Magnabond 3 (Ammunition Magnesite)

Dex-O-Tex Magnabond is a trowel-applied bonding agent for application on aluminum decks. It is a combination of neoprene latex and inorganic powders that are blended at time of using to form a mortar-like consistency that is applied directly to clean, firm metal surfaces. Magnabond has acceptance for use by the US Coast Guard and Canadian Coast Guard as an optional method of installation of oxychloride cement in lieu of the mechanical anchorage method requiring metal clips.

Typical Uses:

-As a bonder for Magnesite to any firm surface
-As a bonder for concrete
-As a tiebond film to improve adhesion of other products to metal surfaces


-Eliminates welding of metal clips, metal lath and bituminous coating

-Both Magnabond 3 and Magnesite are applied by the same trade
