Jobs involving glue can prove to be a wasted effort! But they don't have to! To make sure your next project or repair with UHU adhesive is a fast and lasting success, UHU has prepared a few tips.
THE SURFACES MUST BE FREE FROM DUST, OIL AND DIRT
For an optimal glueing result, the surfaces must first be thoroughly cleaned. Otherwise the hold of the adhesive will be compromised considerably.
Common source of errors
- Applying loads to the materials too quickly can result in the glued surfaces no longer adhering to one another. You must therefore allow sufficient drying time.
- More is better! In this case, this is often untrue! People often use too much glue. This extends the drying time and compromises adhesion.
- In the case of adhesives that cure by means of solvent or water, it is often not taken into account that one of the two materials must be permeable. The adhesive must therefore be selected on the basis of the material.
