3 Adhesive Accelerating Chemicals That Can Speed Up Your Productivity

3 Adhesive Accelerating Chemicals That Can Speed Up Your Productivity

Adhesive accelerators, primers, and activators in manufacturing and metal fabricating help with the bonding process of various components in a product. The bonding process is often characterized by using one material that is difficult to bond to another material. Here are three adhesive accelerating chemicals that can speed up your business’ productivity.

Crucial Adhesive Accelerating Chemicals That Boost Output

Primers

Primers can be used to prep surfaces for painting, staining, or other treatment. They create a smoother texture, making it easier to apply the desired finish.

Many plastics require the use of a primer that is specific to the type of plastic. For example, primers for thermoplastic polyolefin are designed to boost adhesion to the surface. Primers can be used on many different types of plastics, but it is essential to know which primer is best suited for your application. Therefore, you should carefully select a primer according to your specific needs.

Accelerators

Adhesive accelerators are chemicals that are typically added to adhesive materials to expedite the cure time. When accelerating the curing process with glue accelerators, there is a tradeoff in the bond strength. The bond strength might increase or decrease in some instances and situations.

Bonding a porous material to a cyanoacrylate can be challenging because the adhesive may cure before the substrate fully absorbs it. Adhesive accelerators applied to the substrate can create an ideal environment for adhesion.

Activators or Initiators

Adhesive initiators are chemical catalysts that help cure the adhesive. Adhesive activators are designed to activate the glue within a few hours of mixing. They are used with two-component adhesives to initiate the curing process. Activators work well only for their specific type of adhesive, so use care while selecting it.
