How to use liquid nails
Do you know that there is such a chemical composition that dries quickly enough, is highly durable and very popular in construction? Yes, these are liquid nails. In general, this is not a single composition, but a whole group of compositions, each of which has its own unique characteristics. Such materials are water resistant, almost not afraid of high temperatures. Regardless of the level of humidity of the air, liquid nails perfectly set to any surfaces, do not rot, are not exposed to fungus and corrosion.
All types of liquid nails can be based on water or organic solvents. There is a large amount of acrylate latex in the water base. Liquid nails on solvents contain synthetic rubber. The water base makes such materials absolutely harmless to us. But these materials, nevertheless, have quite unpleasant odors. As another drawback, it is worth noting their low resistance to low temperatures. Under the action of cold, these compounds quickly become unusable. The setting time of such liquid nails is somewhat less than that of liquid nails on solvents.
Heats up the glueing site faster to grasp these nails. But to use it on metals is not recommended because of the same intolerance to low temperatures.
Liquid nails with organic solvents work well at almost any temperature. Their strength is much higher than that of water-based compositions. Their biggest disadvantage is high toxicity, which is unsafe for humans. The process of working with these compounds is associated with the observance of certain security measures. For example, the premises in which they work with such compounds should be ventilated with high quality. Human hands should be protected by special gloves or gloves.
The special assembly gun simplifies work with all types of liquid nails. The application of the working composition is carried out by the point method. The surface must be degreased, dried and cleaned. The surfaces to be glued must be very tightly pressed together. Moreover, until the adhesive composition is completely dry. Depending on what composition was used, this time is 10-30 minutes.
