- Home > Adhesive Types: Contact Adhesive
SmartAdhesives contact adhesives are fast-acting and ideal for attaching large surfaces together, such as laminating wood and plastics, mounting panels, and installing flooring. An even coat of the adhesive is applied to each surface and then allowed to dry and become tacky before the two surfaces are joined together.
Our contact adhesives provide immediate bonding (auto-adhesion) and are great when it is impractical to clamp pieces together while a bond forms. SmartAdhesives contact adhesives come in neoprene and nitrile versions, for different performance and application requirements, and are offered in two viscosities.
The solvent-based neoprene versions (C1 & C2) deliver the highest strength. The solvent-based nitrile versions (C3 & C4) offer increased resistance to weather and chemicals.
