An adhesive, also known colloquially as "adhesive", is characterized by the fact that it reliably connects the same and different materials. The decisive factors here are the adhesive (adhesive force between the joining material and the adhesive) and cohesive forces (bonding forces within the adhesive), which should be balanced for optimal bonding. The great advantage of these connections is that the adhesive does not affect the properties of the joining materials. In the case of adhesives, a basic distinction is made between chemically curing and physically setting.
Chemofast adhesives are among the chemically hardening adhesives and, with the exception of the 2K Epoxy Power Glue, require moisture to harden. The 2 K Epoxy Power Glue, as the name already implies, has two components that are mixed with a mixer when pressed out. The two components react with each other in the polyaddition and harden in the process. In addition to the purely mechanical function, the adhesive bond can also assume physical functions such as sealing gaps or electrically insulating materials. Due to the versatility of the areas of application and the simple handling, gluing is a very popular process in industry and in the home.
As a result of this versatility, there is not “ONE adhesive” for all applications.
Chemofast's adhesives based on SM polymers (Crystal, High Tack, Multi and Quick and Easy) are best suited for applications involving permanently elastic connections. For high-strength and stiff connections, on the other hand, the 2-component adhesive 2K Epoxy Power Glue or Power Glue should be used. Other advantages of these products are the comparatively short curing time and the zero gap compared to MS polymers.
However, which adhesive is most suitable for your application depends on many factors. Therefore, it is always worth taking a look at our technical data sheets to find the best product for your project, but of course our experts are at your side if you have any questions.
