Mixing Instructions

  1. Premix P.C. 270 LV in the original container prior to use to insure any settled filler may be reincorporated. Warming PC 270 LV to 100°F facilitates ease of use.
  2. Weigh out the required amount of P.C.270 Part A and the requisite Part B.
  3. Mix thoroughly, scraping both sides and bottom of container.
  4. Evacuate mixture at 29 in. Hg for 5-10 minutes (if desired).
  5. Pour into mold or cavity.
