Weicon Contact Adhesive VA 1408 is a one-part, cold curing adhesive used in a wide variety of applications. This universal type has a low viscosity (20-40 mPa·s) and is fast curing for quick and easy application. VA 1408 exhibits low sensitivity to humidity post-curing which allows it to offer reliable, long lasting performance.
Used with a wide range of materials and surfaces, Weicon Contact Adhesive VA 1408 emits only low odours when curing which makes it ideal for assembly line work.
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 1408 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 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 1408 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.
