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.

Neoprene glue, excellent performance on many media

  • 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).

Neoprene glue, delicate to use but very powerful: very

Apply a thin layer of neoprene glue

After thoroughly cleaning the media to be glued, apply a thin layer of regular glue.

Smooth neoprene glue with a spatula

Smooth immediately with a spatula. Let stand to allow the solvents to evaporate.

The glue must not stick anymore

When the glue does not touch the touch, the scrubbing time is over (about 10 minutes).

Assemble parts accurately

Put the two parts in contact: the bonding is instantaneous and definitive (no repositioning possible).
