UV Cure Adhesive – A fantastic option for gluing glass, UV Cure Adhesive is a single part cure a demand adhesive, that works through exposure to UV Light. Known for its excellent adhesion to glass, it does not dissolve, melt or damage either component, and provides a superb durable chemical bond between the two substrates after application.
Cyanoacrylate Adhesives – Another excellent option for gluing glass applications. Cyanoacrylate Adhesives work exceptionally well in even the hardest conditions, and work best with substrates that are non porous. Cyanoacrylate cures exceptionally quickly as it works by reacting to hydroxol ions in water. Most substrates such as glass will have traces of water on its surfaces, and this enables Cyanoacryalte provide fantastic adhesion at speed.
MS Polymer – One of latest innovations now on the market. MS Polymer is a fantastic industrial sealant, that provides excellent adhesion on difficult to bond applications, such as glass. Exceptionally easy to use, it has fantastic weather resistant properties & excellent non staining qualities. It is also suitable for large substrates that are damp or wet, and will also not react to the coating on mirrors. MS Polymer also provides a fantastic crystal clear finish in glass to glass bonding applications.
Silicone Sealant – Another option if you are looking for a glass glue. Silicone Sealants provides excellent adhesion to glass. Silicone Sealants are a special type of molded sealer, that work through the presence of oxygen, to form a long strand after the sealant cures. Silicone is also not subject to atmostpheric conditions & displays excellent movement & adhesion properties, & is known for its ability on glass applications.
Polyurethane Sealants – Fantastic for gluing glass, they display fantastic resistance to UV light & chemicals, and are exceptionally easy to apply.
