What You Need to Know About Instant Adhesives

What You Need to Know About Instant Adhesives

With all the various adhesives available in the market, instant adhesives are the most commonly sought after as you can apply to bond them to almost all combinations of substrates. You can use them to bond plastic to metal, cardboard to metal, rubber to wood, and even to elastomer itself. This kind of adhesive is known as cyanoacrylate or CA. They’re a solution that offers fast, high performance, and reliable bonding in mere seconds.

 

Here are the other amazing facts you might don’t know yet about CA.



CA are surface insensitive 

While traditional instant adhesives had poorly reacted to acidic substrates, which slows or inhibits their cure, surface insensitive adhesives were developed to still work both on active and inactive surfaces. They can also react much faster and more efficiently than traditional adhesives even in dry regions, providing a more reliable bond. 


Used in solving crimes 

When adhesives react with moisture and then fall back down on the substrate to be bonded, the phenomenon called frosting occurs. Once this happens, you will see a white powdery residue left behind. This process makes the adhesives very useful in solving crimes by allowing detectives to find fingerprints. 


Storing CA in the fridge

Though it may sound absurd, you can actually store unopened bottles of instant adhesives in the fridge to extend their shelf life. However, once they are opened, never do so but instead, keep them inside a room temperature to avoid contamination and premature curing of the product. 


We here at Invertech Canada Inc. are equipped with the right tools and expertise to give you the best adhesives for your bonding or assembly requirements. The adhesives and other products we offer are known to be fast-acting, efficient, and work with a wide variety of materials. We also provide adhesive accelerators to help the curing go faster. Contact us today to talk to a specialist to find out which adhesive is right for your business needs!
