What is a Contact Adhesive?

Ideal for attaching large surfaces together where clamping is difficult, such as laminating wood and plastics, or flexible materials.


An even coat of the adhesive is applied to each surface and then allowed to dry and become tacky before the two surfaces are joined together.

What is Acrylic Cement?

Is a solvent based adhesive, which is a mixture of ingredients (typically polymers) dissolved in a solvent. When applied to the correct material it caused the surface to 'dissolve' and fuse with the other part to be bonded. as the solvent evaporates, the adhesive hardens.


It will only work if both materials can be dissolved.

What is Polystyrene Cement?

Is a solvent based adhesive, which is a mixture of ingredients (typically polymers) dissolved in a solvent. When applied to the correct material it caused the surface to 'dissolve' and fuse with the other part to be bonded. as the solvent evaporates, the adhesive hardens.It will only work if both materials can be dissolved.

What is Epoxy Resin?

Epoxy adhesives are the most widely used structural adhesive, because of their excellent adhesion to most substrates, high strength, and light weight. Uses range from bolt anchoring, concrete repair, wood filling, and electronic encapsulation to manufacturing of sports equipment, aircraft, boats and wind turbine blades.

What is PVA (Polyvinyl Acetate))

Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA) based adhesives are strong, flexible, adhere to many surfaces, clean up with water, and are environmentally friendly. These adhesives have high dry strength, but generally are low in water resistance and heat resistance.



Ideal for joining Woods

What is cyanoacrylate?

Superglue/Instant adhesives are incredibly strong and set the quickest among structural adhesives (usually within 60 sec.). When cured, they form rigid bonds with high tensile and shear strength. They are not recommended for applications requiring solvent and water resistance.

State 3 conditions required to make Adhesives work best?

Under Pressure




Surfaces are clean, dry and free from dust.




When they are given time to cure (reach full strength)
