Composed of polychloroprene and synthetic resins diluted in solvents, the neoprene glue offers excellent mechanical strength, which can avoid the use of screws or nails. However, it has a major disadvantage: it does not allow any repositioning.
- Also called "contact glue", it requires a delicate implementation. It must be spread on the two parts to be fixed (double sizing) and let the solvents evaporate about ten minutes before assembly (we talk about scrubbing time).
- It is suitable for gluing wood, metal, glass, PVC (rigid only)...
- No right to the mistake: the collage is immediate and definitive. Its resistance then depends on the pressure exerted on the two parts.
- Disadvantage ? This product contains solvents and has a strong odor. It is not suitable for backs of mirrors (except for exceptions) or soft plastics (polystyrene, polyethylene and polypropylene).
After thoroughly cleaning the media to be glued, apply a thin layer of regular glue.
Smooth immediately with a spatula. Let stand to allow the solvents to evaporate.
When the glue does not touch the touch, the scrubbing time is over (about 10 minutes).
Put the two parts in contact: the bonding is instantaneous and definitive (no repositioning possible).
