To use all types of aquarium adhesives, it is necessary to observe some important points so that the adhesive adheres well to the desired surface and does not separate from it. These points include:
The first point
The desired surface (be it the sink, ceramic seam, window seam, etc.) must be cleaned of any kind of dust, traces of grease or traces of old glue. For this, we can use a mild alcohol detergent.
The second point
Avoid pouring a large amount of glue on the seams and cracks. To do this, we must first fill the seams with a small amount of glue. Then, if the seams were not completely filled, fill it again with a second layer of glue. In the last step, we use a spatula to smooth and even the glue surface.
The third point
It takes at least 6 to 8 hours and maximum 24 hours for the glue to dry completely. The adhesives produced by each company have a specific drying time, which is usually included on the back of the product packaging.
The fourth point
Do not expose to moisture or heat until the adhesive is completely dry. Because it does not dry, it loses its quality, it cracks and the sealing is not done properly.
The fifth point
Good material and quality adhesives have high surface adhesion and elasticity. That is, it is not the case that with a slight pressure on the glue tube, a large volume will come out of it. If you get a glue that is low in concentration, it is likely to lose its quality over time.
The sixth point
The aquarium adhesive made of 100% silicone will have a uniform surface without cracks or seams after drying.
A good aquarium adhesive should be anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. This type of glue is mostly used in bathrooms and wet places.
