We have two bestselling adhesives:
Water based adhesives are dependent upon the evaporation or absorption of water from the solution to create a strong bond. Typically they are composed of vegetable or other natural sources, though some different synthetics may be used as well. They can come in the form of premixed or “add water” solutions and their strength depends on a wide range of different factors. Industries using water- based adhesive solutions tend to have better luck with plastics or metals.
Set time is short; it can be applied in a multitude of different ways and is great for large surface areas. Water-based adhesives include glues, powders, sprays, pastes, and more!
Hot melt adhesives, typically thought of as a “glue gun” adhesive, use a solid stick combined with a heating gun in order melt the adhesive down to a workable form. The soften adhesive then dries quickly once the heat source is removed, so work must be done with a significant amount of haste in mind. Benefits to hot melt adhesives include the fact that the drying process is drastically reduced, bonds tend to last longer, and connections are easy to breakdown/dispose of.
Downsides can include weakened strength under high temperatures, difficulty covering a large surface area, and application to materials that are sensitive to extreme heat. Also hot glue guns can be extremely dangerous, and should be handled with extreme caution.
Glue Dots are a revolutionary new product that is impacting everything from entire industrial processes, to small DIY home decorating projects. Glue Dots are individual, tiny, adhesive units that are attached to a long thin strip. They are activated by pressure, and come in a variety of different available strengths depending on what you are attempting to do. They can be attached individually, in a line directly off of the strip, or can be applied using special applicators.
