X120 Adhesive

The X120 adhesive is intended for installing optical fibers, primarily OptiMet PKF. It is easy and fast to use.

To apply the adhesive attach the mixing nozzle onto the 1-X120 two-component cartridge and insert it into the applicator. Two mixing nozzles are supplied with the adhesive. The applied adhesive's curing time depends on the ambient temperature.

Storage life

We recommend storing the X120 cartridge at a temperature between +15°C and +25°C. Higher temperatures reduce the shelf life. The maximum storage life is 12 months. The application area is between -55°C and +120°C.

Scope of supply

  • Cartridge with 50 ml X120 adhesive
  • 2 pieces of mixing nozzles
  • Instructions for use


Before use, please assemble the applicator which is supplied in two parts, insert the cartridge containing the adhesive and attach the mixing nozzle.

Insert the plunger which pushes the adhesive out of the mixing nozzle into the retainer. For this purpose, push the locking lever upward at the end as shown above.

Must be ordered separately. Order code: 1-Applicator

Mixing nozzle

The mixing nozzle must be replaced with a new one depending on the adhesive's pot life (approx. 2 - 4 hours).

We recommend that you do not use the first 10 cm of X120 mixture dispensed from the nozzle; only then will the mixture be optimal.

2 pieces of mixing nozzle are included in the scope of supply of X120. Further pieces can be ordered separately. Order code: 1-Mixing-Nozzle; 12 pieces of mixing nozzles per pack.
