I've found that the pack contains 4g of hardener and 26g of adhesive, so I'd suspect that's the ration to mix it.  https://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk/uhu-plus-acrylit

I have also just bought some of this glue and am unclear about the mix ratio.  The pack provides two little measuring spoons marked "1/2" and "1" but there is no indication of the amount of goo out of the tube to use, and no way provided to measure that.  Help!  Stan, is it possible to see the data sheets?  I'll PM you as well in case you don't get here very often.

Instructions:
  https://www.phillsmodels.com/product.php/uhu_plus_acrylit_30g/?k=:::5226814
The surfaces to be stuck must be dry and free of dust and grease. Roughen smooth surfaces.

Fill the mixing tub with strands of binder to between two of the marker lines. For every square covered by binder add one small measure (one large measure for every two squares) of hardening powder and mix thoroughly using the spatula. Apply a thin layer to both of the surfaces to be stuck together and hold in place for approx. 15 minutes.
There is no need to apply much pressure.
