ON (see TM 10-5410-228-10).
Personnel Required: (2)
One person inside ABS.

Toluene is flammable and toxic to eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. Skin/eye protection
required. Avoid repeated/prolonged contact. Good general ventilation is normally adequate.
Keep away from open flames or other sources or ignition.
Clean outer edges on inside of the old window with a rag dampened with toluene. Allow toluene
ample time to dry so that the surface is not wet when the new window is installed.
Under cold or damp weather conditions and to avoid condensation, it may be necessary to dry
the window area as well as the new window.
Adhesive and adhesive hardener are flammable and give off harmful vapors. Use adhesive
and adhesive hardener sparingly and only in well ventilated area. Avoid prolonged breathing
of vapors. Keep away from heat, sparks, open flames. Wear gloves when handling adhesive
and adhesive hardener. May cause eye and skin irritation.
Mix adhesive and adhesive hardener using 8 parts adhesive to 1 part hardener by volume.
Apply three coats to each surface, allow 20 to 30 minutes between coats.
Mate surfaces carefully with good pressure within 20 minutes of last coat.
