are a chemical formulation which is used to adhere the materials which range from basic household materials to construction materials. These are the substances used to embrace two surfaces together strongly for long duration. It is cautiously formulated blend of synthetic rubber and resins, inorganic fillers, coloring and preservative compounds borne in a specially selected blend of organic solvents designed to be compatible with and bond strongly to most common building materials. Construction adhesive is used in various applications such as bonding plywood, particle board, hardboard, decorative laminates, metals, concrete and others. The construction adhesives are broadly divided into resin types such as acrylic, epoxies, polyurethanes, silicones, phenolics, polyvinyl acetate and others. Polyurethane based adhesives can set solid and relatively fixed, or can remain rubbery and bendable.
Owing to benefits such as it can be used on wood, metals, rubbers, cured epoxy, leather, tile and glass, many plastics, concrete and brick, the list goes on. It does not work on polypropylene, polyethylene or on such substances as Teflon or silicone. Nor does it like waxy or oily surfaces.
