Liquid Nails.....what's that?

What are liquid nails and where they are used

A few years ago, the only way to connect the two materials was mechanical connections — nails, screws, screws. However, it was not always convenient to do this, sometimes these compounds did not withstand the tests for strength, sometimes for a while. After all, iron tends to rust, which is why a compound can stop performing its main function.

Varieties of "liquid nails"

The main components of “liquid nails” are polymers and rubber. However, there are two main types of them. Some of them are made on a water basis (the so-called water-emulsion nails). They are usually used to connect porous materials, and they do not guarantee a secure fit in rooms with high humidity. Neoprene “liquid nails” are suitable for a larger number of works, in their composition the main part is occupied by an organic solvent. They have an unpleasant smellmay be hazardous to health (so safety precautions should be carefully observed), however, they guarantee a reliable connection of virtually any material.

The use of "liquid nails"

The most important quality of "liquid nails" - versatility, they can connect both homogeneous and dissimilar materials. Another important factor is their bonding ability is simply phenomenal. They guarantee a reliable connection even with a load of 80 kg / cm².
They are able to combine such materials as brick, wood, glass, polystyrene, metal, chipboard ceramics and fiberboard. At the same time, even if the materials loosely abut each other, “liquid nails” are capable of creating a reliable connection. However, you should not use them when creating aquariums or joining wet or damp wood.
Although the “liquid nails” set in about half an hour, it takes at least 18 hours to fully cure. Therefore, at this time it is necessary to limit the physical load on the place of adhesive bonding. You should also know that completely cover one of the surfaces is not worth it, just a few adhesive strips or points.

The disadvantages of "liquid nails"

One of the minor drawbacks of using “liquid nails” is their limitation in temperature conditions (from -40 to + 50 ° C). Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to apply them in the cold, and even if you warm frozen “liquid nails”, they will lose their effectiveness several times. At high temperatures, they begin to lose their shape, moving into a viscous state. It is not recommended to use "liquid nails" to join materials that will subsequently be exposed to direct sunlight.
