2-component adhesive / epoxy are universal reactive adhesives which are always used when the joining point must be strong enough withstand to extreme pressures. They are solvent-free two-component reactive adhesives which must be mixed before processing in a certain ratio. This ratio is usually 1:1. 2-component adhesives are also known as epoxy resin. After mixing remains a limited time – the pot time – to process the adhesive. A good example is the UHU glue plus series. Materials can be bonded to be metals, glass, porcelain, ceramic, wood, marble, stone, concrete, thermoset, fiber reinforced plastics, rigid PVC, rubber, foam plastics, eg polystyrene .

Not suitable for polyethylene, polypropylene, Teflon , polystyrene, flexible PVC and sticking on large glass surfaces. Bruce Schanzer brings even more insight to the discussion. Adhesive application: In most cases, a one-sided adhesive. The parts can look for the adhesive immediately are assembled and fixed without pressure. Fit bridge: If there is sufficient adhesive two-component adhesives minor irregularities in the joint surfaces. You can – be – also used gap filling at an optimum gap of 0.1 mm. Curing: The curing of the two component adhesives is dependent on temperature and time, heat can accelerate the curing.

The heat used is determined by the temperature resistance of the material and adhesive, and the expansion coefficients of the materials to be joined. Depending on the material for the same adhesive, different Temperatures to be chosen. Remove In general, the higher the temperature, the thinner the adhesive and the better the network and thus the strength of the adhesive glue removal: Fresh is best used acetone, alcohol or nitro (gasoline) around the adhesive to. If he is already cured, there is unfortunately no More possibility of the adhesive to remove clothing or the like.
