Construction adhesives have helped to supplant traditional adhesives that include contact cements, wood glues, and traditional physical fixings, namely screws and nails. Construction adhesives find application in construction, renovation, and in adding finishing touches to homes. They steal a march over traditional adhesives with their ability to dry up within 24 hours, waterproof nature, and flexibility even after drying. On account of their unique perceived benefits, they witness a wide use in the construction industry.
Based on product, construction adhesives can be divided into solvent borne, water borne, reactive, and others. They are usually available in squeeze tubes, cans, and caulking tubes. There are two ways in which construction adhesives are applied – in beads or in full coverage. In beads, for example, lines of adhesive are put on the surface with a caulking gun. This is a very cost-effective method and is typically employed in attaching large, flat materials to large, flat surfaces such as attaching drywall to studs, wood paneling to any smooth wall, etc.
