Question for Mr. Hofi ?

Recommended Posts

Hello Mike
Sikaflex 11 fc pu base glue.
I use the Sikaflex to glue the handles to the hammer head also.
U can go on '' Sikaflex usa " and you will find many other polyurathane base glues. And I think to day they have a stronger one that I can not get in Israel. May be in the USA look for Hra50

If you want in the future to be able to take the anvil apart from the base, smear the anvil with a very thin layer of any oil. From the point of view of the noise it will work the same.

Hope it is clear . Thank you for asking

According to the manufacture of the product (Sika), the shelf life is 9 months, because of the fast cure properties of the product.

A quick search found 10 sales/distributor locations in Virginia and 6 in North Carolina, 16 in Texas, and 45 in California. They have over 200 distributors in the USA. Contacting one distributor at random they said they order it as needed and directly from the company (Sika) with a 3 week delivery time. This would leave over 8 months of shelf life when received. This distributor would sell to anyone, no open account needed.
