Weicon Contact Adhesive VA 1403 is a one-part, cold curing adhesive used on a wide variety of materials and surfaces. This universal grade has a high viscosity (1100-1180 mPa·s) and a slow cure time which allows for high precision application to even complex areas. VA 1403 exhibits good tolerance of changes in humidity after curing which allows it to offer highly reliable, long lasting performance.
Used in a wide range of applications, Weicon Contact Adhesive VA 1403 emits low odour quantities whilst curing which allows it to be used in assembly line environments.
Clear in colour, this Alcoxy Ethyl based grade is also low blooming which results in clean and optically appealing joints which continue to exhibit good flexibility even after the adhesive is fully cured. It is used in applications where temperatures range from -50ºC and 80ºC (with short-term spikes up to 100ºC).
Like all Weicon Contact Adhesives, VA 1403 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 for Polyolefines. Failure to do so will mean 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 1403 is available from AG in 30gm, 60gm and 500gm packs. The 30gm and 60gm varieties both make use of Weicon’s proprietary pen system that allows for incredibly accurate, easy application, clean processing and improved dosing.
