Without pre-treatment, many plastics are unable to be bonded or can only be bonded under very specific conditions. Weicon Contact Adhesive Primer for Polyolefins helps alleviate this problem by changing the surface structure of these plastics. This, as a result, allows them to be bonded with Weicon Contact Adhesives.
Specifically designed to enable the use of Weicon Cyanoacrylate Contact Adhesives with polyolefins such as polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), Weicon Contact Adhesive Primer also works well with thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) Teflon® (PTFE) and related plastics as well as silicone.
When working with these kinds of materials, the use of Weicon Contact Adhesive Primer for Polyolefins offers many advantages. These include:
- Larger choice of usable plastics
- Higher bonding strength with plastics that are usually difficult to bond
- Cost savings as other mechanical methods of pre-treatment (scalloping, low pressure plasma, heat treatment, etc…) are not necessary.
Weicon Contact Adhesive Primer for Polyolefins begins to be effective just 2 minutes after application and lasts up to 24 hours.
Weicon Contact Adhesive Primer for Polyolefins is available from AG in 10ml and 100ml bottles along with the full range of Weicon Contact Adhesives.
