What is special about contact adhesives

The contact makes the difference

Contact adhesives belong to the group of physically setting adhesives. These are adhesives that cure without a complex chemical reaction. The adhesive is activated and cures solely by the evaporation of the solvent. In the case of chemically setting adhesives, on the other hand, the adhesive is formed by the chemical reaction of polyaddition, polycondensation or polymerization. Contact adhesives are available as 1-component adhesives, as 2-component systems, and also for spraying, such as our WEICON Spray Adhesive.

Contact adhesives are needed where high initial adhesion is required and the bond needs to be permanently elastic and moisture-resistant. Spray adhesives are used, for example, in textile printing processes or in the DIY sector.

How to use contact adhesives?

How are spray adhesives used?


1. Thoroughly clean the bonding surface (e.g. with WEICON Surface Cleaner) – oil, grease, dust, and other contaminants must be removed.

2. Shake can thoroughly.

3. Spray the adhesive onto the areas to be bonded at a distance of 15-20 cm.

4. Allow adhesive to flash off.

5. Join the workpieces together.

6. Done

How is GMK 2410 used?


1. Clean the bonding surface (e.g. with WEICON Surface Cleaner) – oil, grease, dust, and other contaminants must be removed.

2. Apply adhesive evenly, generously and over the entire surface of both parts to be joined.

3. Allow coated surfaces to flash off for ten minutes.

4. Check whether the surface has been sufficiently dehumidified: Does the surface have a silky matt sheen? Or tap the surface with a finger. Does it feel like a sticky note from the office? Top, it can go on.

5. Press surfaces together with short but strong pressure over the entire surface.

6. Done
