Proper Application of Adhesive Accelerator

Proper Application of Adhesive Accelerator

As its name implies, an adhesive accelerator is intended to make instant adhesives cure faster while leaving a strong and neat joint.

 

It has been proven to be highly effective in curing bonds and its application is relatively easy.

 

It is a chemical made to speed up the action of hardener in the two-part adhesives, which are durable, temperature resistant, and offer excellent bond strength. Nevertheless, they tend to cure slowly at surface level, which is the reason why they were made to aid in faster and uniform curing. 


Prior to the application of an adhesive accelerator, it is advisable to test it first on a small portion of the parts to be bonded. Testing is very important because some accelerators will not be compatible with certain surfaces and will cause them to react upon application. When testing is done, you will know when the chemical is compatible to use with the materials to bond. If this is the case, you have to clean the surfaces to be bonded first and leave it to dry before applying the adhesive.


The accelerator can be utilized in two different ways. You can apply it after bonding which is often done when you have to make some adjustments before the bond is finally formed. The second way it can be used is prior to creating the bond which promotes the slow-curing adhesives to be much faster. Just make sure to use just enough adhesive to prevent messy work. 


In addition to bonding metal substrates together, the adhesive accelerator is also applicable for porous materials like wood and can help avoid damages on sensitive contacts. It can also improve curing time when bonding acidic materials or in cases when low humidity is an issue. The chemical will even help the adhesive to fill gaps up to 0.20 inches. Adhesive accelerators can be very helpful with plenty of uses for industrial applications. You can get the best version of this product from Invertech Canada. Our solutions also offer excellent instant adhesive curing capabilities for any of your time-sensitive projects.
