvents
- Its high strength and quick set time make RhinoBond Glue the “go-to” for all screen makers
- Offered in a variety of thicknesses for different mesh counts
- Tension holding capabilities up to 50 newtons

Suggested Viscosity for mesh:
- 85-160 = 700 cps
- 110-200 = 300 cps
- 160-305 = 100 cps
- 260+ = 5 or 50 cps
The lower the centipoise (cP) is, the thinner the adhesive is.
For example, RBT 505 is very thin (5 cPs) and RBT 700 is much thicker (700 Cps)
