Neoprene glues


Neoprene adhesives are also known as double-sided contact adhesives, because of their application. They are composed of polychloroprene and synthetic resins dissolved in organic solvents (alcohols, ketones, ethers, gasoline...). They are generally in the form of a colorless gel, but can also be in the liquid state to facilitate their application over large areas.


To fix two surfaces with a neoprene adhesive, it is necessary to glue the two surfaces of contact. Let the glued surfaces dry for 5 to 15 minutes (depending on the solvent). To make sure you can join both surfaces, do a test with your finger. If the glue does not dot anymore, that is, if the glue did not settle on your finger, then you can glue both surfaces. To ensure effective bonding, gently approach both surfaces and once the contact is made squeeze the parts you want to attach for 5 seconds. The final decision will be made after 3 days.

On which supports:

Wood, metal, glass, porcelain, cork, leather, rigid PVC.

Media that does not stick with:

Polyethylene, Polystyrene, polypropylene and flexible PVC.

Uses for the house:

Glue wood in hard-to-reach areas where screwing or nailing is not obvious. Attach PVC gutters.


Neoprene can stick many materials. They are very resistant and therefore allow lasting collages.


They are sensitive to moisture, so it is not recommended to use them for external collages. Neoprene glues are particularly irritating but also very polluting.

To wash instruments after use:

Use an organic solvent such as white spirit, gasoline or acetone.
