HOT SU­PER GLUE TIPS

Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Buyer's Guide - CLEM EC­CLES

When glu­ing to­gether flex­i­ble ma­te­ri­als like fab­rics, leather, flex­i­ble plas­tics or even wood, the most com­mon glue used is con­tact ad­he­sive. This works okay for most ap­pli­ca­tions, but does not give a very strong bond. To get a re­ally strong bond, do the fol­low­ing: Ap­ply the con­tact ad­he­sive to both sides. Al­low it to be­come tacky. Now spread some su­per glue over one side on the ad­he­sive and press to­gether, and hold for about sixty sec­onds. Now, you have a very strong bond.
