Which contact adhesives are best to buy?
Fondly and commonly known as contact cement, contact adhesive works to stick things together — but with a special characteristic that sets it apart from other popular adhesives: for a considerable period of time even after it has been applied to a surface and appears dry (to the touch), it’s still ready to function as desired and guarantee an effective bonding between the two parts you want to join. This makes it an excellent adhesive for gluing together materials that are nonporous that other adhesives can’t glue together.
The range of contact adhesive for sale at Buco will help you glue together projects across a broad mix of materials, from plastics, veneers, rubber, glass, metal, and even leather. It can also be used for gluing large surfaces like countertops in kitchens and bathrooms.
The reason you might be advised to find a contact adhesive waterproof option is because there are other glues that go on wet — and then need to dry to solidify the hold. People often reassemble their project before the glue is 100% dried, meaning that its hold will never reach its full potential. Contact adhesive is already dry on contact, and once the solvent has evaporated (you’d usually wait ±20 minutes), the cement forms a flexible bond with no residual moisture.
