Weicon Contact Adhesive VA 1401 is a one-part, cold curing adhesive with a medium viscosity (100-150 mPa·s) and a fast cure time. This clear, universal adhesive is particularly well suited to bonding fabric, paper, cardboard, foam rubber and solid elastomers in addition to a wide range of metals, plastics and rubbers.
Part of the Ethyl Ester group of Weicon Contact Adhesives, Weicon VA 1401 Adhesive is used in applications where temperatures fall between -50ºC and 80ºC (with spikes up to 100ºC). Like all Weicon Contact Adhesives, VA 1401 polymerises by reacting with moisture on both the bonding surface and from the air before curing under light pressure.
If used for bonding plastics with particularly adhesive averse surfaces (e.g. polyolefines, PTFE) the surface should be pre-treated with Weicon Contact Adhesive Primer. Failure to do so will means that the Contact Adhesive cannot anchor itself to the plastic and a strong bond will be unable to form. It is suggested that users familiarise themselves with the TDS for this product before use.
Weicon Contact Adhesive VA 1401 is available from AG 12gm, 30gm, 60gm and 500gm packs. The 12gm, 30gm and 60gm varieties all make use of Weicon’s proprietary pen system that allows for incredibly accurate, easy application, clean processing and improved dosing.
