Drop glue is a type of liquid glue that comes out of a container in the form of small drops and quickly adheres to the desired surface and is placed in place.
These types of adhesives are usually used for gluing small and sensitive surfaces, such as sheets of paper, plastic and leather labels, for gluing electronic components or for precise work in various industries.
Drop glue has characteristics such as quick drying, transparency, high flexibility and no side effects such as stains on surfaces.
In this article, the different types of drop glue, the properties and benefits of each type, their different uses and guidelines for their use will be discussed.
Types of drop glue
1. Silicone glue
Silicone glue or silicone wire is one of the most popular types of drop glue. This glue is very sticky and flexible and is very suitable for gluing different materials such as metals, plastics, wood and glass. Silicone glue is resistant to water and heat and is suitable for use outside the building and against sunlight.
2. Epoxy glue
Epoxy glue or epoxy resin is another one of the most popular types of drop glue. This is a two-part adhesive that includes resin and hardener.
Epoxy glue is very strong and suitable for bonding hard materials such as metals, ceramics and hardwoods. Also, this glue is used to repair car parts and electronic devices.
3. Polyurethane glue
Polyurethane glue or polyurethane is another type of drop glue that is very suitable for gluing different materials such as wood, plastic, metals and glass. This glue is flexible and resistant to water and heat and is suitable for use outside the building and against different weather conditions.
4. Superglue glue
Superglue or Cyper glue is one of the most powerful types of drop glue. This glue dries very quickly and is very suitable for gluing hard and light materials such as plastic, metal and paper. However, this adhesive is usually not flexible and is not suitable for use against different weather conditions.
5. PVC glue
PVC or polyvinyl ester glue is another type of drop glue that is suitable for gluing different materials such as plastic, wood, paper and metals. This glue is flexible and resistant to water and heat and is suitable for use outside the building and against different weather conditions.
6. Polyester glue
Polyester or fiberglass glue is another type of drop glue that is suitable for gluing hard and light materials such as metals, hardwoods and hard plastics. This glue is used for industrial repairs and construction and is resistant to heat and weather conditions.
Advantages of using drop glue
1. Ease of use: Using drop glue is very easy and does not require special skills.
2. Drying speed: many types of drop glue dry very quickly and can be used quickly.
3. Adhesion strength: Drop glue is very powerful for gluing different materials and can stick parts together.
4. Resistance to water and heat: Many types of drop glue are resistant to water and heat and can be used against different weather conditions.
Can super glue be used on all surfaces?
While super glue is a versatile adhesive that can bond a wide variety of materials, it may not work on all surfaces. Some surfaces may be too smooth or too greasy to allow the adhesive to adhere effectively. In addition, certain plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene are difficult to bond with super glue.
Before using super glue on a new surface, it’s always a good idea to test a small, inconspicuous area first to make sure it adheres properly. This will help you avoid any possible damage or disappointment if the glue doesn’t work as expected.
If you are unsure whether super glue is the right glue for your project, consult the manufacturer’s instructions or seek professional advice. In some cases, another type of adhesive may be more suitable for the material you are working with.
What surfaces is drop glue suitable for?
Drop glue is suitable for gluing different types of surfaces. Below are some of the surfaces that drop glue is suitable for sticking:
1. Metals: Drop glue is suitable for bonding metals, including light metals such as aluminum and steel and hard metals such as iron and brass.
2. Plastics: drop glue is suitable for gluing different types of plastics, including polyethylene, polyester, polycarbonate and polyamide.
3. Wood: Drop glue is suitable for gluing wood, including soft woods such as chipboard and hardwoods such as poplar and spruce.
4. Glass: Drop glue is suitable for gluing glass, including thick and thin glass such as windows and mirrors.
5. Ceramics: Drop glue is suitable for bonding ceramics, including decorative ceramics and interior ceramics.
6. Tires: Drop glue is suitable for gluing tires, including car tires and other tires.
7. Paper: Drop glue is suitable for gluing papers, including decorative papers and other papers.
8. Refractories: drop glue is suitable for gluing different types of refractories, including fiberglass and composite.
9. Pipes: Drop glue is suitable for gluing pipes and pipe fittings, including polyethylene pipes and PVC pipes.
In general, drop glue is suitable for gluing different types of surfaces, but a specific type of drop glue is suitable for each type of surface, so before using drop glue, you should check the type of surface and choose the right type of drop glue.
Note that in some cases, drop glue may not be suitable for some surfaces, for example, drop glue is not suitable for gluing wet or greasy surfaces. Also, for some surfaces such as aluminum and steel metals, drop glue with metal components such as acrylic or silicone is suitable. If you are not sure about the choice of drop glue for a specific surface, it is better to use the guide of the drop glue manufacturer.
