4 Differences Between Industrial and Regular Adhesives

4 Differences Between Industrial and Regular Adhesives

 

When working on recreational projects, some decorative craft makers will want to use industrial-grade instant adhesives rather than their typical adhesives. However, using industrial adhesives doesn't mean they will yield your desired results.

 

They're widely useful, but might not be compatible with the materials in an art project. Here are four significant differences between the two:

 

Industrial-Grade Adhesives Are Stronger

Metal fasteners, screws, and other attachments can withstand immense pressure and weight. Therefore, their industrial instant adhesives must handle the same level of strength and capability too. Regular adhesives will provide only minor support and can fall apart once the applied pressure sets in, even if the adhesive has cured.

Crafts-Oriented Adhesives Introduce Adequate Strength

Most hobbies or art projects do not require strong instant adhesives. For example, cyanoacrylate adhesives can burn or even damage certain materials, such as paper and wood. However, it works exceptionally well with dense plastic and metal surfaces. Furthermore, using strong adhesives can be quite expensive for simple art-oriented uses.

Industrial Adhesives Can Transform Certain Materials

In addition to possible burning and damage, strong adhesives can introduce exceptional binding strength that can weaken materials. This event solidifies the adhesive and renders the weaker material obsolete. Therefore, only use adhesives intended for use with your workpieces. 

Decorative and Packaging Adhesives Require No Accelerators

Lastly, decorative and packaging adhesives dry instantly. Some industrial adhesives require accelerators to speed up their curing process. Packaging adhesives often come in a rolled-up tape form, which is especially convenient for numerous sealing and locking applications.
