Stormsure Flexible Repair Adhesive is a polyurethane based adhesive and can be used in situations that demand extremely high durability, strength and flexibility. The degree of elasticity offered allows for use for both static as well as for more flexible bonding and sealing purposes. These adhesive types are formulated from polymers and solvents.
In the case of Stormsure adhesive – the liquid glue will start to cure when it is exposed to even the smallest amount of water vapour in the air. This initiates a chemical chain reaction which will continue until all the glue has cured. The glue should be used at room temperature (15°C- 25°C for best results). Do not use below 5°C. If the glue is too cold the it may appear white and waxy. - Just warm it up until it is a transparent liquid again and it will work fine.
This adhesive is a single component moisture curing product. It has 70% solids content and will only shrink slightly as it cures but this helps to create a very strong and tight bond on most surfaces. It can be used to fill gaps and holes.
Stormsure adhesive is incredibly versatile, making it a good choice for those needing an all-purpose adhesive that is flexible and durable. Stormsure can be used to bond leather, tile, rubber, PVC, wood, concrete, stone, metals, laminate, most plastics glass and PU on themselves or in combination. It can also be used to glue models, joinery, door sills, stairs, skirting boards, window sills.
It also offers complete water resistance and allows sanding and painting when it has dried completely. Polyurethane glue can also fill and even out inconsistencies in the surface you use it on. Characteristics like these, and numerous others, make this type of adhesive an essential tool that is well suited for a wide range of bonding applications.
Surfaces to be bonded must be clean and free of dirt (dust, mud, grease, etc.). You can use an alcohol wipe to clean the surfaces, if not, then just soap and water will do. Be sure the surfaces are dry before application. Apply the glue to one of the surfaces to be bonded. To ensure the best result, at least one of the surfaces must be porous or permeable. Thus, it is recommended to sand/roughen smooth surfaces. Assemble immediately. Press strongly and immobilize for at least 10-12 hours.
Despite the marginally higher cost of polyurethane adhesives, they do offer plenty of worthwhile benefits. They are well suited for use with a variety of different materials, and their strong adhesion allows single-sided application. Polyurethane adhesives are easy to work with. Polyurethane adhesives are also highly resistant to the elements and can endure heavy contact and impact.
